We call in here from time to time for a lunch time coffee and snack and have been remiss in writing a review. Headed up by the charming and engaging Andre and wife Shelley ( the boss if the truth were known, haha) this is a great café just off the main drag of Ponsonby / Jervois Roads. Great coffee and eats. The Caesar salad and Thai curries are particularly good. Doggy friendly.

We love going to Blake St Cafe for breakfast. The food & service are superb! Had the creamy mushrooms with pork sausages & eggs. The mushrooms were so creamy & delicious. Pork sausages were so meaty & full of flavour. Couldn't fault it. My wife had the bubble & squeak with she said it was lovely & best she has ever had. Place is a bit hidden away but well worth a visit. A wee gem of a place.

Sometimes the good places are hard to find. But well worth the effort. This is the case with Blake Street Cafe. We had trudged around in the rain and this cafe was a sight for sore eyes. A late lunch was needed and served with pleasure at this cafe. I had a wonderful cauliflower soup. The coffee was excellent. Very good shops nearby as well.

We travel to Auckland regularly from Sydney to visit family and ensure we eat at Blake Street Cafeevery time. We are locals in Sydney's cafe and restaurant capital, Newtown, and the menu and service here rival anything you can get there.

Shelley and Andre are great hosts, they are friendly, professional and knowledgeable not just of their own menu, but the region.

The food is fresh and always interesting and a boozy lunch here is something I always look forward to... their pulled pork burgers specials come in both standard and steamed bun formats and we had both on our last visit. combining these with some of their Spy Valley Rose or great coffee is something to tell your mates about.

Go there!
