Reviews for Swanson’s Sandwich Bar
3rd April 2014
I love the food at this place and have been going here for years, a lot of the time up to 5 times a week, but have to say the service when the owner is not on site is the worse in Auckland. Lovely staff but again soon as owner is not there it is like its cruise time. After the years of going here today will be the last time, finally sick of waiting over 20mins for a simple breakfast even when I am the only customer inside. Go if you have plenty of time to spare.

Very friendly and fast service. My friend and I’ve had lunch at Swanson’s Sandwich Bar twice and would definitely recommend going there for a quick lunch.
The food was delicious and only surpassed by the caring staff!

I have heard good things about Swansons and so finally decided to try a bit of breakfast there. I paid $14 for a smoked salmon and scrambled egg ciabatta and a coffee. The coffee was good but the ciabatta was delicately sprinkled with tinned smoked salmon on one half of it and drowned in scrambled egg. It could have been OK if they’d been more generous with the salmon but the unfortunate result was a $10 egg sandwich that left a bitter taste! I definitely would have complained but I got it takeaway and wasn’t overly keen to make the walk back from the office. I might give it one more chance but I’ll eat in next time!

The coffees were so expensive for the quality I received. Not much to choose from on the breakfast menu or the cabinet. The whole vibe of the place was lack lustre and there seemed to be some slightly confused older man working as front of house???Seemed like an overpriced Subway outlet. Definitely won’t be back alot more other options in the city.

Great sandwich filling selections for ‘choose-your-own’ and friendly staff.
Their only issue is they get so busy sometimes they aren’t sure whether people are in the line for coffee or salads and sandwiches.
If you like good, fresh food, then head to Swanson’s.

I would rate this as one of the best places to have lunch in Auckland. Very “local”, the food and coffee is amazing (especially the cupcakes ) and the staff are fantastic.
