With many great eateries dotted throughout Newmarket we thought we couldn't really go wrong. Shakey Isles is in a great location but unfortunately that is where it ended for us. The quiche was dry and tasteless and came with limp salad seasoned only with Olive oil. My brothers burger was unpleasant in flavor and the $7 fries were comparable to... More

Breakfast/Lunch whatever you call it, the food was good. An interesting theme, very old and electric style. Great variety of food. check it out if your in the city. Reasonably priced.

Really cool coffee shop. Went to three different locations and they were all cool in their own way. Unfortunately on each occasion I didn't have to time to try the food but it looked the delicious. The coffee was superb. Best mocha I have ever had. You should come to the UK!

This didn't rate highly on the service or taste scale. High prices for very average food. Being in the middle of Auckland is no excuse - go to the middle of Melbourne with that food and service at the price it's at and you'll fail almost instantly. It does have a nice interior going for it though.

Despite them almost missing my order flat white (and watching my wife enjoy hers!) the late breakfast / brunch was a real treat and we really enjoyed the cafe itself, the wait staff and the food was more than your average cafe offering! My Haloumi was delicious!

This is a lovely cafe in Britomart. Latte very nice. We met a friend here for coffee and catch up, didn't feel at all rushed. The food looked really nice and the service was friendly.

This is a very expensive coffee shop. $12 for banana bread is ridiculous plus it tasted nothing like banana more like date and walnut - in fact I found a large date seed in mine. Coffee had a nice taste but was lukewarm. Would not go back.

The coffee was so good we went to Shaky Isles for breakfast a couple of times while we visited Auckland. The organic granola was also a great start to kickstart the day. The service is fast, the cafe is well located in the city close to the harbour and it's very spacious.

I was worried I wouldn't find a good coffee in Auckland at first, but by luck found this gem. Great coffee and free wifi if you dine in
