“Always good!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 13, 2013

This has got to be my fav place for brunch and lunch. I have been there many times since it open and never had a problem. The banana and bacon French toast is the best.

“Good cafe for Weekend brunch”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed December 2, 2012 via mobile

Jafa gets quite full on the weekends but its worth the wait (the food took a while to come today). The menu is quite simple but the food is fresh and tasty. Coffees are good.. I'll go back

“Excellent breakfast spot”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 6, 2012

A buzzy cafe with a great menu and terrific food. Service was professional, but meals can be a little slow in arriving. On the most recent visit had the kidneys and bacon with truffle oil - delicious! But not a spot if you're in a hurry.

“Great cafe in Grey Lynn”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 18, 2012

Food is great. Brunch and Lunch really tasty. Service can be ad hoc. Some staff really good, some disinterested. Coffee is really good but can take quite some time to arrive. Very popular local spot and I happily travel a bit to go there as not a local.
