My grilled snapper was delicious. However, the service I got during a slow hour for late lunch was not convincing. Slow and hint of arrogance was my experience.

Great breakfast with really nice freshly squeezed juice! Perfect start to my day! Price is reasonable and you can get in and out quickly with a quality feed. A definite visit.

If you want a good coffee you cannot go past this cafe. The food is good, but it is expensive compared to other cafes. I had breakfast and it was expensive for scrambled eggs on toast with a side of bacon. But the service is efficient and the cafe was clean and had a great atmosphere. It appeared very popular...

We had decided to walk back to our hotel, and needed to stop for a refreshing drink! We sat outside, enjoyed delicious drinks, and watched the world go by! What more do you need on holiday!

Nothing to write home about, the bread they serve with breakfast is not very nice and our meals were childish when they arrived at our table. Still a decent feed but just an average one. Coffee was brilliant though

Popped in for a coffee and a crisp sandwich, got exactly what i expected and paid for. Lovely staff and a very friendly barista who knew his stuff. Great value and what service really means anywhere in the world. Really pleased and got my Sunday off to a great start. Thank you !

Really nice and relaxed way to start the day in Auckland. Breakfast was very tasty, all seemed fresh. They have a great selection of juices and shakes, tea comes in a very cute pot and cup set. Some interesting options like Corned Beef Hash Browns - pretty tasty.

Thank kris1138
