Great bagels at a decent price. Friendly staff and a classic retro dining area out front. Has a genuine non-touristy feel, what you want as a tourist!

Stopped here for lunch before a wedding over at the duke. Was most impressed with the selection on offer & the taste of the product. They're made as you wait so are always fresh. I'd love to try the entire menu. I'll be back one day Russell!

Called for a coffee and bagel what a surprise from the street looks a bit run down but the food and coffee are great

Tidy up the place a bit and you will attract more custom

The coffee is from a local roastery and tastes very good. However, they serve all coffe in to-go cups, even if you tell them that you'll sit down at the cafe.
Didn't try the food, bit bagels looked pretty small for NZD 10. On the other side they are freshly prepared and did look delicious.
It seems to be a local favorite. Many people came by to pick up their morning coffee while we were there.
