Anton and his team at Monet are brilliant, me and my family have been going to this cafe for years on end! They provide great service and for loyal customers will have your coffee baristing before you have ordered! They are a one in a...million cafe these days that actually offer customer service at a high degree! The personal relations they have grown over the year and continue to grow with every new customer lead them to be the best cafe in Auckland!More

I hardly need to add this review to all the others, but how can I not? This morning I had one of the best coffees ever at Cafe Monet and I consider myself quite hard to please in this regard. Small double shot white served...to perfection, both in terms of barista skills and the amazing brew underneath that perfect compact milk. Well done!More

Cafe Monet is a place we visit when in the area, and never disappoints. Its staff are invariably friendly and attentive, and the food very good. Coffee is superb, many cafes make good coffee but this one does it perfectly - every time.

The best breakfast, served by the most attentive staff. Everything came out super quick and so tasty. We really enjoyed the fresh juice recommended by Sandra - it was amazing. Staff were so lovely. Would highly recommend this place. Thank you so much Anton, Sandra...and everyone else.More

Because on first it doesn’t look like it will be as good as it is. Dropped in here with my 14 year old. She had French toast and I had mushrooms with feta and haloumi. It was delicious. Reasonable cost and great portion sizes. Yum....We will be backMore

Monet Cafe is consistently excellent. Anton the owner greets most of the customers by name. His staff are hardworking and always cheerful. Great Coffee and delicious food. Anton has had Monet for over 25 years and it’s easy to see why - he and his...staff take such a pride in everything they do. Thanks for another delicious breakfast this morning. Also for superb muffins.More

Couldn't finish my breakfast it was so huge! Yummy home style food and friendly staff. Central location and they also cover your parking fee I think

We have lived in Newmarket for 3 years and only just discovered Cafe Monet - that's unbelievable! We eat out a lot and have done heaps of reviews and although this cafe may not sit in a spectacular setting, this place will always rate a...5 in most people's minds, look at its ratings! The fabulous food, its variety, generous in serving, its quality prepared by a team that know their business and how to respond to the needs of their customers; unbelievable. Above all else, this business is operated by an owner who has a real passion for what he does, he interacts with his customers, make that friends, and has done for 24 years - how many cafes could make that claim! We like to reward and support excellence and will definitely become a regular at Cafe Monet. Highly recommend.More

We got a chicken panini, a salmon salad and a bowl of fries. All of it was fresh and very tasty. Staff is very friendly and quick. Been here for 6 month and tried a lot of cafes and Monet is without any doubt the...best we’ve tried in Auckland.More
