“Interesting food”
Reviewed 3 August 2013

I had lunch here with my family and the food was very good. Definitely a bit of an interesting twist as the dishes can be a little different that expected. I had a chicken salad and it was more of a pate than anything else else. Regardless it was quite good. For younger kids, the food might be too different so keep that in mind.

“Good coffee and service”
Reviewed 19 January 2013

I am a bit negative about the quality of coffee in Auckland's Lorne and High Streets. It is almost as if the cafe business has been commoditised. Sheinkin is different and individual. Those who appreciate Israeli food will like it also. It seems to be only open for breakfast and lunch.

“Best cafe in Auckland”
Reviewed 19 September 2012

As frequent cafe go'ers in Auckland Central, we now find ourselves visiting this place the most often. Food is consistantly the best, coffee is very good and the service is oustanding. Worth the visit any time of the day, any time if the week.

“Fantastic, fantastic, fantastic”
Reviewed 27 July 2012 via mobile

We stumbled upon this place and, because the menu looked good we went in, ignoring some of the poor reviews on trip advisor.

I can not fault it in any way. I had the salmon salad, my husband had the eggs Benedict and our kids had, mushrooms on toast, a smoked salmon and cream cheese bagel, poached eggs on toast and fried eggs with mushrooms. We all devoured our meals which were truly delicious.

Fabulous too were the thickshakes, freshly squeezed juices and the coffee.

As for service, our waitress was utterly delightful. She answered a multitude of questions, was brilliant with the kids and helpful at every opportunity. My only regret is that I don't live in Auckland so can't frequent it.

And have never had a bad experience. One of the best cafes in Auckland, without question. Bagels and coffee: highly recommended. Well priced.
