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!

I have been in Verona Cafe with my partner for lunch in a weekday. First of all, nobody said to us Hello, we have to do everything by ourselves and the waiters didn't smile at all. The empty tables were dirty and even when we...More

This place is great both for bar goers and diners. Definately ask for a wine with your food. I has mushroom stroganoff with some beery white wine which was delicious. Staff is really friendly too. Definitely worth a visit!

I was staying in a hotel in Queen Street and this was a convenient eating/drinking venue. Food was above average, service friendly and prices more than reasonable. Highly recommended. Nearly everyone spoke to me which is a huge bonus when one is on one's own.

Fun place on K Rd, will definitely be back when in Auckland next. Great vegetarian options as well as food for carnivores. Cant go past the tasty mozzarella and kumera balls covered in sesame seeds. Vibe - KRd.

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.
