We just dropped in for late lunch, everyone was amazingly well cooked and served...and pretty fast too. I probably had the best monkfish I have ever eaten. staff were delightful and helpful. Yes must do.

Pretty average food for the high rating this gets on trip advisor. My poached eggs were not runny which is the most important thing for me!! The toast was under toasted and more like bread. Would have been nice to have had some free range and gluten free options. Nice outdoor seating but the food was pretty poor.

As the title suggests.... great pizza. A well planned dinner stop once the sun gets too low across the road at The Patriot and the sun umbrellas cease to do their task...

The food was ok and, while we are not big eaters the portion size was even small by our standards. The food offered was classed as a "Main" when it patently was not. One of these was a Snapper fillet meal when all that was served was 3 small pieces of fillet in among a small Greek salad. We travel... More

It was my first day in Auckland/Devonport, my first day in New Zealand, and a perfect lunch to start off the trip. The cafe is located on a pretty shopping street. I enjoyed sitting outside in the warm summer sun - the amount of traffic was not at all a detraction - it was mellow, with an upscale-casual atmosphere. The... More
