We had a marvellous experience here. Oh so tasty lunch accompanied by excellent coffee, and service to match. All three of us ladies are experienced 'cafe committee' members and have been to many around the country, but this would have to be on of the best, and ticked all our boxes.

Popped in on the off chance they had a table for brunch and was blown away by the service, coffee, food and prices! Will definitely be returning on our next holiday in Auckland. Highly recommend

Could not recommend more. At a time in Auckland where Saturday and Sunday brunch is an absolute nightmare to find somewhere that can even seat you let alone care about you and have amazing food aswel it's so lucky that we found a place like this. Coffee is fantastic and they draw little pictures in the foam which is just... More

We stop in here most weeks after training in the morning and the guy who makes the coffee is unreal! I'm not a big coffee snob but this place is top notch! Always have a small breakie also and very tasty, well presented and reasonably priced. Friendly staff and a cool little cafe atmosphere. Pretty small though so could do... More

This is our favourite local café by far! The food is always interesting and delicious. There are daily changes to the omelette or tart and daily fish menu for dinner. Having had breakfast here several times we decided to try dinner instead last week. We were delighted with our meals of pork belly and fish of the day. They have... More

Great to have such a cool little bistro in the neighbourhood serving great coffee, arguably the best brioche and croque madam in Auckland. It's a buzzy, light and artsy atmosphere and a 'go to' place for brunch anytime we're in this part of Auckland.

Coffee is really good here - one of the best in Auckland. And they really put in a lot of effort into barista art. The omelet I had was also very delicious. All this paired with a great vibe and decor.

Have always anticipated going to this Café one morning for breakfast but does not open until 7am. Today was different – a later start with a business breakfast and pleased I was able to try this eye-catching Café. There are regulars and plenty of them. Clean, well decorated and great atmosphere and surroundings being very French. Arriving early means you... More

This was probably one of the best coffee shops we visited in Auckland. We were warmly welcomed and were recommended some of their specials. However, we were there mainly for the coffee and it was excellent. An added feature was the barista drawing cartoon characters in the coffee.
