Nice eggs.....

Needed somewhere to have breakfast....ordered the scrambled eggs..and was not disappointed. The bread it was served on was really nice, and the texture of the eggs was perfect. The coffee was nice, would have had another cup..but had to get to work.

A couple of years ago, I was a regular customer off Cafe Figg. The coffee and food was and still is good and I liked the athmosphere. A small back yard with some tables, a nice couch at the window and inside good sitting althought we always thought that the tables were a bit too close. We prefer the two... More

Had the sister in law over from Brisbane and since we need to stock our supply of beautiful fresh water from the fountains in Petone decided to have lunch. The day was stunning so every man and his dog was out and about. Popped into Cafe Figg as they seemed to have the best selection of gluten free for the... More

Quite possibly THE best place for coffee and cake in the region. To begin with, my long black as good - good strength, flavour, with a decent crema, and actually hot. I am very fussy about my coffee, so this gets Figg off to a great start in my book. Then there are the cakes - yesterday there were 11... More

This cafe has a separate Gluten Free menu, based on the regular menu. The surprising and impressive thing for me was that the prices on the GF menu were the same as the regular one. For example, i had the creamy garlic mushrooms on GF toast for $10.50, the same as creamy garlic mushrooms on ordinary toast. My partner enjoyed... More

I can hardly remember the details, just that I was unimpressed. The espresso was good, though. I only went a month ago....? There was not much choice in the breakfast menu, as I recall. Very ordinary.
