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.

This place is always consistent with good service by the staff, great coffee and good quality food. Nice surroundings with time to read the papers.

Wife and I were overdue for breakfast and grabbed a smoked chicken sandwich and the BLT to go, to eat in the square. Both of us raved - the sandwiches were simple, but 'done up' (smoked chicken with deliciously sweet carmelized onions, the BLT with...savory sun-dried tomatoes). Tasty, quick, and at a reasonable cost!More

Outstanding, delicious breakfast with interesting takes (to this American) on some standard items, like granola and avocado toast. We were only in Auckland for 4 days - that’s 4 breakfasts we wish we had eaten at The Store, but we only managed to eat there...twice (much longer story as to why). Best avocado toast I’ve ever had. The restaurant is right across from the Hotel Britomart and its outdoor seating provided a wonderful, relaxed ambiance (it was summer). The waitstaff was helpful, and the prices were reasonable (good value for a high quality meal).More

Chose this restaurant due to high scoring reviews. Love outdoor garden setting but unsure what they do when raining as most seating is outside. Friendly service and lovely food. Very few cabinet/small offerings so expect to buy a meal off the menu

Busy and busy for good reason. The quality of food and service is very good. Prices are reasonable and the environment is very pleasant. They don’t open in the evening so the menu is brunch oriented, which I like. If I lived here I would...come here a lot. The Shorthorn Burger was good, as was the XPA pale ale.More

This is an absolute awesome place to eat breakfast. The downtown area of Auckland is very windy and the tall buildings act as a wind tunnel but this restaurant is nestled nicely out of all that wind. The service is a bit slow but the...food comes out fast and is delicious, healthy, and refreshing! A must stop!More

Great friendly place with excellent food. Lovely for breakfast or lunch. Unfortunately they don’t do dinner or we would have been there for that too. In an area with a lot of choice but not all of it good, this is a standout place.

We stumbled upon this cafe, opposite our hotel in the Britomart area. The staff are warm, welcoming and helpful. The food is excellent and they do a mean cup of coffee. Highly recommended

Once seated outside we were very well looked after by the serving team. The space between the tables was great. The position of The Store is away from pedestrians and traffic so peaceful and quiet. We had brunch - the food was excellent and plentiful....Highly recommended.More

Every eatery has it's poor days, so I'm never a fan of giving bad reviews.... But the day we visited this place our coffee was cold and weak and our chocolate brownies were dry. Hopefully if you go you'll have better luck

the CBD has wifi, so connect into that, or use local telco (Spark) who have free wifi spots around the city.
