Fantastic range of salads, had ordered a large number of the mixed salads for work and everyone raved about them for weeks afterwards. Its a great place to go and relax with a coffee on a Saturday morning when the weather is nice. I am often blown away by how busy it is and the range of different meals available around the counter. 

I would definitely recommend the caeser salad or any of the salads really! They are all SO delicious. 

I also really like the range of sweet treats they have available. As you can see below balance is key - cake and a green smoothie :)

As a delicatessen this place shines! Undoubtedly the finest selection of salads, cakes and slices on Richmond Rd (probably also greater Ponsonby for that matter :-). Admittedly seating isn't great, with a few tables outside on the footpath but then this is a deli and not a cafe, and normally it is impossible to see such a delectable selection of cakes and salads on offer, most of which you can't get anywhere else. I am always amazed at how much selection they have, the quality and the friendliness of the staff, not to mention it is always busy....

Had a bacon and egg but for break, absolute gastronomical heaven !

The egg was nice and runny just how I like it , perfect hollandaise fresh.

I'm a very keen cook myself , but I will be back with more runny egg down my chops;)

I also had the lamb moussaka a while ago , was Devine

Ripe is the little deli that could - while not primarily an eat-in place, on a good day the outside tables make a very pleasant place to stop and sample their food. Ripe does a great selection of counter food - salads, sandwiches, potato cakes and the likes, and has a particularly scrumptious looking array of cakes and other goodies. Clientele range from yummy mummies to people talking business to friends catching up. Definitely worth a visit if you're in the neighborhood.

I bought a chicken ceaser wrap today. And it was delicious - there wasn't any bacon that I could see or taste, but it didn't detract from the flavour. The lemon slice was to die for - but then I love lemon curd anything. The food is pricey, but I am rarely disappointed with the food. The staff member who served me today, was very pleasant, bright and bubbly.

Bought a chicken & bacon Caesar wrap yesterday however main ingredient was egg (a lot of it) and shredded lettuce - a hint of Caesar dressing and no bacon. One minute slither of chicken which I could see. Very disappointing for the price $10.50 and asked for a extra hot coffee and received a mildly warm coffee with a lot of froth.

Stopped here for a quick lunch when in Auckland for business. Exceptionally friendly staff. Heaps of food selection. No loo (that I could see) or indoor seating which was a bit tough on a wet day. My wrap tasted very fresh and was a very generous portion. Their recipe book looks fantastic! Might have to save up and buy it next time I'm up.
