First up in the morning, Oaken serves up 63.5-degree eggs on sourdough with house smoked butter for breakfast, Wagyu bresaola sandwiches for lunch and house made pork and fig sausages for dinner alongside Te Matuku Oysters from Waiheke.

Local whites and reds dominate the wine list that also has a solid European feel – on it, the Trinity Hill Homage Syrah, Domaine du Pegau Chateauneuf du Pape Rhone blend and Mountford Estate Liaison Chardonnay from Waipara dominate proceedings.
