I used to visit this place every now and then but got tired of rude staff. First I was thinking they just have a bad day or something, but they never even said "hi" or "thank you". I don't expect anything special, but those words are pretty important. Coffee was ok, but it's not easy to enjoy if I don't... More

We called in for breakfast before heading off to the airport and nearly had to leave before our food was ready, despite the cafe being almost empty. My wife chose the Kiwi breakfast and I had the paleo with gluten-free toast as I have the coeliac condition. Both breakfasts were very good, although my poached eggs were better cooked than... More

Great location at corner of Queen Street and K Road. Interior is clean and modern. Nice outdoor deck seating with umbrella coverings for good weather enjoyment. They have a wide ramp up to the front door. Coffee and food offerings are plentiful.

Popped in for some Eggs Benedict, which I accompanied with a trim flat white and white chocolate & raspberry muffin. All very tasty. Nice location. Friendly enough staff. Would go again.

If you're looking for some good pastries, go here. I got the rhubarb and apple tart and loved it. I never thought to eat a pastry with yogurt but it was honestly amazing! The blueberry crumble with white chocolate is also wicked good. They also have a good variety of smoothies to pick from. I'd recommend trying one. Everything is... More

A beautifully quaint coffee shop situated in the heart of Auckland. Even though they were very busy the service was excellent. The price was reasonable and the food was superb. I highly recommend visiting this coffee shop before you experience everything Auckland has to offer.

Good food at reasonable prices. Loose leaf tea in a pot us always appreciated over the old tea bag. Really enjoyed it

Had breakfast here. Enjoyed the granola clusters and a flat white. Handy spot for watching the traffic and people crossing the road at the Queen St/Karangahape Rd traffic lights. Efficient, friendly staff.

Also have bbq sauce, tomato sauce and A good chilli sauce... More

This place looked like a good coffee shop but as I was deciding what coffee to have I noticed little flies all over the cakes!!! I saw about 6 landing and flying over cakes that were in the cabinet...And the staff member didn't seem that bothered!! YUK!! Walked out and so did another customer! Sort your basic hygiene out!!!!

Thank J b
