This is not normally my type of restaurant - busy, noisy, mostly young clientele (no-one over 40?). But arriving in to Auckland very late in the evening, we were delighted to find one that was still open and serving good food! The location is so...More

Opens early for breakfast - try the beignets with a coffee and is pretty much open all day; gets crowded from 5.30pm really when the local office workers drop by. A really good spot!
