Welcome to The Blue Bird vegetarian café!
The Blue Bird vegetarian café is located in the heartland of the culturally diverse inner-city suburb of Mount Eden in Auckland, New Zealand, and specialises in vegetarian and vegan cuisine. The Blue Bird is one of several small businesses run by members of the New Zealand Sri Chinmoy Centre. Both nationally and globally, the Sri Chinmoy Centre is dedicated to fostering a happier and brighter future – what our spiritual teacher Sri Chinmoy described as a ‘oneness-world-family’ – and to offering the message of inner peace and harmony to our modern world.
One of the theme goals at The Blue Bird vegetarian café is to provide a tranquil oasis for our customers – through friendly staff, peaceful music, a relaxing decor and a genuinely spiritual atmosphere. We believe that universal harmony begins in the heart of each individual and our goal is to nourish that harmony by offering delicious vegetarian food prepared in the spirit of love and oneness.
Our food is freshly prepared on the premises each day – a broad menu that varies daily and is vegan friendly. We also provide takeaway options, espresso coffee and a range of teas, smoothies and super food smoothies, fresh vegetable and fruit juices, extraordinary cakes and a catering service. We have upstairs and downstairs dining rooms and welcome group bookings.
As members of the Sri Chinmoy Centre, The Blue Bird's staff share a common interest in spirituality and meditation, and are each personally committed to daily meditation practice. Meditation has many benefits and is a master key to happiness and personal development. If you are interested in attending any of the free meditation classes that are offered by the Sri Chinmoy Centre in New Zealand, we invite you to visit the following web sites: Meditation Auckland, Meditation Wellington and Meditation Christchurch. You will also find information about our meditation classes and related activities here »
We look forward to serving you at The Blue Bird.
