Reviews for Fred’s

My all time favourite cafe in Auckland! Love the bircher muesli, unfortunately so much that I have never gotten anything else off the menu. Great coffee, staff is attentive and very welcoming! Plus wi-fi is very handy!

Fantastic menu for delicious wholesome food. My friend and I both had the ‘half avocado’, and tomatoes on whole-5-grain toast. There was a moment of indecision when we had spotted the haloumi salad, which looked delish too. But we made the right choice, as the avocado option was a very natural and super delicious – a fabulous start to the day. It’s hard to find such a healthy unadulterated breakfast, so we really loved it. There was a drizzle of oil in the pocket of the avocado – nice touch
Seating is in slightly bohemian style, with a stool for a seat rather than chairs… and a very cosy, quite tight space indoors – plus a big communal centre table for single diners. And 2 or 3 of the tables by the big lighted-filled window were catching all the lovely morning sun.
We we were in for some detailed conversation – so we opted for outdoors, where it was a bit more private today, and the wire stools were surprisingly comfy.
One point for improvement, would have to be that the decaf coffee was a little bitter. I know, I know, decaf – it’s not the real thing – but sometimes you just have to. And it is possible to get amazing decaf coffee which can make you wonder if it’s actually caffeinated… but I just think they need to hone their decaf skill here.
However the staff were chipper and helpful, and the overall atmosphere of Fred’s is really groovy and warm, and the menu is a stand-out, worth 5 stars.

The atmosphere and interior design is really what makes all the difference and what distinguishes Agnes Curran from any other cafe. I was only there once and had a slice of banana bread and a coffee – both very good. I was so glad that someone recommended it to me – otherwise I might not have stumbled across it.
Would be cool if it was open longer! I know I’m not the only one to go for a coffee after 4pm. That’s the ideal time for it on the weekend! And how about some organic items on the menu? With those two changes, it would deserve 5 stars!
