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.

Great cafe. I loved the ambiance, decor and cost feel at this cafe. Service was friendly and efficient. Tried different food from the cabinet for breakfast. They were fresh. I had the tumeric latte as well which went well with my order. Will come back.

This place has really gone down hill. My friend and I were both disappointed with our meals. The living wall of plants is now just full of dead plants. Will need to up their game before I would return!

"Honey Cafe" on mother's day …. On the days when cafes and restaurants are busiest, taste, quality and service have always been lower than expected. However, "Honey Jafe" left a positive impression on me. The young and dynamic staff was extraordinary despite the intensity of...taste and presentation. I would especially like to thank the kind, smiling and caring young staff. Hoping to meet again in the same beauties as soon as possible.More

Great place, the food is fantastic and the staff is very helpful. Tried twice in the past month and have had the creamy mushrooms on both occasions. The daughters had the Thai salad and the big breakfast. Service was quick and friendly, food was superb...with large portions. Will certainly be back.More

Eight of us there for a birthday lunch. I order eggs Benedict. They forgot my meal completely. Had to ask and then it came after everyone had eaten most of their meal. It was disgusting, two mashed potato blobs deep fried with bland hollandaise sauce....Asked waitress about meal as potato did not look right of even same as some other meals had come out. Told it was how they did the potatoes, it was not nice. Hollandaise sauce was bland. I complained again even paying about the forgotten meal and that it was disgusting. I was told sorry. I asked for a discount during to poor service and disgusting food and told as I had eaten some of it no discount. Terrible food, noisy , terrible service.More

The food was so good! I ordered French toast with Iced Latte. The service was great but only had to wait 30 mins for the food. Other than that its good!

My son and I found this place by chance so stopped in for breakfast. Decor is casual and relaxed and service was prompt and courteous without feeling intrusive. Despite lousy weather outside place was busy with couples and families. Enjoyed coffee and eggs benny very...much. Will definitely go again 👍More

I have been here x2 prior to COVID and found service and food great. Service is still good but food sadly not. I had scrambled egg on sour dough with side of bacon. The size of scrambled egg portion was very small and toasted sour...dough bread soo hard I couldn’t eat it - certainly teeth breaking material. Thankfully I ordered the side of bacon otherwise I would have been very hungry!! Floor looked quite dirty in need of a good mop/clean!! Sadly won’t be hurrying back. DisappointedMore

This place is always quite busy. The reason is that it does the best food and provides the best service in Takapuna. Great drinks. Coffee is always well barista’s. Awesome for families and very nice and pleasant staff.

We had brunch at Honey Cafe. The atmosphere was nice and it was very busy. The food was generous, beautiful both to look at and in taste. Awesome coffee too which is always important. I would highly recommend.

Great little find, tucked away under an office block, the service was swift and polite, food came quickly and tasted great, I had the big breki which was great. I would recommend this place if you’re in the area.

We enjoy this cafe especially as it’s easy to bring our two small dogs and sit at the front. There’s a good comprehensive cafe menu and cabinet options also, and the coffee is reliably good. (Friends from out of town said the eggs Benedict was...wonderful, on an earlier visit.)More
