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.

Food underwhelming and expensive. Staff member sweeping the floor at lunchtime. Dust everywhere. Note to staff. Smile at the counter when your serving. Also toss a salad in a prep bowl before placing in a eat bowl. Our salad looked prepped by a preschool child....My daughter has been vomiting since eating here. Won't be back.More

Young lady at counter very helpful and friendly. I ordered a chicken / mushroom toasted sandwich (added tomato and swapped caramelized onion for relish). Moved tables as overhead light flickered. Tea came in two mini metal jugs (tea + hot water). Nice but not great....Toasted sandwich was huge and came with sharp knife/fork. Lots of good quality cheese/mushroom/chicken/tomato... very full. Because of that I'd have to say it was worth the high price. Would have been perfect if it was hot, ingredients was cooked properly but was just warm. Very busy place. Noise level quiet enough for me to read comfortably.More

Robert Harris Pukekohe was a lovely place to stop and have lunch. The sandwiches are so nice and fresh, I recommend the chicken and cranberry. We also tried the chicken fritters which were very tasty. The fruit muffins and date scones were perfection.We would certainly...go there again and recommend it to our friends.More

Met a friend for coffee or two on a Sunday morning. I was surprised to see this cafe was open, and there was plenty of tables. Asked the staff member to take a photo and they were happy to oblige. Enjoyed my visit. Will stop...here again.More

Lunchtime and little food choices in cabinet food. Sandwiches left a lot to be desired. Will not be going back. Far to expensive for what we bought. Service slow.

The barista was friendly and they had a plethora of menu options to choose from. I ordered a plain soy cappuccino to go. It was piping hot (just the way I like it). Had I wanted to stay, there was plenty of seating. Prices were...about average for a nice coffee shop.More

A Robert Harris Cafe usually does good coffee. That is what they are about so nothing strange or startling to report here. We get that NZers like to drink good coffee and so do we. However, if there are tea drinkers in your party beware...that you will get a teapot with just a tea bag in it, not leaf tea as you might expect in a place like this. That was a disappointment. As for the cakes there was a reasonable selection and there was also a good selection of what might be called lunch items on display. However, I was disappointed that the selection of individual savoury items (because not everyone has a sweet tooth) was very poor considering that we were there shortly after 1000hrs. By the time we left the individual savoury items such as the small pies and sausage roll equivalents were all gone with no sign of anything being brought in from the kitchen to replace them. The coffee was good but attention to detail is required.More

This is an easy pit-stop when you are running around Pukekohe, and need a coffee to refresh you. Nice place to relax for a newspaper or magazine read too, with a small cake etc.
