I really like Benediction cafe – they do the BEST Eggs Benedict in Auckland. Good service and friendly staff. Highly rate them for tasty meals.
Pro: Small sweet bites (tiny slices)
Cons: Taste of coffee, only open till 2:30, overpriced soy…
Unfortunately there are too many cons for it to be a great café.
I had a flat white – which didn’t convince me as the froth on it was very bitter and the coffee taste too overwhelming. I find $1 way too much for soy milk. I liked the small sweet treats which they offered – taste of mine was ok.
It was good to see organic phoenix products and their emphasis on the menu that they use free range eggs. So if they offer organic local fizzy drinks, why do they also need Coca-Cola and Bundaberg? It also would have been good to know if the coffee is organic and fair-trade. I just saw that they use Allpress.
I’ve become a big fan of keepcups and would have liked to see them being sold here, rather than always giving out disposable cups. Even a person consuming her coffee in the café had a throw-away cup in front of her.
I personally also go to cafés in the afternoon – even after 4 or 5pm. Closing at 2:30 is way too early.
It’s an interesting setting and allows space to do some work, but isn’t very cozy and inviting. If you do decide to go there to do some work on your PC, make sure you won’t run out of power as there are no sockets.
Consistently bad. Boring menu. Orders are ALWAYs forgotten. We once ordered a meal….only to wait 45minutes for it to arrive (after asking where it was) THEN to be told they actually had run out and would we like to order anything else.
Coffee is not good at all and regardless of the fact we live really close by we choose to walk a bit further away to buy it elsewhere.
I really wish they were better.
I ordered a spinach eggs benedict ($15.50) and a cappuccino ($4.00) for brunch however the meal and service was disappointing. The spinach eggs benedict seemed like they were made by an amateur chef, in tiny servings with very dry slices of bagel, over-cooked eggs and bad quality spinach that were very hard to chew. Plus they have forgotten about my coffee.
When we first moved to Auckland, we ate here pretty frequently. The breakfasts are decent. However, the last two times we have eaten here, they have “lost” our order. They are clearly unorganized, and have a “so-what” attitude about losing our orders. We were offered a free coffee, even though each time took over an hour to get out food.
