Great breakfasts, really good coffee and lovely service. I had the eggs Benedict, which was delicious. Saw other peoples breakfasts arriving and Lulus doesn't stint on the size of servings. If you're hungry, this is the place to go. Small but perfect, with lots of character.

Awful service, awful food, don't value customers, no cards, and no character. There are so many amazing venues on Ponsonby Road we wish we never gave this place a go. Extremely rude staff.

We were staying at the Ponsonby Backpackers and decided to treat ourselves to breakfast and this is where we ended up! Great hostess and fab food. I had the oatmeal with banana, strawberries and maple syrup. This could keep you going all day! My traveling companion just had toast and jam - but that was pretty good too.

Have enjoyed Lulu's on Ponsonby Road many times, eat breakfast there regularly, super pancakes, love the eggs Benedict with salmon. Have enjoyed lunch too, fab pasta dishes. Great service, very good coffee, Trevor friendly and accommodating, nothing too much trouble, definitely recommend.

When we arrived in Auckland after a long and exhausting flight from Europe we were glad to find "Lulu's" little cafe and restaurant on Ponsonby Road. In our 10 days we spent in New Zealand we went there three times, so this speaks for itself! The owner (at least we think so...) who served us is a very lovely woman... More

Unpretentious, friendly, relaxed and almost cozy. They serve the kind of breakfasts you crave when you have a hangover... Good menu selection.

I've been here many times and will keep coming back. Cute little cafe with only a dozen tables or so but so much character. Great posters on the walls. Staff are friendly and very chatty. I'm a big egg eater and love their Green Eggs - scrambled eggs with spinach. Great coffee too. You're spoilt for choice on Ponsonby road... More

Every time I visit Auckland I make sure I stop by Lulu's in Ponsonby for one of the worlds greatest breakfasts - any time of the day. Love the elvis and retro music. Love the chocolate fish...always a bit of a squeeze - it's not big on space but huge on character and great food and hospitality - an absolute... More
