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.

Ordered coffees and food, then asked for the toilet. Guy gave directions to toilets off premises that were locked. Ran back and was told to go in the first door which is supposed to be for public use. Ran back and tried it. It was...vacant but was locked. Ran back to cafe again, jiggling. Told to go to train station. Ran down and asked some random people where to go for the toilets. Found another man looking for the toilets too who said the train station was locked. We both went into another cafe close by who had no toilets either. Tried not to wet my pants. Thankfully saw the McDonald’s sign and we both went in a used their toilets. By the time I got back to the cafe, my family and friends were finished their food and drinks and my latte was cold. May have been nicer hot, but wouldn’t like to dine in to a place without a toilet facility again. :(More

Really good you can park right outside and also good not to be on the main road. The coffee was lovely and would have given an excellent rating had it been hotter. Maybe because they served the flat whites in a glass they didn't make...them hot in case we burned our fingers?More

What a gem in an industrial area. Yummy healthy smoothies, good selection of food and 5-star coffee.

While I don’t know how good the coffee on the Main Street is - many looked average. I do know how the coffee here is. It is as good as it gets pretty much. Make it your Parnell coffee spot. :)

Consistently very good coffee. We have tried a lot of coffee in various locations around Parnell in the last few months and this is the best. It’s tucked away on a wee street behind Parnell Rd so you have to know it’s there, but well...worth the effort to find it.More

This is really a hidden gem of coffee lover. I found by chance after parking the car at Britomart. Just wanna try and really love it. After that, I have to buy it everyday during my holiday there.

I am a regular here and I keep going back from a reason. The coffee is absolutely stunning and all the staff are very friendly. I am a passionate barista myself it is apparently clear that the baristas here really care about their coffee. I...like it so much I buy my beans for home from here. This is the only one of my regular coffee stops that has never failed to deliver. The staff are also very knowledgeable and are happy to answer any questions. I recommend this place to anyone wanting a proper coffee.More

The only reason why it’s not 5 Star is about the location just away from the harbour. The coffee is great and the barista skills are pretty good. It’s worth trying the cappuccino. It’s 5 NZ$. Not cheap but worthy.

We only stopped here once for morning coffee, but it was superb. Most places nearby seemed to know how to make coffee, but this was easily the best of the lot - a superbly made latte, at the right temperature and served quickly.

Our go-to cafe when visiting cbd. Professional, polite staff. Good roast which is not overdone. Great donuts (actual proper british style jam donuts!). A lot to choose from in this part of Auckland but we always come here before the madness of having to do...the cbd or if visiting event on the harbour. Close to britomart and Downtown car parks if you want cheapish safe and close weekend parking.More

Great Coffee always - make sure you have Norie make your coffee for you. Always friendly service and eco friendly, take your own coffee cup and receive a discount. The team is efficient and its a great sign that a lot of the staff have...been there off and on for several years.More
