There may be no such thing as a free lunch, but $10 lunches do exist. Here's our guide to delicious lunch eats on the cheap.
An old-school Kiwi-style bakery specialising in sandwiches, pies, cakes and other baked delights. As regular customer Dave says: "I like it because there’s a decided absence of horrific ingredients such as kale, they use white bread which is delicious and sadly maligned, it’s dirt cheap and hipsters are happily absent." Not for long. Image: @artcraftbakery
A cheap lunch mecca, Capital Market's lemongrass chilli chicken banh mi. As Jess, a banh mi regular says "Their baguettes are crispy but don’t flake all over the place which means you can return to work still looking like an adult, rather than a toddler who’s just eaten their lunch". Jess has a toddler, so you know she's speaking the truth. Jess recommends going with the jumbo size ($9) and always with chilli sauce.
Tommy Millions is Wellington’s own pizza empire, dishing up New York-style pizza across three inner-city sites for around $5/$6 for a slice and bonus 2-for-1 margherita slices from Courtenay Place, Monday to Friday 11am-4pm. Image: @tommymillions
