Since she opened the first Mount Eden Mibo in 2022, Emma Zhao's vision involved melding her love for patisserie with the traditional Chinese flavours she grew up eating.

Her Wynyard Quarter bakery is a modern and elevated space, responding to its busy urban surroundings. It’s a little grander than its intimate sibling site but still reflects its warmth and friendly nature. Mibo 2.0 is lined with pale brickwork on the floor and counters, matching the light shade of the wood and walls.

While continuing to serve the signature pastries Mibo has developed a reputation for – like the apple caramel naisu danish, sausage brioche and those famous almond croissants – this larger site also has expanded offering. There's a full brunch menu, with many of the dishes heroing the bakery's own sourdough – a recipe Zhao’s head baker spent a year perfecting.

Try the ricotta, rhubarb and raspberry on sourdough, served with a healthy splash of olive oil. There are also richer dishes, such as the slow-cooked beef cheek with confit agria potatoes.

You'll find more extensive seating at this second address – up to 40 customers can dine at a time – with rich, red cushion-covered booths and cosy nooks to sit and wait in as your Flight Coffee brews. Wynyard Quarter has also become the principal kitchen for Mibo, facilitating fresh deliveries throughout the day to the Mount Eden flagship.
