Reviews for Sweetie Cafe
by Caroline B.
14th February 2014
What used to be a buzzing cafe with delicious food has rapidly gone down hill. We went to Sweetie over Auckland Anniversary Weekend, having not been for a while and what a disappointment. The staff were unfriendly and barely spoke to each other. The coffee tasted like it was made from three day old milk. And the food – well the presentation of the sticky rice and Italian Beans looked OK, the taste was vile. What’s going on Sweetie?

Had breakfast with family here today and we were really impressed. We all ordered off the menu and everything was great. I had the steak sandwich which was very tasty and the steak was very tender. Coffee was excellent! Took a couple of cream donuts and a cronut home and theses were delicious and fresh. Look forward to being a regular here, definitely the place to go for freshly baked goodies.

Went there to try their cronuts which I’d heard so much about. And disappointing it was! The icing was a waste of time, it all fell off and had a horrible texture. The cronut itself was not how a proper one should be; it was like a soggy donut. Disappointed. Their Oreo cookies and vegetable frittata were pretty good, but wouldn’t go back.. Plus the food was out with no protection, poor practice of hygiene and untidy !
Definitely wouldn’t go back .

Delightful and delicious! Our favourite cafe in Central Auckland to have breakfast. If you actually try the food (unlike the previous reviewer) then I’m sure that you will enjoy it as much as we do. We have family that like to visit there who come from as far as Howick and Birkenhead. We have never had to wait long for a coffee but if I should encounter a delay, I would be more than happy to wait patiently if needed as their coffee is a real highlight for me. My wife is vegetarian and my mother in law needs gluten free options which the menu there caters for. This sort of place represents more of the New Zealand that I know and love. It is a good, honest, non-pretentious little cafe in the lovely and peaceful tree filled central suburb of New Windsor (Just behind Mt Albert). Love Sweetie Cafe. Love New Windsor. Love real and unassuming Kiwi culture ..

Horrible wait for the coffee. The cabinet food looked sad and very dull. Expected alot better especially after reading all these wonderful reviews.

Fantastic wee cafe. Top notch food and coffee. Lovely friendly staff. Awesome. Have visited three times now and can’t fault a thing. I definitely need to go for a visit for brunch instead of just coffee and cake which I’m pickings going to be just as great as their cabinet offerings. Get yourself there pronto.

I’ve been here 3 weekends in a row now and loved it every time! Have had scrambled eggs, frittata, and the balinese sticky rice, a real treat. Love the friendly service, delicious and unique food, and hot strong coffee. They also have a big range of yummy looking pastrys and treats that I will definitely be keen to try next time!

My husband and I visiting from Wellington, enjoyed salmon bagels, great coffee and juice last Saturday 13 Oct @ Lil Sweetie. The staff were friendly, engaging and smiley. They’d only been open since Wednesday and the place was packed. Service was a lil slow but you didn’t mind because there were far too many delicious options 2 choose from, beautifully presented mouthwatering morsels! cute decor, sweetheart seats u want to put in your handbag! There is huge community support, we felt it, so we bought the house @ the end of the Street the next day (after popping in with friends to show the girl off)! Only one negative … They’ll need to buy the vacant shop next door to expand, because it’s already proved far too popular!
