I enjoyed crepes and fruit for a light lunch while enjoying the views of Auckland Harbor. They also have magazines that you can borrow while there. The cafe is only about 10 minutes walk from the Devonport Ferry terminial, along the shoreline. The interior is not fancy but overall very pleasant.

We enjoyed lunch here. There are a good amount of seats avaliable as well as a small carpark. The views across the water to down town Auckland are lovely. the service was quick and the food was very good. Would recommend the corn fritters and eggs benedict.

After visiting the Naval Museum it is a must to enjoy a coffee at the Torpedo Bay Cafe. Just order and order a capuccino with a slice of chocolate brownie and let your eyes watch the shore....

We dined here on our first morning in Devonport. We had Corn Fitters and the Mushrooms with a Cream Sauce on Ciabatta, very nice indeed. A flat white and espresso -total $41. The coffee was good and we returned the following week. It was Mother’s Day so very busy. Lots of children playing in the adjacent park. Very buzzy. The... More

We had an excellent coffee here in the morning then visited again for lunch after visiting the Naval Museum. Lunch was less successful as 3 of our 4 meals arrived and after a long wait we enquired about the 4th meal only to find the order was lost. It turns out that this had happened previously to one of the... More

We walked along here from Devonport ferry terminal. It's a lovely spot with a nice view of the harbour. The prices were fairly reasonable for the area and food served. We had crab cakes and they were delicious, we followed this with kapiti ice creams which were only $3.50. Would definitely recommend.

Great location lovely to sit and watch the kids on the playground. Outlook superb. Coffee excellent, ice-cream yummy. Only one tall staff member was calm and the lady in the kitchen smiled at us but that was it. The staff were jostling for space, two of them were arguing - off putting - the timing was out delivery and service... More

Reasonable prices, great service, and good food. We went to lunch 2 days in a row. Residents of all ages and families all frequent the cafe and it is conveniently located next to navel museum. It's a neighborhood place which is fun to be a part of.

The food was over priced and very poor tasting. The milkshake had no flavour and service was poor. Our table was covered in news papers and no effort was made to removed these.

I guess most people who go here are drawn to the Naval Museum, but if you are just having a stroll by the harbour this cafe has plenty of outdoor seating, decent enough cafe food and drinks, and is next to a nice little beach if you fancy a dip.
