Great corner cafe

While out house hunting on Sunday we needed a quick lunch stop and saw this corner cafe was busy with customers so went in. Ordered a pot of tea for 2 @$4 and ready prepared food from the cabinet that just needed heating. Tea arrived promptly and was real leaf tea not just tea bags in pot. Food... read more

Firstly I would like to day what a fantastic young man who served us - sorry can't remember his name but he was very helpful and informative! I arranged to meet a friend here for lunch. When I sat down there were dishes on the table - it took ages before they were cleared away. The whole place looked like... More

Obviously, something has changed at Meola Kitchen. I first visited this cafe 2 years ago and never went back. BUT, as I am living back in the area, I saw that many people were enjoying their morning tea/coffee at Meola Kitchen, so I went to try it and YES FINALLY A GREAT COFFEE and good customer service. So I have... More

Located on the corner of a busy street with a view to the harbour. Coffee is good and nicely presented. Had a Greek salad, the first ever real one in NZ. Chunky tomato, cucumber and feta cheese with balanced dressing, no greens! Just like it needs to be. Thanks

Good coffee and sublime pastry. Lovely for breakfasts in the sun. The lemon chutney and rhubarb croissant is criminally delicious.

I have been to this cafe in the past and it was quite solid. On this occasion (a Saturday morning) our long blacks came short, we had to ask for extra hot water, gluten free toast arrived as bagels, a poached egg came with a long blonde hair and a piece of crunchy shell atop some cold toast. Overall it... More

We have dined at Meola Kitchaen before, and enjoyed the food on the previous occasion. There were many tables outside on a sunny saturday afternoon and they are clean which is good. We ordered 2 chicken snitzel burgers, a coffee and an orange drink. The coffee arrived promptly and was excellent. We waited 20 minutes for the Burgers, at which... More
