Been here for takeaways and also for a weekend sit-in brunch. All times have been amazing - their baking is so delicious and coffees are consistently good. My partner can't stop talking about the donuts!! Service is always great too, my new favourite Ellerslie place.

This is our local spot and we come here regularly, staff are always friendly and welcoming, food is consistently good and coffee is the best. This place is always busy but baristas still quick and efficient! Worth a visit!

When I moved to Ellerslie, I needed to try out their sandwiches. Delicious reubens, bacon buttys, and gosh the coffee is absolutely yum (strong!). Lovely people too! It’s like a NY deli. I wish there was also latkas and matzo ball soup.

Pastrami and Rye are local to me so I've been there multiple times, sometimes with friends or family. I have found that the sandwiches are always hot with a generous portion size and the dessert cabinet is always full of tempting treats. The staff are...always super sweet and friendly, and it's worth having a nosy over Christmas because they sometimes have mouthwatering displays of ham or salmon. If you have some carnivores to feed, then this one is worth a visit.More

I have been going to P&R for a couple of years now and have never been disappointed. Dave has created a unique experience in Auckland. The staff are all so welcoming and full of life so there is always a great vibe inside. Their sandwiches...are large and packed full of goodness which makes them great value for money and simply delicious. The crisps and pickle on the side are an added bonus. I can never go past a fresh juice when I'm there either. This place is a must visit if you are in Auckland! You won't be disappointed.More

Pastrami & Rye is amazing. You could not find a better sandwich anywhere else in Auckland maybe even NZ for that matter. The coffee is great (Supreme beans). Made to perfection. The staff are awesome, super friendly and always make you feel welcome. The food...and coffee is made super quick, giving your more time to sit and take your time to enjoy the whole experience. If you are in Auckland you must make the trip.More

I love heading here as the crew are super friendly and always remember my favourite coffee and have the best sandwiches ever. They home smoke their own meats and salmon and you know the moment you take a bite. I bring every overseas visitor here...for the experience. It’s small and tight and often busy - just as you would hope it would be with the quality of food, coffee and serviceMore

It could be so good, but there is always at least a 10-minute wait-time and often the quality is just not there. A Reuben with most of the meat so full of grissle that I couldn't eat most of it.... I would love to go...there - the menu is fabulous, but who can wait so long at lunch time for a sandwich? And the food doesn't justify the price.More
