We passed this local Italian bakery in Wellington, New Zealand often near Wellington Harbour and finally tried some of their focaccia flatbreads and bagels: Pandoro Panetteria Bakery.

(This is a roasted onion + olive focaccia flatbread. Price: $4,30 NZD)
My favourite focaccia flatbread was rosemary and roasted onions. It smelled really good and tasted just right for an Italian focaccia! I didn’t like the olives and roasted onions too much (hint: I’m not a fan of olives). Each focaccia flatbread costs $4,30. The plain focaccia flatbread costs $3,20. Top it up with hummus from a grocery store and you will be filled for a meal already!
If you feel like having bagels, there are varieties such as sesame or poppy-seed. Each bagel costs $2,00. I would get a focaccia because of the portion size plus with lots of flavour. I didn’t like how the bagels taste really thick in dough, but they are great for sandwiches such as hummus, fresh salsa and vegetables.
