Waited over 45mins for a tiny taco. Ridiculous. Overpriced and uncomfortable. DJ was a nice touch but hard to enjoy when everyone has eaten and you're still waiting.

What a lovely cafe. We went for a late breakfast and enjoyed eveything we ate! Fresh green juice was amazing, homemade crumpets were the best I've ever had, toasted muesli and the verona breakfast were delicious. We will definitely go back again!

Verona is a Karangahape Road institution. It recently celebrated its 22nd year in business. A warm cosy environment with booth seating. This place is a hangout for local hipsters and creative types. Makes for a great people watching spot. The food is fabulous fresh wholesome fare with everything made on the premises. A cafe during the day which becomes a bar eatery in the evening. Djs and live entertainment going till late in the night.
