Cross Eatery is a perfect little nook on busy Clarence St that is perfect for takeaway coffee, a dine in lunch or even a study or work session in. It is super close to Wynyard Station so it is in the hustle and bustle of the CBD. Cross Eatery is in this really broad, open and communal space that is inviting and modern and almost makes me reminiscent of places such as Melbourne, Scandinavia and even New York City.
On Facebook, they describe themselves as a ‘A CBD destination passionate about specialty coffee, honest, sustainable, nutritional food and service with a smile‘

When you see all the corporate types and queues to order, you’re immediately attracted to this little nook on Clarence St. The queue moves fast which is exactly what you want during a morning rush.
For lunch, I decided to opt for the Cross Sabih. The dish has roast spiced eggplant, tomato, hummus, pickled cucumber, yoghurt, tahini and boiled egg. It’s sort of like an open sandwich. I am always in the mood for eggs. I felt this was an interesting choice for a sandwich with a Middle Eastern twist. It looks amazing!
I thought this was delicious and I really enjoyed the hummus and tahini with the flatbread. I wish it had more flavour. However, it could be that eggplant just doesn’t really give a strong flavour. I thought it was a little overpriced but overall, I don’t think the dishes were overly expensive. The service was really quick and friendly.
Overall, I had a pleasant experience at Cross Eatery. I might want to try their coffee one day but there are so many cafes that I haven’t tried out yet that I would love to pop in for lunch.
