I had a couple of light meals here and bought their muffins to have for supper. The muffins are fresh and I think they are made on site. The service was good and you don't have to wait long. Food was really good.

I often do business close to Auckland Airport and often have breakfast or coffee here. The food is always nice. Quite basic but a good variety.

The coffee was good and the muffin was superb. Freshly made and delicious! We were trying to have a chat among business friends and the staff behind the counter kept banging and crashing plates and pans, so it was rather noisy! Not a bad place to grab a coffee, but perhaps takeaway would be a better choice next time.

I think the location of this place is they key to it's busy atmosphere. Food wasn't that great, but it wasn't gross. Coffee was fast, though. Like almost everywhere, the coffee flavorings didn't include any sugar-free options. Food was alright, but very expensive, like a lot of places in Auckland. There are other places in the area that are better.... More

We stopped by after landing for breakfast and regretted we did not find somewhere else. The service is slow, and our takeaway became cold after waiting 40 mins for our main breakfast to arrive. Coffee was so-so; the eggs Benedict was the worst I ever had- soggy; re-cooked bacon that has burnt hard edges; and lacks taste except for an... More

I went to this cafe for breakfast before an early morning meeting. The food was very good and priced reasonably. News station was on TV, with sound, which was nice for early risers looking to have a nice breakfast and catch up on the news. Friendly staff too.

This place is fairly bad. Dirty tables. Average coffee. Sloppy food. Poor service. I recommend you only go here if you are desperate.

We visited for breakfast on a Saturday at around 9.30am. The customer service needs to be reviewed with more front line staff to take orders and clear tables and a dedicated barissta at this time of the day. There was 1 person doing these 3 roles which meant we got our coffee after being served our meal. When it got... More

This is a basic NZ-style cafe featuring all the usual pies, sausage rolls, doughnuts etc. The also do cooked breakfasts and other snacks. Prices are very competitive. When they are busy, they can be a bit slow cleaning up tables, but overall the place is very clean and tidy. A good place for a snack or light meal without paying... More

We stopped in after noon and were pleased that we could order from the breakfast menu all day. Acorn Cafe is open 7:30 a.m.-5:00 p.m. You order at the counter, and your food is brought to your table when it's ready. The basic egg on toast breakfast is very reasonable @ $7.90, but be aware that they bring you margarine... More
