Manuka is a great cafe in Devonport for a bit of lunch. There is quite a variety of pretty affordable dishes on the menu, the coffee is great and eating outside is definitely a plus on a sunny day.

We had the fish and chips, which comes with a small salad, & the salmon & asparagus risotto. Both were VG, served fresh and hot. The F&C wasn't greasy and I believe the chips were double fried like ponmes frites. The service was attentive and helpful. No rushing you out to leave you sidewalk table. Enjoy the food and staff...

As a local I tend to leave Manuka for the tourists. But meeting a friend there for lunch the other day I was pleasantly surprised. It's not fine dining but everything is competent and extremely pleasant; food, service, coffee and of course the pavement eating vibe is charming.

Having flown into Auckland that morning we took the ferry to Devonport (an extra trip with our Harbour cruise booking) to see what it was like. Loved Devonport and it's worth the short trip. We needed to eat but didn't know what. Manuka cafe grabbed our attention as it had a few light dishes in the menu. Staff were helpful... More

Came here for lunch, one of my favourite cafes on the Taka-Devonport peninsular, but I've been overseas for a year and wondered if Manuka was still good. Yes, it is! I had the sesame ginger chicken salad which was outstanding. The ginger is the picked pink kind you have with sushi and once mixed into the salad made a lively... More

We just dropped in for late lunch, everyone was amazingly well cooked and served...and pretty fast too. I probably had the best monkfish I have ever eaten. staff were delightful and helpful. Yes must do.

Pretty average food for the high rating this gets on trip advisor. My poached eggs were not runny which is the most important thing for me!! The toast was under toasted and more like bread. Would have been nice to have had some free range and gluten free options. Nice outdoor seating but the food was pretty poor.

As the title suggests.... great pizza. A well planned dinner stop once the sun gets too low across the road at The Patriot and the sun umbrellas cease to do their task...
