I went primarily for music gig. The music was totally awesome. Live music Wednesday to Sunday evenings, mainly acoustic. Awesome intimate venue. Service superb and very friendly. Great snack food and drink.

This is the coolest of cafes ... not only is the coffee great, the service comes with a big smile .... but the music happens several nights a week ....and it's very cool. Local and visiting artist bring the house down with all genres of wonderful live performance... A true gem and the food is refreshing varied and well priced.

Cafe One2One is an Auckland institution. Started 25 years ago by Chris Priestley it's been notable as one of the best coffee spots in the city, & it has another claim to fame - live, acoustic music. Chris, a fine singer & songwriter himself, has made the cafe a home away from home for musicians from all over the country... More

This was one if these basic - "we will grab sone brunch with the baby in tow nearby". So, as you do you order the scrambled eggs et al. Food was extremely average. Bacon was either over cooked in parts and under in others. Scrambled eggs were more of an omelette. Basic things like the water glasses and high chair... More

We went to One 2 One for lunch a few days ago.What a lovely experience.The food was delicious,the service efficient and the laid back atmosphere a welcome tonic at this crazy time of year.We sat outside in the courtyard,which was great for our grandson who walked around enjoying the little garden and the occasional sparrow.Charming.

I know the cafe has only been opened for two days , but I couldn't wait to try it . I was so impressed. The fantastic coffee was served in a hand made pottery mug. I choose the stuffed artichoke , it was light tasty and fresh, my mouth was zinging with flavour It was much better than the artichokes... More

Had a brunch here midweek with the family. Easy experience and friendly service. The food was fair to great, depending on what you ordered. Outdoor courtyard is a lovely spot too. Reasonably priced for the suburb. It probably goes off in the evenings, which accounts for the quiet daytime shift.

Thank Cresno
