This place had the best eggs Benedict I've ever had. Crispy sesame toast, salty bacon, and great sauce... Amazing. However, the coffee wasn't quite as good as I was hoping for. Nevertheless, a quality meal.

Free unlimited wifi and a nice ambiance for getting things done or visiting with friends. Right off the main road and at the foot of Mt. Eden.

Visited here for a quick coffee and was lucky enough to find a parking spot right outside. Coffee was average and typical Sierra style decor.

There were 6 of us ranging in age from early 70s to 12. We all had lovely food and coffees. We sat for 2 hours chatting and no one suggested we should move on.

This attractive and peaceful little cafe in Mt Eden village is our ''local'' brunch provider ( when we feel the need ) and it genuinely does provide a relaxed village atmosphere , particularly at the weekends before noon . If one is fortunate enough to arrive at the right time , there are armchairs at the tables nearest the front... More

I love the comfortable chairs they have with a few tables at the front of the cafe. I feel so relaxed sitting on them and that really adds to the enjoyment of the coffee and lunch. A place I would definitely go to if I am looking for a cosy place for a catchup with friends.

Went here for breakfast and even though they were moderately busy, the coffee was delivered promptly and was really great. The food too was pretty good, and although I tend to like my French toast to be a little crisper, no complaints here.

The upgraded surroundings make this a lovely cafe to visit. Food is always fresh and there are plenty of healthy options. Coffee is excellent. We love sitting in the window in the armchairs. Staff are very friendly and helpful. Family friendly with space out the back and a sandpit. This area is also upgraded and really nice and warm.

This place was v v average a few years ago but it was my favourite this time! The service is great, the prices are excellent and the back area in the sun in the morning is wonderful. I will be back!!!
