Reviews for Auckland Art Gallery Cafe
4th April 2014
Called in here for a little lunch prior to viewing an exhibition and found the cafe did not live up to expectations. I had wanted a salad which looked very appealing in the counter display but was way too large so requested a half portion. Was told they did not do that so I had to select one of the savoury muffins instead which turned out to be quite tasty but not so good for the waistline! When pouring out my tea I discovered the cup rim had old food marks still on it so asked for a replacement. The waiter took away the teapot with the cup. I was then given a fresh pot of hot water only, accompanied by a single teabag on a saucer plus a clean cup. Someone needs to advise wait staff how to make tea! Not impressed.

Not sure if the chef has changed? The lunch meals used to be above average however today they were definitely average..we chose the kahawai cakes with coleslaw which was unremarkable – the fish cakes being far too heavy and gluggy. My partner chose the chicken with roast summer vegetables which was too vinegary and salty – a preponderance of capers – and lacked much substance. Both meals were $18. A note on the presentation – the blue crockery definitely should be replaced with the former white. On the plus side, the coffee is great, the glasses of wine generous, the service good and the pastry/sweet selection delectable.Comment from Alex R. of Auckland Art Gallery Cafe 28/01/2014

Woah – fine dining breakfast here.
It was my last day working on a big project and i needed a fine start to the day to get my motivation levels up.
They treated my like a king, they set one of the tables for me outside especially on request, had a beautiful view of albert park.
The eggs benny was so beautiful I took a photo.
Great coffee too.
I’ve been here a few times before and always had positive experiences.

I love the service here!!! The chocolate vegan cake is amazing. I came here for a birthday breakfast in March and they coped with all of our complicated and specific orders – they even gave me free extra bacon because it was my birthday! Always a treat to grab a coffee and delectable cake here.

Had a really nice lunch there, the cabinet food was exceptional. Best caramel slice I have ever had. The sandwiches are lovely and big. The staff were all so nice and welcoming. Would definitely recommend for lunch or brunch.

I am very pleased with the choice I had for lunch.
The place is great and fantastic place for lunch. You can have a little wonder in the gallery after….which is great.
The service is fast and the staff have a great smile which make me feel welcoming.
I’m not too sure if I’m loving the chocolate brownies that much. It’s good but its not great…they do make good cuppachino and sandwiches….which is a thumbs up.
I will definitely recommend and come back!

The food cabinet looked delightful, the coffee was good (although somehow the barista did not understand ‘medium’ size coffee – I got the standard size) and the location is magnificent. If they could improve on the process of taking orders it could be 5 stars. The queue was long and slow and no-one seemed to know what they were doing.
