Great location but....

This cafe has one of the best locations in Auckland but it just doesn't fire up at all. I'm a local and have given it plenty of opportunities to impress me but it hasn't. The coffee is really weak , the food is nothing special and the service slow. Plus the opening hours are too short. I can't... read more

We are new to the Auckland area & happened upon this place whilst out exploring. Decided to stop & have lunch here. Fairly unassuming interior but we were very impressed with the food. I had a corn stack which was beautifully presented & filled with plenty of crispy sweet cured bacon. My husband had the Rubén sourdough sandwich, again very... More

This is a fantastic place to stop for morning tea or a lunch in our experience. This was our second visit over recent months. Great coffee and would highly recommend their Thai Beef salad which was the best I have ever had! My husbands Calamari was tasty and cooked to perfection too.

Dropped in for Valentines Day lunch today. Cafe was very busy but we found a table and ordered. Staff warned us that there was a bit of a wait but we weren't in any hurry anyway. Our drinks came out in a reasonable amount of time and the staff kept checking on us to see if we were happy with... More

Funky little cafe in great spot with view so close to beach. We are here on a busy holiday. Plenty of staff and a beautiful day. The menu is limited but fresh sounding. An hour now and we still await food. It feels like lots of people racing around achieving little. A real shame as we are over it! Get... More

A beautiful sunny and warm Saturday morning last week for breakfast here was delightful. Friendly service although a tad slow (relaxed). Food was delicious except for the bacon that looked like beef - yucky and not crispy. Scrambled eggs were delicious

Have read some of the other reviews and was very surprised to note the amount of dissatisfaction. Perhaps there has been a change of management or something since we went there in early 2013. We stopped off for lunch on a weekday and were very happy with the service, the cleanliness, the menu and the food quality. We certainly did... More

Popped in for Saturday brunch and quickly realised that they were again understaffed. It's either that or they just are overwhelmed in the kitchen. After 15 mins of nothing, we got water and a coffee order in. Ten minutes later a food order was taken and 55 mins after we arrived, two poached eggs on a bit of toast with... More

Came here for drinks with some friends after a nice walk along the beach. We had to wait about 25 minutes to have our order taken..wouldn't really recommend.

We ordered coffee and cake for two. The coffee took a few minutes which was fine, but we had to wait a few more minutes for the cake which they should have brought out at the same time. There was bird faeces on the back of the chairs (indoors) which, after getting some on my hand, they wiped the chairs... More
