Certainly the best coffee in Newmarket!!!
Possibly the best coffee in Auckland!!
Maybe the best coffee in NZ!
I go there mainly for a coffee, with the additional sweet treat from time to time. Coffee is consistently excellent. So I am never disappointed!
Allpress of course!
Excellent staff, friendly. They are the Newmarket ‘hip’ type friendly. Not the New York Italian-American type friendly. But friendly none the less.
The décor is not my style at all (modern industrial), but there is a free water fountain and the place is always busy. Which is a good sign. If it was bad, it would be empty.
The only down side: they are closed at 16:00 – and if I need a coffee after that time, I have to settle for second best.
I have been here several times for brunch and lunch and I have never been disappointed. The service is efficient, the coffee good and the food is of a high standard. The corned beef hash with poached eggs and hollandaise is delicious as is the breakfast salad.
I have also been here to a birthday party which they catered for and it was a great venue in the heart of Newmarket with plenty of parking on a Saturday night.
Good cafe, always busy every time I have been there.. Even worse when the media is there for the cuppergate fiasco.
Service is ok but a bit limited as many times not enough staff, food is good if you have it made as some of the food in the cabinet can be a little dry.
Always a good selection of food on the menu and it appears to change regally.
Light, bright and the service is good. It can get a bit busy but the food makes up for it. I had the ‘Breakfast Salad, Egg, Bacon, Avocado, Tomato, Chive Mayonnaise & Turkish’ which was fantastic and a great start to the day.
The coffee is worth a stop.
Modern, always busy, friendly owners, great location for office workers in Newmarket. Lovely coffee although there can be a wait due to the number of people passing through each day. They have an iPad and newspapers on site to keep you occupied while waiting though. Cheese and rocket scones are absolutely divine!
Always good for lunch especially their regular menu items – spicy mince and corned beef hash with poached eggs – comfort food! Coffee is good too.
Popular cafe and clean modern feel but food could be better. Coffee card filed at counter under your name is a great idea!
My minute steak from the express lunch menu ($12.50) was tough and hard to cut with the normal knife provided but the shoestring fries was good. Staff was not overly friendly possibly cos they were quite busy.
Another time for brunch – my toasted chicken sandwich with artichoke heart from the cabinet was better than anything from the menu; the muesli is especially not recommended.
They charge extra on public holidays but is one of the few cafe that was open in that area.
The decor has a nice industrial feel, clean, and the Eggs Benedict and the artwork are FABULOUS. Feast for body and soul. Worth a visit.
