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.

I love this little coffee shop! It's down a little alleyway and got its own little indoor or outdoor seating area. Nice to have both! The coffee is great, and they have an excellent selection of baked goods for purchase as well.

I come here often for their coffee & matcha lattes. The staff is always friendly! I usually take my coffee to go but I love that they have their own coffee roaster so it is roasted in house. I usually buy the $20 sample pack...as it is great for making coffees at home and it is a great deal. They grind the coffee for you if you would like or you can take it away whole bean. Always appreciate the service!More

This little coffee roasters is tucked down a corridor that you wouldn’t normally look twice at. An old record shop and shoe repairers are down there too and its scruffy, dirty and dingy. The only reason we found it was because we’d been told by...friends where it was and that they had great coffee. They definitely could improve the entrance. Once you walk into the cafe it’s bright and clean, if a little cold. There is another entrance from a carpark at the back of some buildings. The coffee is good, they have some tea options and a small cabinet of food. Club sandwiches and biscuits were nice if a little pricey. Service was very good although not terribly friendly or chatty. Probably the best coffee on the shore though.More

Well worth searching this place out. It is not hard to find as there are plenty of people to follow, at least that’s how I stumbled into here. The coffee was great not much more to say.

Hidden away down a little alleyway in Takapuna, this little shop houses great staff, good customer service, and a wonderful place to sit down and have a cup of coffee. The blend of espresso served is, in my opinion, one of the better ones in...Auckland, and I cannot wait to go back and get some more.More

We frequently visit Ark coffee when we want only coffee and not necessarily something to eat. The service is always excellent and the coffee good. If you're looking for a fancy place, look somewhere else. However, if you're after a good (in my opinion) cup...of coffee, served with a friendly smile, then you cannot go wrong.More

A delightful little hideaway oozing coolness. I’m writing this as a batch of coffee is roasting in front of me. My coffee is sensational, subtle flavours and a welcome change from the mainstream blends. Very friendly staff. I bought a bag of beans to take...home and received a free coffee voucher. A lovely warm little business.More

Hidden little gem: especially great that they are open on Sunday. Great coffee! They roast their own coffee in house, makes all the difference. And the apple pie, OH MY WORD!!! AMAZING!!! If you didn't know it was here you would miss it, so look...for it, find it and love it!More

This is one of my favourite go-to coffee spots in Auckland. Nothing short of incredible coffee and service. I'll often buy a bag of beans for home brewing, and they give you a free in-house coffee! Cool atmosphere in the shop as well, with a...bunch of boutique coffee bits and pieces. Definitely worth checking out.More
