This place is a pleasure to visit, it is a wonderful local cafe. The coffees are superb and consistent, and I have tried a fair few !!. The food is wonderfully fresh with even the bread cooked on the premises.

I have to make a special mention about the pies, which are great to take home for a later indulgence.

I visited The Food Vault when passing through Kumeu recently. It's a very pleasant small cafe to stop for a coffee or brunch. There is plenty of space around the different sized tables and chairs.

I ordered a bagel with a side of bacon and a short black. This was served quickly and was good value. The coffee was excellent, the bacon tasty and the bagel, light. It was accompanied by a small serving of hollandaise sauce.

The counter food looked very inviting, too, with a range of freshly baked/prepared sweet and savoury items. I would definitely visit again.

Afte an extended stay in the UK we were realy into some decent NZ coffee and this cafe delivered. Spent a week in the area and visited every day for our fix. Excellent coffee, very good cafe style food, a laid back atmosphere with friendly staff who made us feel welcomed. It has an nice looking outdoor area which would be great come summer.

Three of us met in Kumeu for coffee and conversation. The Food Vault is a spacious eclectic space with a variety of table groupings. We chose the deep comfy couch and armchair in the corner. The service was prompt and friendly, the coffee and my eggs bene (on a stunning hash) were great and the cafe had a steady stream of patrons while we chatted and sipped an hour or two away. Perfect spot on a wet Monday in Kumeu. The bathroom (accessed via a rather bland laundry) was clean (terribly important and often neglected even in the best cafes) and the basic room has been lifted to interesting by adding boards to a wall and boxing in the old stainless steel sink. Real hand towels a nice touch too.

Food and coffee is great, ambiance lacking a bit, outdoors will only be pleasant in the heat of summer.
