“Not bad, very good location”
Reviewed March 12, 2012

Whenever I'm in Auckland and staying in or around Queen St, I find the Vulcan cafe a good choice to start your day. This cozy little nook offers good coffee (in comparison to Wellington's grade A coffee, this is a huge compliment), and the breakfast menu is appetizing. I wouldn't say there's anything extraordinary about the all day Breakfast menu but it is tasty and good value.

I think the Vulcan cafe is a family cafe, it is located in a very handy location on Vulcan Lane (just off Queen St). I'd go here often if I work in one of the nearby offices. I'd recommend this cafe over others if you're looking for a good bite for good value and arguably better than Maccas.

“Best cafe in Auckland city”
Reviewed March 3, 2012

I was staying in a hotel just around the corner so it was great to stumble upon the Vulcan cafe. Coffee was great, the food was tasty and the staff were friendly.

“Great range of breakfasts and excellent sandwiches”
Reviewed March 2, 2012

Had breakfast here on one of our first mornings in Auckland. Great range of breakfast food, and our breakfast was delicious. Simple but very tasty - toast and muesli.

The chiller cabinet had some lovely looking sandwiches so we bought some to take away for lunch. Equally delicious.

Decor is quaint and Vulcan street is quite trendy in a Bohemian sort of way.

“Great coffee, food and service”
Reviewed December 29, 2011

We arrived on an early morning flight and dragged ourselves around Auckland looking for somewhere for coffee & breakfast - luckily we came across Vulcan Cafe! We ended up having brekky there almost every morning that we were in Auckland - lovely fresh food and coffee, and friendly and efficient service. We'll be back!
