This place is consistently excellent. The staff are fantastic and good fun. The coffee is brilliant and the food excellent. There is always a dog or two to admire at the front door.
I ate there for the second time recently. The food was ok except for the fact that I was served a cooked tomato that was rotten. It had been cut open when I received it and was at the point where the seeds were black. This was clearly not a marginal situation. What was worse was the dismissive response for the waitress saying that it is a fact of life in summer weather. There was no attempt to make it right or improve the experience for me. I won’t be back and may not bother with any of the others in the chain if that’s how they operate.
I have visited this café on several occasions. Nice clean place. Very busy and the Allpress coffee is good most of the time. Very professional service and food is good. The waiter was very prompt and the kitchen was fast considering how busy the place was.
Had a great lunch & good coffee.
Service was incredible – staff constantly walking the floor ensuring water glasses full, plates cleared etc. Free sparkling water a really great extra. Food was very good & atmosphere very enjoyable. Shaded deck a great spot to while away the afternoon.
Will be back soon.
Richmond Road Cafe always delivers on exceptional, well priced (for Auckland!) food. They have a great range of menu options. On my most recent trip I ordered buttermilk pancakes with a rubarb compote and citrus mascarpone. The pancakes were lovely and light and the mascarpone cut through the sweetness of the rubarb. For a beverage I tried their banana and passionfruit smoothie which was ok – I would have liked more passionfruit but not a big issue. Service is ok – it could be better and a lot more welcoming and friendly. This Cafe does get REALLY busy on weekends but I have never found the noise to be an issue. A cafe well worth checking out!
Had breakfast here today and it was very nice.Friendly staff and food was delicious.Coffee needs a little tweaking but overall very nice and welcoming!
Had a delightful time at this cafe. We shared a very nice smoothie which was lime and passionfruit between 3 of us which was no problem at all for the lovely Scottish waiter. Our meals were great the Eggs Bene, Vege Breakfast and Braised bianchi di spagna beans. My vege breakfast did come out only slightly warm which was a little frustrating as it should be coming out hot. Will return to try the gorgeous looking buttermilk pancakes
I go to this café every day for a coffee as it is the closest one to where I work and it is generally quite good. The staff are exceptional, service is very friendly and fast and the even open the doors for you if they are anywhere nearby.
The only thing that let them down really is that their coffee is very hit and miss. Sometimes burnt, sometimes over-extracted and sometimes the milk is horrible.
If there was a closer café to me then I would probably have switched by now for coffee but go there for the food!
Fantastic food, warm, friendly, bustling environment.
I loved the roast beetroot salad with cress, mint, almonds and grilled haloumi.
As my lunch companion, the esteemed food critic Ewan McDonald said (NZ Herald 29/4/09), “We agree that cress – the grown-up sort, not that ridiculous mini-me – adds flavour and character as a salad, but when you’re meeting someone for the first time, it’s damned difficult to nibble with dignity. Just try to murmur business intimacies with a lengthy stalk hanging from a corner of your mouth.”
Tee hee hee. That’s how it was.
The coffee was bitter for the first few times I went their but it has gotten better
I have had the eggs bene salmon srambled eggs which i love the service of your staff are excellent they are always checking to see if you are ok or need something else which is lovely and I love the freshly squeezed juices I always have one when I have time to eat over all I would recommend Richmond Road Cafe to everyone
