Reviews for Quay Street Cafe
8th September 2013
Been here 3x for brunch. Service as astonishingly rude I have to say. Good is overall good. However friendliness in below zero. Non apologetic at all even for mistakes they make such as including milk in my porridge when I have already said am dairy free, forgotten order that ,after prompting, is served over cooked nearly burnt, no sorry, no thank u frm them at then end, not even eye contact. It seems they live in another world of service standards

Visited first time yesterday. Had feta and dill cake with poached eggs and bacon. Service is slow. No one to greet you at the door so not sure whether to take a seat or wait to be seated and café not even full at the time. Pricey for the dish which felt more like a snack as husband and I left feeling hungry still. However, good business sense and took coffees off our bill when husband told person in charge the egg shell he found in his dish. Husband and I will return because of their good faith and the dish tasted good. Keep up the good faith as it shows that you care enough to have done so.

Have read the other reviews and am astounded at the difference in level of service and food. forty minute wait for food the girl took a long time to take our coffee order thought she was making the notepad. Food was very disappointing after getting there at 10.45 and finally getting our meals just after 12 we were a table of nine and yes it was Mother’s Day but was not that busy. French toast was one piece if brioche with maple syrup and mascarpone as I did not want bacon. There were four little cubes of pumpkin that weren’t even cooked properly and soaked with what I thought was balsamic vinegar. Was left tots starving as was the rest of the table. Won’t be back

Meet a friend for brunch here last Sunday, service was friendly & the food was lovely. Its a lovely little spot to enjoy the morning sun.
My only complaint was that the coffee’s seemed to take a while to come out & they weren’t hot when they arrived at our table.

The menu – fantastic. Great range, little different but I like that.
Staff – outstanding. Attentive. The smiles put me in the right mood for the rest of the day, even from those in the kitchen.
Love the place. I suspect the writer of the negative review has the wrong place.
Best. Hot. Chocolate. In. Auckland. Only reason I haven’t given it 5 stars is because it’s not literally buckingham palace.

I’ve been to this cafe for brunch and lunch many times and every time the service was excellent and the food even better.
Their menu is slightly different from your usual NZ cafe, which I like. Salmon with poached eggs is divine.
The staff is friendly, and patient when coming there with a small child.
I also like the location, quiet but still close to CBD.

What started to be quite a nice cafe to eat breakfast at turns out pretty sour after a group of friends and I had to wait for almost an hour to to be served breakfast (the cafe was almost empty at that time!), and at the end of it, we were overcharged for our food! What was even more disappointing, the owner (or the person in charge) didnt even seem apologetic at all! Seriously rude of her!
