I really like this place because of the atmosphere and location.
So I have been back a number of times. Each time I am disappointed with the food. I have tried two pies as they look great in the cabinet and inviting. The first time, one was cold-ish in the middle and lack taste. On another visit I again ordered a pie and this time it was burn’t and the filling bland.
The service is also rather slow.
I might give it another in time.
I agree with previous review. This place is sub standard. Cabinet food looks nice but we ordered off the menu.
The haloumi was sliced wafer thin and overlooked. Very very small portion for the price!
The kedgeree was a joke . About 100ml for $17 dollars.
They can’t seriously expect people to come back for the food!
I don’t believe there was a chef in this kitchen.
Nice atmosphere though.
Wow, very very disappointed with this place. Miserable Sunday morning, in dire need of good coffee and great food – alas, none was found. Guys, if you cant even cook bacon that its burnt to a cinder, then leave it off the menu…my basic Eggs/ Bacon/ tomato were probably the worst I have come across for the money paid. Stay away from the very small plates and give me value for money, at $33.00 for two coffees and a very small portion of food, I am bitter. I asked for the bacon to be cooked again – whats worst is that it came out on a plate, sooo frig-gen small I could not eat it and then again the bacon was burnt. Get it together guys, its just not that difficult to get the basics right and stay clear of trying to be too fancy.
A visitor to Auckland, and I went looking for this cafe – cant remember how I heard of it. But I am very glad I found it!
It is set within a larger development of very funky shops – sort of open plan. Very well decked out and a pleasure to sit in.
Food ticked all the boxes, and was refreshingly different, whilst catering for ones usual wants!! Lovely menu and cabinet food.
Staff really engaged with us and were helpful and friendly. Great work.
Can’t recommend this place enough. We’ll be back when next in Auckland.
Went today and it was deservedly packed, banh mi and halloumi toast were both delicious plus there was a whole range of sweet treats in jars on the counter I can’t wait to try on later visits! I hope this place does well!
