“No good anymore”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 10, 2013

It was very good couple of years ago. Fresh tasty homemade counter and kitchen food, excellent coffee, good service, reasonable price and warm atmosphere. But now it all dissapeared, gone back to an very average cafe. Feel soory for them.

“Nice local cafe with good staff”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 14, 2013

Frasers is a staple in Mt Eden and always well patroned. The blackboard menu has the usual fare and they allow 'build a breakfast' ordering single items (poached egg, rashers of bacon...). The team are very friendly and the cafe has a family/local feel. The kitchen in quick, coffee quite strong. Oddly they took the 'side' of home style baked beans off the menu (poorer for it & staff chatted to each other to say that it was popular & a shame). Good value casual cafe.

“hum”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 15, 2013

i work in the food trade and was chatting to my employer about what makes a busy restaurant and frasers entered the conversation. My boss liked it for its busyness and shabby chic look whereas i had the opposite opinion, it looks dirty, has child waiters in their outdoor/going out attire and generally poorly trained staff. Hey ho. My advice for what its worth if the restaurant is grubby in the places they let you see what about the places they dont?
After an initial slightly confusing ordering process my brunch was fine, simple eggs but the place was heaving, they must be doing something right. To its credit its marginally cleanerr than circus circus and more interesting than the frankly gay looking mozaic opposite.

“Great breakfast and cakes”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 26, 2013

Awesome breakfast menu with reasonable portions and price. Lovely cakes at the counter. Good service. Only problem is the jam packed tables and chairs, you can barely walk around when full.

“Great vibe”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 8, 2013

Bustling cafe that always has a good busy vibe. Amazing lemon meringue pie.

Banoffee pie looked great but didn't quite deliver. Convenient location in the heart of Mt Eden village.
