The industrial looking City Works Depot is home to many gems. When the weekend hits, this little pocket of the city centre thrives. We think it’s worth spending an entire day there to ensure you can experience everything it has to offer.

3 Bean Coffee for a coffee fix

Time to head up to the top level of City Works, and let the aroma of freshly roasted coffee beans guide you to 3 Bean Coffee’s welcoming, yet intimate coffee shop. Here you can quietly sip back on a delicious and high-quality cup of morning goodness

Now it’s time for breakfast...

After all that drinking and stretching, you’ll probably be feeling a little peckish. Just around the corner is Best Ugly Bagels, a casual, upbeat eatery serving freshly baked bagels right before your eyes, with all the classics and more on the menu. Or head down to The Botanist, it doubles as a florist and eatery with a menu full of goodies like acai bowls or braised beef cheek on potato hash.
