Delicious food. Organic and gluten free choices.  Good service. Friendly staff. Clean and tidy cafe. Cafe worth checking out.

Raven and Cook is my favourite café in Auckland. It has everything a great café should, great coffee, delicious cabinet food and a relaxed atmosphere. After recently moving from Wellington, Raven & Cook reminds me of my local cafés there. Their chocolate brownies are amazing, as are their donuts and brioche (both sweet and savoury). Yum! They have an interesting brunch/lunch menu and the specials change regularly. Definitely a great place to visit for a coffee date or brunch.

This is the best cafe I've found in Auckland for a very long time. Delicious, innovative food, lovely staff and no sweaty Lycra clad customers an added bonus!
Spectacular scallop, sorrel & nettle soup - sounds odd but so so good. And the apple and parsnip soup was equally Delicious. Generous portions and good prices. My 9 and 7 year olds were very happy too. Great coffee. Ill be back for sure.

I have been to this cafe 3 - 4 times now and loved it every time. I am a big fan of Allpress Coffee so needless to say the coffee is good. There is a good range of yum cabinet food as well as a great menu with generous portion sizes. The staff are always friendly and service prompt. I'd recommend this cafe to anyone.

Wow, tried this new Café out on the way back from the airport, was hanging out for a decent coffee! I am so glad I stopped as this area has been crying out for a nice Café, staff were very friendly, service was great and the coffee excellent. Decided to come back a few days later for Brunch and the eggs were excellent. I highly recommend and hope they do well.

I visit this cafe at least once a week, every time i come in I'm greeted by the friendly staff behind the counter. The Barista remembers my coffee order and makes it perfect every time. The food is always yummy and i love how they have new specials regularly, with something unique every time. I would defiantly recommend this cafe to family and friends! Keep up the good work guys!

Have been 3 times as it's local - food is good but the service was very poor on all visits. How they ended up on a recent best cafe list is a mystery.
Very nice young staff but they need training in customer service, as does the owner/cook. Only 1 older woman was anywhere near up to scratch.
Prices are on the high side for a cafe so better was expected.
They ignore customers when they sit down (you have to get up & get menus from the counter - on the second visit the owner/cook even told us to get them ourselves!), empty plates left on table even when 2nd cups of coffee delivered; wait time for meals far too long - on all visits the cook was busy talking to people he knew in the cafe rather than helping the kitchen staff; ran out of muffins for eggs bene; ran out of black pudding; 3 of the 5 specials were sold out all before 11am on a Sunday!
