Very busy when we went for early lunch. I had the mushrooms and partner had the big breakfast; both were a good size and reasonable value for money. The downside was the eggs were overcooked to almost hard and both meals were barely warm when served. The mushrooms had great flavour; I would order them again especially as the next... More

I've been to Cafe Figg several times in the past, but they obviously have new owners. The meals were reasonably priced and were good portions. The staff seemed friendly and attentive. Petone has, in recent years, become flooded with small cafes and sometimes it is hard for one to stand out above the rest. In my opinion, Cafe Figg is... More

My wife and I had a lovely lunch at Cafe Figg in Petone Jackson Street today, both enjoying a beautiful egg benedict meal. The two eggs were perfectly poached covered with an ample serving of delicious butter mayonnaise on two hash brown pieces.I had a creamy mushroom side while my wife had a smoked salmon side. Really delicious!! The service... More

I went here for breakfast with my partner on Sunday morning. What a treat! We did use our entertainment book voucher, but would have happily paid full price for what we go. The Mocca was hot and delicious, and the banana smoothie was prefect. I ordered eggs benedict and my partner order the hash stack. Both were excellent - and... More

We decided if we could get a seat in Café Figg we would go here for brunch/lunch. It can be quite hard to get a seat as it's usually very busy - often a sure sign the food is good. We both decided to have the big breakfast and also ordered extra hot lattes. The coffee was certainly extra hot... More

During the recent Christmas break we went to this café a couple of times for morning tea. We go there as it has tables outside and we can take our dog with us. Both times the coffee and hot chocolate were very good. We also had cheese scones and carrot cake. Both were extremely tasty. The service was also very... More

Great lunch to be had here! A busy cafe with friendly staff, excellent food and service to match - what is there not to like! Food from the cabinet or from the menu - coffee was good. Due to business - very loud inside, so we retreated to the outside tables out the back - sun and serine!

My partner and I had a delicious lunch here. He had the chicken burger (not really a burger) that came with wedges and I had the roasted veggie stack (an item from the case) that came with a small salad. He had a banana smoothie and I had the rose and hibiscus tea. The service was very efficient but we... More

Have been to Cafe Figg a few times now and despite being relatively busy the staff their seem to run a tight ship. Plenty of options for food with both cabinet food and a well planned menu. Really enjoy the big breakfast from here. Great way to cure a hangover.
