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.

On a mini holiday on Waiheke to celebrate hubby's birthday with friends. Lucky to find this little gem of a cafe open on Sunday. Beautifully presented food and very tasty.

We booked a table for 7 (with a baby girl) quite last min in the morning during the waitangi weekend and they managed to save us a big table. Food was great, good portion and staff were very all very nice there :)

Lovely little Café with a great take on healthy cuisine still packing a ton of flavor. Coffee is great. Service is friendly even at an Island pace (Stress doesn't belong on Waiheke!). Nutritious and tasty food. I went for both breakkie (Mediterranean eggs sub ciabatta...for Sourdough) and Lunch - a veggie wrap with side salad. Extra pus for the unpasteurized and raw kombucha! 5/5 for sure. Oh! Very instafriendly too.More

Soooo delicious Very small cafe but perfectly formed. Very friendly staff, table service which was a nice touch. Coffees were very good, coco berry smoothie was specially yummy. Then the food came out, such pretty looking food, Turkish eggs were sublime just about got the...finger out to get every last morsel off the plate. Smashed avo - sooo good, served with spicy cauliflower, pickled red cabbage and delicious sourdough bread. Go there as soon as you canMore

Cute cafe in the middle of Oneroa. Food was fresh & delicious and food came out SO quickly. Amazing service, will definitely be back. Such a treat to pay $2.50 for extra haloumi instead of $9 like Auckland....

The eatery was packed full of customers so I decided to get takeaway. The staff were the best part of the experience. The food was a tad bland but I was so happy to see the vegan options. I wish I could have dined in.

We were intrigued by the loook of the beautiful cafe, however one coffee arrived with curdled milk and we had to get up multiple times to ask for things such as sugar to have with the coffee (it wasn’t very busy). Seemed to be a...lack of communication between staff aswell. Food looked beautiful but slightly tasteless.More

Wow, this place as wow features for food, cleanliness and so welcoming. We went to this cafe three times in a row. It is Vegan and vegetarian and has the nicest of food. I am neither vegan or vegetarian but would choose to eat here....Breakfast through till late afternoon. You have to have a vegan muffin, you have never tasted better. The omelette and quiche made perfect brunch and coffee was perfect. We met the owner Chantelle and she sure has nailed it. Absolutely perfect.More

The flat whites were good enough to impress my Italian friend who has just moved to Auckland from London, her words "Buonisimo". Highly recommend for a dose of cultured caffeine!!
