My family had breakfast here the morning after arriving in Auckland. We had stayed at the adjacent Ibis. Breakfast and coffee were very good, if a bit pricey, but this is quite normal for New Zealand. One thing to note is that the food did not arrive at the same time, but came out 1 by 1 over a span of about 10 minutes.

This cafe is situated in the same building as the ibis Budget Hotel. A great place for breakfast, lunch or or coffee. Great service

called in for a coffee and a scone
Asked if scones were fresh and was advised they were so didnt get it heated , as this can make them soggy
Coffee was weak lacking flavour , was obvious a single shot , but poor quality coffee
The scone WAS DEFINITELY NOT FRESH and the fact that it wasnt heated they couldnt hide behind this fact
The scone was dry and crumbly very firm in texture , would have thought it was at least 1 or 2 days old judging by the texture
When i advised the wait person on leaving about not being honest i could see from his reaction he knew he had been caught out
If they had of been honest i would have ordered something else , but i wouldnt return as this was my second bad experience here, should have known better

Were staying at the nearby Ibis and called in for a quick bite before flying. Service was quick and friendly but my husbands panini was microwaved and soggy and my blueberry friand was only average. Filled the gap but would not return.

We went here the morning after staying at the Ibis.

Coffee was decent enough, there was a nice amount of choice on the menu and in the cabinet.

There is also free wifi which was nice to be able to check emails and let home know we'd arrive safely as the Ibis Budget doesn't have free wifi.
