Have been here twice recently for hot drinks and cake. Good choice of cakes in the cabinet. Both times hot chocs great and the apple cake is divine. Good service and friendly staff.

the coffee is good but the pancakes seemed defrosted or something and to hide it they were drowned in a maple syrup/sugar mix that destroyed any remnant of taste. One loud group means conservation is near impossible. Thankfully Petone has choices.

The worst egg Benedict ever: overcooked eggs, limp chewy bacon, only a tiny drop of hollandaise sauce. Everything was just thrown on to a plate, the food looked and tasted bad. My partner ordered coffee with food and it only arrived after he finished his meal, which was very average too: mushrooms on bread, mushrooms did not have enough sauce... More

Went to Cafe Figg on Boxing Day, understandably they were fairly busy and our food and drinks took a while to come out. One of the staff seemed a bit stressed and was happy to share with us her plans of getting drunk after work, not that we asked. She also shared her dissatisfaction with a previous customer who had...

I visited this cafe yesterday the coffee was very disappointing, cafe looks as if it could do with a clean. Fantastic location on the wonderful Jackson Street so with all the competition you would think they would try harder. It is mediocre at best.

Thats all it takes to put you off. Admittedly the guy who was doing it was just new but I paid the money and expect a good deal every time. The owner was there but a bit flustered.

I have been to Cafe Figg on a number of occasions, and have always enjoyed it. The staff are very friendly and welcoming. The cakes are a real treat, and the menu has something for everyone. I had eggs bene last time, and they were lovely. The portions are very generous, so great value for money. I would recommend it.
