Produce, groceries coffee and food under the same roof!? Well ok, pretty common these days but at the end of the day, these guys have got it RIGHT! The food is prepared by what appear to be professional chefs! I was particularly hungry so i had Eggs Benedict and Chicken Filo. Filled the gap nicely. Dined outside in the wee... More

I took my Auckland-based sister to lunch on her way to the airport to fly home. We ordered our food which all looked appetising but when I ordered English Breakfast Tea, the reply was "Sorry we are out of it" I could not believe my ears !!! We were offered all other types of tea which I do not like... More

I go here often, usually around 10.30am as I crave for their yoghurt & rhubarb & lemon curd & granola breakfast. It's served in a takeaway type see through container & in layers...A tall container if yumminess. $6.50.. The cabinet food is also fresh & well priced. Always busy....Kids playground. ..Worth a visit, not only for the food, but you... More

This is the perfect place to spend on a wet Sunday afternoon enjoying a leisurely cup of beautifully served coffee. Although I haven't eaten here yet, there is certainly good variety of food and I'm sure many people are tempted by what's on offer. I have always found the service to be of a high standard as well as friendly... More

This cafe is clearly popular with the locals, lots of business people and others dropping in for a coffee and a croissant. The takeaway food looks top drawer. We had breakfast: nice fresh orange juice, great bacon but tie but the pancakes were a bit over-sweet with lemon curd, maple syrup, peanut brittle and cream on top of 3 pancakes:... More

There is always a good selection of food, best get here early though as their cabinets get pretty low over the lunch time! The staff are awesome, happy and smiley! The food is great, not too badly priced which is good. The area is good for big groups but it pays to book as this is a very popular place.... More
