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.

The staff were good, nice place to sit, good ambience, with the money Tree mural covering a full wall. Scrambled eggs tasted a bit odd- looked like maybe powdered so g0 for the poached Ones . The Coffee was very acceptable. Recommended for coffee but not brunch.

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
