These guys deserve a big thumbs up - coffee is fantastic and what amazing service. Have previously eaten dinner here and also enjoyed it. Last month, I visited here almost daily for 3 weeks - great hospital location & the staff were so kind to even offer free coffee after having purchased so many. Really appreciated this!

Great food, coffee, atmosphere and staff. All the boxes ticked. Were great with kids and a grumpy grandpa. Thanks so much for making the day start like it should.

We had eaten here before and found the meal quite good, but today the eggs benedict for brunch was below average. The eggs were overlooked, the sauces was far too mustardy and the ham was the cheap stuff. Service was good but that doesn't make up for a poor meal. We won't be going here again.

Went to this cafe with a bunch of friends. The service was disorganised, we asked for water and we were looked at like we were asking them to turn water into wine. I had the calamari and was disappointed by how little there was (5 very small pieces). The thing that probably most disappointed me was when we had finished,... More

Went there to have a relaxing break whilst waiting for a loved one to come out of surgery (surely a common reason for visiting this cafe). Greeted rudely by man behind counter (chef/ owner?) asking what we wanted. Chocolate brownie ordered was more like a dry, vaguely-chocolate cake. Asked twice for yogurt to go with cake, speaking to a lovely,... More

This is a nice cafe with friendly staff. It is right opposite the hospital, so if you happen to be there for any reason, this is a good place for lunch or dinner.

I go there occassionally for a coffee, usually a take out. The coffee is good, and I must have had about 5 or 6 coffees there over a year, and all consistently good.

This place used to be my favourite - great People's Coffee, a good range of counter food and excellent menu. Unfortunately the People's Coffee was replaced by an Auckland brand of inferior quality, and the counter food has become smaller and pricier. The service is always excellent but I now feel disappointed by the decline over the past several years.
