There is nothing to say but: the coffe mugs are just too small for that wonderful coffe!!!
Food looked great also - though I just had eaten bit I will be back.
The interior is very special - go and check it out!!!

There are two things worth coming to this cafe for. Its chips (with delicious cajun seasoning and aioli) and the milkshakes (super thick and served in a jar). The coffee is not bad, though it varies depending on who makes it for you, and the rest of the food is good, but can be a little expensive.
If you get the chips, don't ask for tomato sauce, because there's some for free beside the cutlery.

Terrific coffee, lovely food with lots of glutin free and vegan options as well as good stuff for carnivores. A mad mix of 60's decor mixed with student flat ambience. Excellent spot.

Great food and excellent coffee. Lots of vegetarian, vegan and gluten free options. Large portions for very reasonable prices. The staff are friendly and the decor includes squirrels in terrariums.

What a quirky place to visit if not for the coffee but for the décor which is a mix stalled in time through 50s through to today. The staff were all young, hip and covered in tattoos - despite their appearance (which some might find uncultured) they were chirpy, well mannered and very helpful. The coffee, was incidentally, the best I had in NZ. Steph & Liisa
