Ivan's restaurant, Auckland, early 1980s

Ivan's restaurant, Auckland, early 1980s

Ivan's was a casual restaurant located on Auckland's Ponsonby Road between 1964 and 1995. It offered simple, affordable food like sausages, steak and chips, eggs and buttered white bread right up until it closed in 1995, the proprietors uninfluenced by the gentrification of the neighbourhood. These casually dressed daytime diners look very comfortable in Ivan's homely surrounds.
