Not only was the food scrumptious, the man ( owner?) who adjusted my chai tea was a charming barista. My husband and daughter had some of the best chicken penne and I had a equally good avocado/chicken salad. Quaint and reasonable prices. We really enjoyed the extra attention to make everything just right.

It was really good that I visited the place 3 times in 2 days during my short stay at Takapuna. Sited just beside the Old Vic theatre, this quaint cafe serves nice coffee and cakes. For those whole just want some quiet time, this would be a nice place to just chill and read a book and people watch.

You just have to stop by Corelli's if you are in Devonport. This isn't a big restaurant, but they have both indoor and outdoor seating. The decor is funky, and relaxed, but the service is good and the food even better. The daily special is great value, give it a try, and take some baked goods home with you. They... More

Corelli's is truly an eclectic place to eat which I thoroughly enjoyed! The dinner menu was filled with many options that all look good. We had the fish & chips and it was very good and the fries were very nicely done. The water taxi across to Devonport from Auckland was an added extra to get to the restaurant. .

We were pleasantly surprised to visit and enjoy the selection of light meals, a bit pricey though given everything seems expensive in Australia and New Zealand at first but when we do reverse calculations and the fact that all taxes are included and minimum wages are pretty decent compare to Canadian standards.

We were in Devonport looking for lunch, then we saw the $12 lunch sign, so we grabbed a table and sat down. The $12 lunch wasn't even a menu, just a couple of corn fritters with a load of salad, chips are extra...Hardly a deal! I don't know if the young staff were too cool or just really didn't want...

We had a lovely breakfast here and it got our favorite afternoon coffee place. They have a super homemade muffin, just yummy. Fine service even when crowded.

We went to Corelli's for our last dinner in New Zealand because in Devonporti t rates #1 on Trip Advisor, and to say we were disappointed is an understatement. But to be fair : I suspect it is just not my kind of place, because almost everyone else seemed to be having a good time. My wife's salmon was generous... More

My husband and I were on a private tour of Auckland area. When we reached Devonport, our guide suggested we have lunch here. It is cozy and comfortable. We ordered some Chardonnay by the glass, which was excellent. I tried the day's featured soup, tomato and feta with garlic bread, which was quite tasty. My husband ordered the warm chicken... More

Saw this cafe on Tripadvisor so decided to stop for lunch. Maybe expectations were too high after seeing the reviews but I was a bit disappointed with my meal (salmon mash). Salmon was pretty dry and the overall meal was a bit flavourless. However my partner ordered The Works and the mushrooms that accompanied it were so delicious - I... More
