Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.
Learn more about our review moderation.

We had coffee and cheese scones. It was so delicious. The owners are very friendly and we had a great time. It is a nice option if you are walking around.

A lovely cafe in Parnell. I called in for a light breakfast and chose poached eggs - they were perfect! Fresh, whites not runny and with a lovely whole grain toast. Having poached eggs just right is hard to find! The cappuccino I had with...them was excellent too. Big thumbs up from me!More

This small gem is tucked away amongst the shops of Parnell, and could be easily missed as just another cafe... But it is worth the stop! The food is delicious, hot and fairly priced. Staff are polite, warm and happy to help! Stopped in for...brunch and got the pancakes... Yum! They were light and fluffy and everything a good pancake should be. My companion had the big breakfast and through sharing our goodies agreed that both meals were worth it! We both walked away very full but very satisfied! Definitely will be back for more!!!More

We dropped in for a light lunch. The salads were really good. Better than we expected. Prawns and squid worth trying as was the Greek salad.

We walked from The Pullman Hotel to this cafe. Took us about 15 minutes in total. Very cute little cafe with a nice seating area outside that we sat in. Good service and yummy food. Nice way to top off our Auckland trip. 😊

Eggs Benny is great here and really good quick service, fantastic coffee and price is very reasonable. We eat here regularly and are never disappointed. It helps that it is Allpress coffee of course.

We had lunch here yesterday, we had the risotto and a glass of house sav for $18 and also the sweet corn fritters with bacon, the fritters had a bit of heat to them but were tasty. Lake Challis Chardonnay $9 a glass. We sat...outside on the pavement in a small blocked off courtyard. Nice for a quick lunch.More

We were shopping and enjoying a stroll along when we happened to come across this bistro. I must admit we chose it because it looked clean and inviting. It's quite unassuming and we were not to sure what to order but we were happily surprised....There were regulars in there which is always a good sign and tourists like ourselves. The staff were friendly and the service was good. The food was delicious. Would definitely recommend this bistro.More

Walked up the Parnell Rise (reasonably steep if you are walking from center city!) and spotted this along Parnell Rd. Really enjoyed the cajun chicken and the ceasar chicken salad (served with a perfectly cooked egg on top). Very nice staff. In the US, this...would be considered a neighborhood gem.More

We were strolling down Parnell rd, and randomly selected this cafe for our weekly brunch, we thought any cafe in this area shall be good enough, but we were really disappointed. The salmon and scrambled egg was so plain, there was no flavour apart from...the salt. Highly unlikely we will be back again. Pity..More
