Lovely spot, great food

We came here based on a friends recommendation. The staff were very friendly and attentive, the location is stunning - we sat outside directly opposite the beach. We had coffee which was very good and lamb koftas with bulgur wheat - delicious. A great little place, well worth a visit.

My wife and I recently enjoyed an impromptu late lunch at this establishment. The waitresses were welcoming and we sat at a window table outlooking onto the wonderful Hauraki Gulf. It was a quiet midweek afternoon in Maraetai Village, and the restaurant was quiet .. although we visited after lunch-time. Anyway, the menu was varied and inviting, and when our... More

Got here just on closing time on a Sunday and they sneaked in one last coffee for my wife and I. Really good coffee. Also had a great piece of carrot cake. In the end the location could not be any better on a nice sunny afternoon looking over the water out toward Waiheke.

We had a delicious lunch , received great service too. Coffee was good and view to die for. Nothing to complain about the chicken was tender and the fish fresh. Highly recommend.

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 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 believe you... 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
