Good service in an amazing setting, sadly poor coffee, average food. Although kids were happy. Overall 5/10. Only because of the setting. A

We went there for a morning snack and coffee. Despite the restaurant being very busy, we were served quickly and received our food and drink promptly. Great coffee and very friendly staff.

Fantastic cheese scones, great variety on the menu. Nice service. This isn't America, it's NZ. For $24 you get a decent menu selection and very tasty food. You don't need 'the works'. $24 is quite standard in Auckland. The setting is lovely and tranquil, even in the winter. A nice stop after a good walk through the bush and around... More

Stopped by for lunch after a walk around the domain. Service was not that great. I had to walk through the entrance straight to their till after waited for 5 minutes without being greeted. The lamb stew came in a small casserole bowl with a layer of fried potato chips on top. It was that kind of comforting food that... More

When paying $24 pp for breakfast one would expect "The Works" including the choice of cereals, yoghurt, fruit, juices, mixed grill, toast, marmalade, cuppa etc. Not so at the Wintergarden Cafe. At least 40 of us were booked in for breakfast this morning, following the Dawn Parade, but... no cereals, fruit etc just straight into scrambled egg, grilled tomato, mushrooms... More

I come here regularly because I love the Wintergarden and come to the cafe for a cuppa afterwards. They use Dilmah loose leaf tea. Scones are nothing special but ok. The inside is inviting, with wooden floors and furniture, and big windows overlooking trees and plants. It is pleasant in all seasons. When warm enough I sit outside, where I... More

After exploring the magnificent wintergardens we were excited for a bite to eat at the cafe. While service was fantastic the food was a real disappointment. We ordered the croquet de Monsieur which was two slices of bread with a thick piece of ham with melted Swiss cheese and mustard. Very basic and unappetizing and not very nice to look... More

We visited for brunch on a public holiday and were happy to discover that they were serving both breakfast and lunch menus. We both opted for items from the breakfast menu and really enjoyed them. The sun was shining and we sat out on the veranda area which was very nice. The service was a little slow but not a... More

We enjoyed lunch at this cafe on a recent visit. We opted for simple fare of salad focaccias and tea. The servings were suitable and were well presented. The staff were attentive, and provided good service. We were able to dine on a paved area at the back of the cafe. It is a good alternative to other venues in... More

After walking around the Domain & Wintergarden we called in here for afternoon tea to refresh ourselves before walking back to our accommodation. We shared a gluten free cake (there was only one gluten free cake & only a few regular cakes). I asked for a couple of glasses of water, one of the servers wanted to charge me for... More
