Stopped off for lunch today, at Manuka Cafe. Extensive menu, catering for all kinds, gluten free, vegetarian. I had the "Smashed avocado with poached eggs" and it was extremely tasty. Lamb burger and Seafood Chowder had by the rest of the group, and we all agreed, it was well worth it. Not too expensive either. Only gripe was the Kumara... More

Easy to find, recommended by friends, and lived up to expectations: a good number and range of options on the menu (we weren't vegetarian, but had plenty of choice if we were). A good sized meal, too - we might have been tempted by the very good selection of dessert menu on the board or even one of many yummy... More

We were staying with our son in Auckland and love going over Devonport on the ferry. We'd been to Manuka on a previous visit to Auckland and enjoyed the experience. On this trip we went twice and the standard of food and service were just as good as we remembered. Great to sit outside on a warm day and also... More

Cheerful staff, interesting menu with really good food prepared in a minute kitchen. The restaurant had a good ambience - we sat inside on a really day, but it is possible to sit outside, Parisian style when the weather is better.

We stayed in Devenport for 48 hours and visited here twice. First for breakfast and another time for dinner. This was our first stop on a 3 week holiday in NZ and have to say we absolutely loved the food here. So tasty and delicious flavours! Coffee was great, would highly recommend the manuka specials...avo on toast & omelette.

We ordered the pancakes, the avocado toast and the carrot cake (HEAVEN!). The food was so delicious, that we came back for a 2nd time before we returned back home to the States. The... More

Manuka was recommended by a tour guide and we were not disappointed. The fish and chips dish was great as well as the prawns in chili garlic sauce. Lot's of choices for breakfast and lunch. Also, the gelato was fantastic.

We had a wonderful meal at Manuka Cafe - excellent seafood, good wine, sitting outside on a balmy Auckland evening in March.
