“''Great location, try the cheese scone and flat white''”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 23, 2012

Nearly everyday I cycling from my suburb in Remuera to Grey Lynn and return take a different bike route from Auckland CBD down to east to Mission bay area. Located in a the highlight of Auckland this beach area is very famous especially in weekend will be very busy around this area.
The staff was very friendly and quite helpful. I enjoy my simple breakfast of Cheese Scone and Flat White from this cafe. Highly recommend!

“Chilling in the Bay”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 3, 2012 via mobile

Great place to sit and watch the world go by. Food is pretty darn good, only small issue is that they don't have a blender for smoothie's. Great selection if cakes and desserts Staff are also friendly and on the ball.
We are locals and have eaten here a dozen times or more never had a bad breakfast or meal.

“Great location, food and service”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 3, 2012

We were looking for somewhere for bruncht the other day, called into to mission bay cafe. Service was really prompt, coffee was excellent and the staff friendly. Wasn't cheap but on a par with other restaurants in the area, and seemed reasonable for the location. Would definitely recommend

“Good food but pricey”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed October 8, 2010

I've had both breakfast and lunch here, and the lunch menu didn't seem as pricy as the breakfast menu. You definately pay for the location and the trend of it all.
