Service was great and food/drink turned up in prompt fashion. I had the special breakfast hash. Although it was a bit salty, I enjoyed it and it was very filling. I would go there again.

We visited for brunch on Sunday. Inside is small and was full, so we sat outside. It was a bit cold, but there were rugs provided and there was a heater (though a little far away from our table). One of our group had a seafood fritter-type hamburger arrangement and the other three of us had an asian chicken salad.... More

All day breakfast, need I say more? Haha just kidding. I had the salmon bagel with capers and arugula. The salmon isn't thinly sliced salmon it's, a thick slice of real fish. It was delicious. My company had the avocado and bacon bagel that also looked wonderful and the Eggs Benedict with bacon and a side of hashbrowns. All were... More

What an excellent cafe ( and I don't say that often). Located in a trendier part of Auckland, Parnell Road we visited this cafe for breakfast and were delighted with the location, service food, value for money...everything. We were so impressed that we went back for breakfast next day and we're equally impressed. Recommended

The location here is everything.Tthe food is nice, café-style and portions generous, I enjoyed it very much. I thought the prices pretty reasonable especially the lunch deals..all the cafes along this stretch seem to do similar priced lunch offers..competition is a wonderful thing! But the best part is sitting out there watching the world go by. The courtyard atmosphere is... More

Surprised this cafe doesn't rank more highly on TripAdvisor in Parnell! Stumbled upon it for a lovely breakfast with a menu that left us spoilt for choice and the coffee was top notch. Seems to be highly favoured by locals for a caffeine fix en route to work. Friendly, fast and efficient service to boot.

Visited here one cold wet morning, great service good coffee. The heating could be improved and maybe seal the windows to stop the draft. Good fare, great location

Hopped off the Hop on/Hop off bus for a lunch stop and wandered into this licensed restaurant in Parnell, just up the road from the bus stop. Both the specials menu as the regular menu had delicious food on offer and the service was just perfect!
