Smallest portion of food I have ever eaten in my life. Unbelievable how something can be overpriced and undersized. Feels like a hipsters paradise in there. Nothing more to say…

I work just down the road so am a regular for my caffeine fix. The coffee is lovely and my workmates and I often visit with our office order.
I have never ordered from the menu but the muffins and other sweet treats are delicious!
Big fan of the Caprese Salad….a little pricey but I guess this is reflective of the area.

I used to go here regularly (about once a month) as I work in the neighbourhood. The coffee is good and the salads and other healthy (by Auckland take-away standards :)) choices are refreshing. It’s always been a bit too cool for school, but until now the service has been friendly enough (again, by Auckland standards). Today that changed (lady serving up the take-away food was extra-surly) so I won’t be back.

The staff are very friendly and approachable. I visited for breakfast once and was very satisfied with the coffee and eggs. Absolutely love the environment and decor, and have returned to grab a coffee every now and then. I also spied some delicious looking items in the cabinets that I will definitely have to try when I visit next. Big ups for these guys.

I got served a burnt quiche from a very rude lady in the Kitchen (I think she must have been having a bad day). She refused to take the food back or swap it for something else after I politely requested an alternative.. I received a lot of attitude and her response was very condescending and unhelpful – “No, that is what you ordered”.

I felt rather nauseated from my experience and disgusted with the poor level of customer service. I’ve advised my friends and colleagues to never eat at this place.

When we come to TwentyThree it’s usually on a Sunday for brunch. The staff out in the courtyard (girl with tattoos and guy with a sweet fade haircut) are some of the loveliest waiters I’ve ever come across. I wish I could say the same for the staff working behind the counter inside – put a smile on your face and don’t be openly rude to your staff in front of the customers!
The menu is in desperate need of an update (unless *something* on toast is your thing) but the cabinet food always looks nice, although you always wonder on a Sunday just how long its been sitting there.

Pro: One of the few places which sell keepcups!
Con: Lacking atmosphere. Staff could have been a bit friendlier.

It’s great that they sell keepcups and there were also some other little items which were quite nice to see there (eg quince jelly). I had a savoury muffin which was a bit crumbly but still tasted nice. Unfortunately the atmosphere didn’t convince me. In the front part of the café, you have one table next to one another and in the back you find a bar room and patio, both with fireplaces. Staff could’ve been a bit more attentive and friendly to new clients entering the café.

Food was bland and tired looking cabinet food. The coffee was also bland no flavour and no kick to it. The cafe was like the deli section in a supermarket with chairs and tables. No atmosphere pretty sterile won’t be back.

We passed Twenty Three whilst wandering down the street and it looked like a nice cafe. Although it appears to have limited seating inside, there is a back door that leads to a sheltered and warm outdoor area w/ fireplace (good for winter).

Have been there a couple of times for coffee and food and have not been disappointed. They have a range of salads/sandwiches and paninis. But also, a good brunch menu. Service was very good – though the place was quiet at the time. But staff have been friendly both times.
