Auckland's Herne Bay along with the surrounding neighbourhoods of St Mary's Bay, Ponsonby and Freemans Bay have a strong sense of
community and our Glengarry Jervois Road and Dida's Wine & Tapas Lounge and, nestled side by side, reflects this. Housed in the
original building where grandfather Jakicevich started his grocery store over 60 years ago, we are proud to say we're still here
and part of the community. It's still a firm favourite with not only the Herne Bay locals, but with many residents from the
surrounding areas as well as those heading home from the CBD towards the North Shore. Proud winner of a Top Shop 2015 Award in the Food & Beverage category!
