We visited on a Saturday evening with friends from out of town. We chose this place after seeing good reviews on TA. The staff were friendly and obliging but meals were disappointing. Quality of the food was ok but not outstanding.Servings were small and we felt over priced for what we ordered.The waitress asked us if we would like to... More

We met friends here for brunch, it was quite busy as we expected, however the choices were good for breakfast and you get quite a lot on the plate. We did experience a little problem with one of our group, asking for soy but this was not advised to the barista, once pointed out this was replaced, also the same... More

I had not expected as good a meal as we got here on a Friday night. The seafood chowder was excellent and so too was my pork belly. My wife was equally impressed with hers. The servings of wine by the glass were larger than many restaurants who charge a lot more. $102 for 2 courses each and 3 glasses... More

Good place to stop in Mission Bay. The coffee is as good as you get anywhere else in New Zealand (ie. Bitter and burnt tasting). The food is pretty standard cafe food for Auckland. Expensive breakfasts but OK priced lunches. Right across from the beach so the location is the main selling point.

My parents are living in St Heliers so I went over to visit. Mission Bay is a great cafe, perfectly situated opposite the beach. The drinks are very tasty, amazingly broad selection of coffee. Definitely worth a visit, hands down the best cafe in Mission Bay.

Open for Breakfast/lunch and dinner. Always excellent for quality of food and Service. Extensive menu however you never have to wait long from ordering to receiving your food. Breakfast and Lunch are 4 star however dinner is 5 star. Taste and presentation equals any 5 star restaurants in Auckland. Certainly Best in Class at Mission Bay.

We went there for dinner last Sunday. Finally we have found a place which was warm and cosy on a very cold Auckland night. The service was very good. The food had nice flavours. If you there, you need to try siagra boregi. They are part of a starter and they are beautiful. I would definitely go back.

Our lunch turned out to be a pleasant experience and a good value! We each ordered salad mains which were professionally prepared and tasty. I would recommend this cafe to anyone looking for a nicely prepared meal.
