Visted the café with friends very enjoyable, lovely food.
I didn’t realize the connection, my fathers great cousin was the original owner of a store at 7 Trafalgar street established 1863 , I have a photo of the original store. complete with horse and cart outside. I don’t think the building that your business is in is the same as the original store. His business was name Trafalgar House, his name was J.W. Whyte son of Alexander Whyte who owned the land where royal Oak Intermediate school now stands and lived in Trafalgar St. (now 10 Boyd Ave)
Went in this week for a coffee, although made very well the coffee was very sour, I ordered another one when my friend arrived and her long black was the same. I used to like allpress, have to change my thinking.
We tried this place out today, very nice decor nice and quiet with views of One tree hill.
Coffee and display food was outstanding, the big breakfast could do with some minor tweaking though.
Would happily order another if they remove/substitute the beans, and added toast with the poached eggs (dependant of which style of eggs you request),more seasoning in the potato cake.
Overall pretty happy and will come back again, but will customise my next big brekkie order.
Staff are really friendly and helpful, especially the weekend. Had 1 bad experience, during the week. Ordered the crock pot dish and that was over cooked and had to wait 28 mins for it, my partners food came out 15 mins before mine. It was really quiet, there was only 1 other couple there and was not too impressed with the meal. The person making the coffee was the only person concerned about the wait and apologised. I have been back several times and have enjoyed all my meals, highly reccommend the corn fritters and the coffee. Going back with a empty stomach to take on the big breakfast. Seating arrangement is mainly for large groups and theres not much space for a table for couples. But well worth checking out.
Normally I would rave about this cafe. The pies are incredible.
However this time I ordered 10 pies the previous day for a birthday at work the next day. Called 20mins prior to pick up on the day and was told there was only 5 pies ready. Not a “communication breakdown” as expressed but more like shabby service and incompetence. Not impressed…
Part two. Just picked up the pies. Five of them were the usual high quality. And this is were the dodgy behaviour starts, the remaining five pies were $2 big ben pies (or similar). He wanted to charge me $9.50 for the low quality ring ins. Crazy how a new business can treat a good customer like this. The office were appalled with the behaviour.
Checked out this gorgeous new cafe after driving by several times.
The coffee is fantastic (Allpress) and the food all made on site. Extremely yummy selection of counter food and cakes to die for. Haven’t tried the lunch/brekkie menu but will be back shortly to indulge in that.
Lovely friendly staff and very appealing clean fresh premises.
Definitely the best cafe in Onehunga/Royal Oak area.
Was recommended by a colleague to try this cafe. Stopped by for a morning coffee, was enticed by the delicious looking mini carrot cakes to try one of those as well. Had no complaints about my trim mocha, made very well, and the carrot cake was delicious. And I try carrot cake everywhere. One of the best.
Nice clean, bright surroundings, with clean counter food with a mix of healthy and not so healthy options, besides whats on the menu. Will definitely come here again.
