We’re five sisters from New Zealand who have always loved finding amazing travel, gastronomic and lifestyle experiences, and sharing them with others.

Our blog ‘What’s Yummy’ was started in 2012 and focussed on providing useful, imagery-focussed reviews of fantastic eateries in Auckland (when Instagram was almost non-existent and you couldn’t stalk a cafe’s menu before you visited).

As you’ll know, since then a lot has changed in respect of food reviews and social media, and so have our lives! We’re (relatively) grown up compared to when we started and now working in various fields. Additionally, a few of us have taken flight – like many a good kiwi before us – and are living overseas.

As a result, we’ve gradually broadened the focus of our blog, which is now ‘Hadlow Girls’. We’re excited to be sharing more about our travel experiences, where to go and what to do when you get there (yummy things will definitely still be part of this), and more generally, how we love to live – from our favourite recipes to exercise to beauty, we’ll be covering more of what makes us tick.

Our platforms include this website and @hadlowgirls on Instagram.

We hope you enjoy following our journey and would love to hear from you, particularly if you have any suggestions of places to visit for holidays or weekend getaways!

  1. You should visit “Toru” it just opened as the front cafe in the new Ponsonby Central on Ponsonby road, they do a good coffee and cool atmosphere. You should also try Dizengoff on Ponsonby road next to GPK for brunch and best coffee in town. Also Shakey Isles in Kingsland is yummy too!

  2. Love your blog, it is filled with great insight.

    At the moment my favourite cafes in Auckland, which you should definitely check out are Cafe TwentyThree in Mt. Eden (next to gluten free grocer) and Jaffa on Richmond Road (next to jetset bohemia. If you haven’t been yet, would be cool to see a review on these.

    Also, check out my facebook page: Nat Attacks A Balanced Life.

  3. Love your blog! We eat out a lot and it’s great to read about places we haven’t tried, and to get reminders about places we haven’t been to in a while! 🙂
    Wondering if you can mention if/whn places have outdoor seating? Being newish dog owners, this makes a difference to our choices.

  4. You guys should check out Charlie and George, a funky little new cafe in Stonefields, it’s pretty good! Love your website by the way, it’s awesome! 🙂

  5. Love reading all about your food adventures and getting inspiration for weekend coffee dates! Can you recommend where in Auckland do the best, freshly homemade afghan biscuits?!
