Chose this place at random on a visit to Auckland. Service was very friendly and the burgers were really nice, chip as extra are really generous so would recommend sharing. The downside was the odd smell on entry, not a lovely food smell as expected....More

Popped in here for breakfast on our weekend in Auckland. A very atmospheric street and a very good breakfast. Everything we ordered was hot, nicely presented and very tasty. Decent value for money.
