We had lunch at Manuka and enjoyed our meal. I've forgotten what we ordered, but we were pleased with our meals.

Too bad about the service. The setting is nice as you can sit out on the sidewalk. Great people watching spot. Food was good. I had the shrimp and my wife had a burger. Service throughout was spotty at best. The issue came when we were ready to pay the bill. We asked our waitress for the bill and she... More

We didn’t know where to get a drink in Devonport, there are so many little quirky cafes, but we eventually decided on Manuka and I’m so glad we did. What a wonderful place. From the moment we arrived we felt like truly valued customers. The lady that served us was super friendly and seemed genuinely happy to see us. I... More

After flying into Auckland at 5am and spending a wet day in Auckland, we returned to Devonport where we decided to have an early dinner at 5pm. After walking the main street of Devonport in the rain, we settled on Manuka. From the moment we walked in, the staff were attentive but not pushy. I queried Bryan (who I believe... More

We went to Manuka for dinner and to enjoy the local arts festival afterward. The service was friendly, but patchy as the staff were busy with the restaurant patrons, and doing takeaway coffee for people going to the festival. Between the noise of the blender going, kids colouring, and the line-up for coffee stretching into the table area it was... More

We were served by a really happy Maori waiter who was totally invested in delivering top notch service. He also did an awesome Maori design on my husband's latte. This cafe has inside and street-side dining, with a view of the park across the road. I had the chicken salad special which was divine, and my husband had the steak... More
