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.

This place is very special, and I keep returning for their excellent pies even though I have to travel a long way by foot. Being vegetarian, it's sometimes hard to find a good veggie pie but here, they have several options. Friendly staff and hygienic,...it's the highlight of my day! Sometimes I get a coffee too!More

I bought a sandwich, pie, and sweet pastry. Sandwich: too much butter, bread is way too chewy, and salads were wilted and turned color. Pie: not flakey and inside was lukewarm sweet pastry: again, not flakey and too sweet Also, the place is not clean...as I hope to be and the staff used tongs to pick up items but used bare hands to nudge...More

My partner eats a whole food/plant based diet, so I suggested we find a vegan café in Grey Lynn, to better cater to his tastes, instead of a "normal" café that would be aimed at my tastes. Mr Google pointed us to Tart Barkery. It...was our lucky day. What an amazing selection. For someone such as myself, used to eating the usual café fare, it was a real suprise to find a café that sold food that looked, and tasted, as good, if not better, than that which we are served in a "normal" café . I even had a flat white with oat milk. Not the same as my cow's milk, but I drank it and enjoyed it. Highly recommend this place. Give it a try!!More

The best vegan baked goods I have had. I was visiting from the UK and I sought out this bakery. So glad I did :-) Also amazing sandwiches, had vegan cheese and ham. Thank you, when ever I'm back I will 100% visit again.

Absolutely the best bakery, I always go here. Yum every time! Only downside is it can get really busy! Philippa is a legend, I remember back when the first vegan pie was available, I think it was spinach and "cheese" - really good! Now everything...is vegan and delicious! The Friday Night fry-ups were also epic as! Cheers guys.More

The visit over the bridge was a huge success . Our son is visiting and I had heard about a vegan bakery and so we ventured over there this morning . Wow what a lovely lot of fantastic baking . The food looked delicious and...so well presented . The service was excellent as well. He was so impressed with the flavour I think he enjoyed the spicy bean pie and the doughnut the best . But he enjoyed everything he purchased !! What a neat place . Beautiful food .More

If you are vegan, this is a MUST do in Aukland! The pies are flaky goodness. The “ham and cheese” sandwich was one of the best I’ve ever had- just make sure to get it warmed up! If I lived in Aukland, I would be...at Tart all the time!!! So delicious!!!More

I arrived close to closing time looking for a cake I could use as a last-minute birthday cake for a vegan colleague. They usually make their cakes to order, but recognising my plight, said "Oh sure, we'll make a donut tower! Give us 20 minutes."...Next thing I know, someone is running next door to buy white daisies to decorate it with (after much consultation to find the correct kind of flowers for the occasion) and before too long a box emerges with a delightfully iced and decorated donut concoction. I couldn't have asked for more at such short notice. Highly recommended.More

Tart Bakery is the vegan take on all the classic Kiwi bakery staples, savoury pies, sandwiches, berry tarts (raspberry is the best!) and even a cream donut! All vegan of course but you wouldn't even be able to tell. Like all good bakeries the earlier...you get in the better. Worth the visit.More
