Have visited this coffee shop a few times now. Coffee is always great, and the food, mains and cakes are really good. Service with a smile too, bonus. Go there if you're out around Mt Eden, you will not be disappointed.

I have come here several times... Each time NO nasty suprises. I had the worst orange juice in my life, though. It was bitter/sour, with bad after taste. I thought it was just mine so swapped with my partner, and yuck! We ended up putting 3 sugars in it, and it was still bad, We had to leave them..... Coffee... More

Under new management since October 2012 this wonderful breakfast & lunch cafe in a refurbished old wooden church is situated in the heart of Dominion Road virtually next to Merediths Restaurant, one of New Zealand's most exclusive and renown.
