After a walking tour of the area we happened upon this place for lunch. It is situated in a former shop and much of the decor has been retained which gives it some great atmosphere. Friendly helpful staff and a good menu.

The cafe is awesome, I had the mussels Thai and the taste was sensational. We also had white bait patties and this too was awesome, I don't really know as my wife wouldn't share that one with me so I would have to say it was.

Extensive menu, all of the food we had was good, the service was good (a bit lacking at times, maybe because we were outside). One of the better place in Devonport main strip to have a good meal.

Great place with very wide menu tot cater for all needs, it gets busy and therefore patience is required. But generally the food and location is great. We had 12 people so was big crowd well catered for..

I had dinner here last night, and as I'm in NZ, I had to try the Thai Mussels. They were fresh and tasty and one of the best mussel dishes I've ever had. The service was friendly and efficient. I highly recommend this restaurant.

We dropped in for dinner based on Trip Advisor reviews and were not disappointed. Lamb rack was delicious as was the pan fried snapper on a Greek salad. Beer selection was limited with only one on tap local craft lager.

We always stop here for lunch when in Auckland. The fish chowder is to be recommended. The Manuka omelette was so big that I had to leave some of it. The staff are friendly and the service is good. We shall be back.

This place looked good and was recommended by our tour guide. We had about 90 minutes in Devonport and our lunch took most of the time. I acknowledge that we should have let them know that we were on a time limit but we ordered simple things so didn't think it would be an issue. I ordered a fresh orange... More

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
