“Homemade Bread / Cafe for Breakfast & Lunch”
Reviewed 17 February 2014 via mobile

This is a hidden gem! It's a bakery with a cafe. They are only till 3pm but from 7am. You can watch the bakers work at the back while having your coffee and sandwich made with delicious breads and a long list of fillings - the chicken and chives was very tasty. They also do warm food.

Highly recommended if you are in the Mount Eden Village area!

“Amazing breakfast and baked goods”
Reviewed 26 November 2013

The spelt pancakes with blackberry compote and butterscotch are great, as is the fig and fennel bread. The food has a complex mix of flavors, but all are present and not drowned out. Fantastic.

“Take away or don't bother”
Reviewed 8 November 2013 via mobile

Great food especially the sandwiches (Reuben, croques). The service is unacceptably bad and slow. Stressed and grumpy wait staff. Kids will go mental waiting forever for food and you are unlikely to get your complete order! Do yourself a favour and get a take away from the cabinet and go eat it in the sun.

“Best brunch in Mt Eden”
Reviewed 12 October 2013

Olaf's is popular. You need to order at the counter, and there is sometimes a bit of a wait for food and coffee. Some of the brunch menu items are a little pricey. There are plenty of other places for brunch in Mt Eden - but this is, in my opinion, the very best - and the people who know that are happy to wait a little longer, and perhaps pay a little more. The eggs benedict was one of the best I've eaten - perfectly cooked eggs with vibrant orangey-yellow yolks, a generous amount of bacon with just the right amount of crispness, served on tasty sourdough with well-crafted hollandaise. At our table of five, everyone enjoyed their brunch (although the croque monsieur was possibly the pièce de résistance) and we all ordered second coffees. The bread and pastries also looked amazing, and worth a special trip.
