38 mins ... Cafe not that busy and finally we asked for it on takeaway cups. One mouthful and into the bin. Coloured milk!!! No coffee flavour at all. Certainly my last visit.

After a day of walking we had to stop for a quick bite and something hot to drink. Carrot cake was exceptional but the apple crumble uninspiring; the staff member might at least have offered cream/yoghurt to go with it. Great location needs to be matched with customer service, which NZ generally lacks.

Being a local, I have visited this restaurant sporadically over the years. The owner has changed a handful of times since & the food differs depending. In the past I have been there & really enjoyed my food! However upon recent visits, I have found my food comes cold, or really isn't THAT flavoursome. Coffee has always been great though.... More

A short drive away from the rat race of a large City brought us to Maraetai on the south west coast of Auckland's Hauraki Gulf- about 40 minutes from Auckland's CBD. It was an overcast yet warm autumn week day morning with cloud just high enough not to totally obscure both Waiheke and Ponui Island's in the distance. Kayakas paddled... More

We often visit the restaurant, however this time around we found the service very poor. Place was pretty busy and looked liked they only had 3 waitresses running the place. The table we found still had previous customer dishes, so I went to counter to ask for the table to be cleaned and waited for a few minutes. I clearly... More
