If you're walking through Auckland's CBD, there are worse places you could stop of to have a sandwich and a cup of coffee while the (limited) free wifi enables you to catch up on e-mail. You can sit on the terrace where heaters cast a warm comforting glow while you nibble at the limited but delicious menu of sandwiches, quiche and salads washed down with an outstanding kiwi beer or wine and the sparrows fearlessly hop on your table waiting for a morsel to snatch up and fly away with. You ca do this and people watch the passing pedestrians on the square opposite the terrace

A lovely spring evening sitting on the terrace. Very pleasant. Ordered a pizza ( there was only a choice of two!! ). It was burnt so unable to eat all of it. This is a premium site and why can't they get that right. Such a waste of such a good location.

We had a light dinner here on two occasions while staying at the Rendezvous Hotel. Prices are reasonable for both the food and the drinks. While the selection is small, I thoroughly enjoyed the vegetarian items, such as the roasted vegetables. They may want to improve heating the items they serve, however. I liked the peaceful atmosphere and enjoyed the sunshine in Auckland from this cafe/bar. It wasn't clear regarding their hours or how late they served. Suggest they clarify their hours of operation.

This bar is located just outside the Aotea center in Auckland. It looks over the fairground/ice rink area and has a great atmosphere between 5-7pm when people are stopping in for post-work drinks. The wine I had was $9 per glass, it was very nice and the outside area has well set up heaters. The staff are friendly and efficient and best of all there is free WiFi for Customers!
