I came here on Easter Monday morning for a mini get-together with a few people. From the outside, you could see the place overflowing with people. This meant two things. Either this cafe was amazing or this cafe is the only place to go to. Unfortunately, this place was not Noah's Ark nor did it meet the mark when it... More

If you are going for a walk along the beach, pop in here first and get a takeaway coffee, sweet and/or ice cream. So worth it. The coffee is hot and strong. The sweets and savouries are yummy and the ice creams are lovely. Makes that walk along the beach so much nicer.

A coffee and a catchup with a friend before work. Was staying maybe 60m up the road so this was the obvious choice. I ordered an Americano. Super smooth coffee well made. A perfect start to the day. The sparking water constantly being topped up at the table was also a nice touch. I opted not to eat as the... More

What stands out at this cafe is the service. Lovely young obliging staff who have a bottle of sparkling water and glasses on the table almost before you sit down. The food is good too but I was disappointed to find the menu which wasn't extensive hadn't changed from my last visit a few weeks back. If you go in... More

This cafe keeps on being excellent, great food, great service and a sunrise over Rangitoto. What more can you ask for. Try their freshly squeezed juices they are delicious my preference pear and ginger. Always delivered with a smile. Definitely the place to go for breakfast in Takapuna.
