Great coffee with a fine view over the bay

I visited in August - winter - and piping hot coffee and great slice of cake was just what I wanted after the bracing sea front walk from the ferry terminal. The museum here is also well worth spending some time visiting too.

Stopped off for cake and coffee and for the range of snacks very good together with great service. If you are ever passing it is worth a visit.

As my husband and I were visiting the Torpedo Bay Navy Museum, we decided to have lunch there before touring the museum. The cafe has quite a large menu for a small establishment. You can get breakfast there, as well as lunch or just coffee and cake. We had lunch and were not disappointed. The food was great, with ample... More

I went with a friend and couldn't believe the prices of simple food. Sandwiches were $16. I had a filo chicken and bacon roll with salad. It was heated in a microwave and was so hard I could hardly cut through it. The salad wasn't much better. My friend had cheesecake with was not more then a sliver. Very disappointing.

Burnt beans ... all packed up an hour before closing. You even had to get your own chair. There was meant to be a shot of caramel in the coffee. It was terrible terrible terrible. Avoid the coffee but go to the museum.

Lovely spot and nice food but it is very expensive and they add a 15% surcharge for public holidays so I won't be returning.

The location of the cafe is one of the reasons to eat here, at the base of North Head and directly beside the Navy museum and views across the bay. The food here is pretty good too, we just had tea and cakes ( lemon tart and an almond and caramel slice ), very nice. A bit pricey maybe but... More

Tourists and locals should make this a top priority when visiting or living in Auckland. Sitting outside the cafe with the backdrop of Auckland Harbour with its yachts and other water traffic is great. It's a double experience with its attachment to the RNZN Museum. A must for families. Food was great too. Menu is much the same as other... More

Stopped here after viewing the Torpedo Bay Navy Museum. The coffee was lovely and the smoothies/milkshakes are divine. Lovely little date slice too. Paying "city" prices though - not cheap. Gorgeous spot and beautiful, even on an overcast day.

Called here for coffee with friends over from Wales, UK. Friendly staff and excellent coffee. Our friends also bought food to take up Rangitoto which was well packaged. The cafe is also the site of the Naval Museum which is full of artifacts and well worth a visit. It is situated at the end to the Naval base which is... More
