I have been coming here for about 6 years and absolutely love it! Chris the chef is awesome he still remembers me when I visit from Australia and makes the best breakfast in the world (thats my opinion). I have to admit sometimes the girls serving you can be quite daft or just don't understand you which can be annoying.... More

We both ordered the eggs benedict and it was really good. Sat out the back and walked past the kitchen and the Chef greeted us and it was a very friendly place. Food was out fast and we got the sweet bacon and there was nothing left on our plates at the end. Love being able to sit outside

Called here today with 2 friends and enjoyed brunch and coffee. On the main Ponsonby drag we were able to sit in the courtyard out the back yet in the shade. Food was ordered on the way through from the front of the restaurant off the extensive menu on the wall. No shortage of choice from all day breakfast to... More

We have come here a few times while in the city. Garden area is great to relax and enjoy your breakfast. Staff are very nice and the food is really good. Service can be a little slow but if you're there to relax for brunch it's not a big issue.

Went for lunch with a friend and sadly should have given a wide berth. Menu on blackboards only, orders taken on a post it note at a counter, no customer interaction, the person taking the order struggled with the English language (sounded eastern European), irritating graffiti on the walls and food was at best rubbish. OK there is a nice... More

Another of those hippy cafés with menus on a blackboard, orders written down on post-its and tacky outside seating with horrible graffiti on the walls. The food was insipid and portions very small - my partner was still hungry after our meal.

Ate here for the first time at this cafe and it was good solid kiwi food at a reasonable price. It has a nice outside setting that's tucked away out the back of the cafe. They have "famous" sweet bacon but its disappointing.. Just bacon cooked in maple syrup!
