Popped in for a cuppa with miss 6 & mr 5 during school holidays. Crisp sunny winters day. Ordered Flatwhite $4.00, white chocolate & cranberry slice $4.50 and 2 free fluffies.
Apparently fluffies a free here, and standard sml fw is 2 shots. Very nice coffee, colouring for kids & a play area for small kids. Slice was very tasty and came with cream or yoghurt. Charming staff.
We needed a break from the weather - this was the perfect stop on our walk (and they were completely ok with children eating from there lunch boxes - thanks)

We've been a couple of times but lately the food isn't up to its usually standard. The café is cold and draughty which was obvious given the wall heaters were switch off and a fireplace with little heat coming out of it. We asked one of the staff to turn on the heaters and she ignored us twice. Overall a disappointing experience so we decided to not go back.

It was Mothers Day, packed and busy but we received great service and awesome tasting food. For a group of 12, they did extremely well, highly recommend this place especially as a break from the busy mall :)

Food is alright but definitely not worth the amount it costs for it.

We went there on Easter Sunday for a morning coffee. The deal was a coffee and a muffin or scone for $6. The scones were huge! Fantastic value. Not only that there is no surcharge on a public holiday. To top it all off the staff walked around offering all their customers an Easter egg. The staff were all so smiling and friendly and the place had a warm, cosy feel to it. I can't wait to go back there! by far the best café I have been to in a long time.

Really disappointed, friend and I went for breakfast. We ordered our breakfast and coffee. First breakfast came, waited for the second breakfast to arrive. Ten minutes later ask the waitress how far away it was. She said oh I forgot to order it. I said to her just to get me a coffee and don't worry about breakfast. Waited ten minutes and I had to ask another waitress, it appeared that my coffee had not been ordered. What a disappointment!!! It appears the service has gone down hill. Would not recommend any more, staff are too busy talking about their weekend and not serving customers!!!!

Have been here twice now, the first time was fine but after our second experience will not be returning. We walked in the door and the place wasn't full from what we could see downstairs but there were hardly any staff around. We seated ourselves only to be ignored by all staff. Walked up to the counter to collect our own menus. Then it just went down hill from there. Staff were all around us cleaning tables and standing round but we were still ignored even after looking around at the staff. We then had to ask someone if they could please take our order and get us some drinks and water. Ordered our food to only continually be ignored. Forty minutes passed and food hadn't arrived. Asked a waiter to check he said 2 minutes away. Waited another 20 still no food. Finally someone came and told us there was a big party upstairs and food was on it's way. Finally came and my partners food was drowned in mince and my omelette had more egg than topping was not pleasant. One staff member attempted to
Redeem the terrible time by bringing us a smoothie on the house but by now we were unimpressed and felt like if the staff had come and said that there was a wait on the food and hadn't ignored us to start with we would of been more understanding. Instead we have told family who quite enjoyed going there about our experience and it's safe to say they will not be coming back.

I've seen this place be a lot of things over the years - always really average bars, etc but for valentines day my darling took me there for breakfast and it was really good. I had French toast and my boyfriend had.. A big breakfast or something - both were really good sizes and great waitresses, esp because I'm a picky person. I have been recommending this place to people and will defiantly be going again!

I always go here for breakfast before going to Dressmart which is just down the road. They have the yummiest portobello mushrooms and the spicy chorizo on toast. Coffee was great. Open space atmosphere with plenty of seating.

This is the first review I have ever given on this site as I believe Jeff and his team deserve a mention - I have been visiting these guys for awhile now - genuine service, the best flat whites in Onehunga (the Velo blend is excellent..), light and airy aesthetic and the "1 %'s" like bringing water to your table keeps me coming back. Keep up the good work guys!

Bean there cafe is my new favourite!
This is the first time using this menu mania, but I felt it was very necessary to write a review, because I'm so pleased with the service, food, and coffee!
I thought I'd try the bubble and squeak, from the all day menu, it was divine. I also ordered a flat white, and was one of the nicest I've had in a long time!
I can't wait to come back and try something else off the menu! Everything looks so yummy. Good stuff to all the staff, you have one very happy customer :D

I've never actually eaten the food but the coffee is amazing, and the service is very friendly! Just put a sidewalk sign out so we can tell when you are open when driving past so I remember to stop more often!

We had the most horrible breakfast you could imagine.
The chef cannot even cook eggs.
We were very disappointed and had to return our plates back to be cooked again and at the end it didn't come out of kitchen the way we wanted.
Feedback given to them and all they said is sorry but we ain't going back

Amazing cafe! Went for brunch with family and we all absolutely loved our meals! In-laws thought the eggs benedict they all had was perfect and the best they had ever had!
I had the blueberry pancakes, (which they now can make gluten free - yay!!!) and they were absolutely devine - the best pancakes I have ever had!
Great friendly and attentive service as well!!

Came here this morning to try it out as it s the closest cafe to my home. Venue is light , airy and spacious, and is also extremely popular for people with children. The food cabinet had a selection of reasonably priced and yummy looking sweet slices, plus the usual panini and quiche selections. The breakfast menu seemed a bit basic and I just ordered the eggs on toast. I was a bit disappointed when it arrived as the toast was 3 half slices of ordinary sliced package bread. Staff are friendly and attentive, but I don't think I would make it one of my regular places to eat.

This has become a regular lunch spot for us. The food is great and the service is second to none. Pricing good also. Highly recommend this as a place to have the best coffee around, the best food and be treated as special by all of the staff.

If you want a great coffee and good home cooked food this is where you need to go. The atmosphere along with the staff are just fantastic and even customers are very friendly towards each other. You have a great choice of food from hot to cold. I love my coffee and have to say that this was one of the best coffees I have ever had.
Well done to you all for making my experience worth talking about.
