More of a cafe-bar than a restaurant or pub, Aikmans caters to the Merivales cafe society and is popular with inner-city workers. From the moment you pass by the flaming torches at the gate, it is apparent that Aikmans is a stylish, trendy establishment. Its open-plan layout, contemporary colors and chrome furniture give it a very modern feel. There is a cozy terrace to the front of the building with gas patio heaters, enabling the most die-hard customers to relax al fresco throughout the year. There is a good selection of New Zealand wines and bottled beers from its small bar and a good range of contemporary food. Open daily from 8.30a onwards.
