“A standout performer”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 19, 2014 via mobile

With a proliferation of cafés bustling for patrons' attention in a popular catchment area, this one has managed to stand above the rest! The apple and feijoa smoothie was one of the best smoothies I've ever had and the farmhouse breakfast was taste personified. Highly recommend trying this establishment!

Friendly service, great strong coffee. Had my first Cronut. Interesting sugary delight. Like the atmosphere in this cafe.

“Ironique - great place”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 27, 2014

One of my favourite cafes/restaurants, located in Mt Eden Village. Good food, lovely ambiance, big courtyard, friendly service and interesting decor. This is all recreated in old iron and needs to be seen to be appreciated. The bathroom especially is wonderful!
However - there are two things that could/should be improved.
1. No ordering at the tables - obviously they serve the food to the tables but it is inconvenient having to go back to the till area to order as there is often a queue there so could be delays.
2. The area round the till food counter cabinet and the path through to the outdoors and body of the cafe is very narrow and causes logjams frequently. This is unpleasant as sometimes is hard to get the the counter food and then you get too close to the tables in the front

In my view these are serious flaws in an otherwise great restaurant. It doesn't stop me going back every few weeks though

“Coffee, food, back patio - WIN!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 20, 2014

I love this place. Lola is a wizard at the coffee. The food is incredible, from the kitchen and the case. Service rocks. And you'll find a big breakfast sanctuary in the backyard patio. Perfect atmosphere. I'm so glad I live around the corner.
