Good coffee, great service and a really interesting menu with the food sourced from a local farm. Excellent find just down the road from the Quality Parnell.

The recent upgrade of Rosies , formerly Rosehip Café, is great. Very tasteful décor but quite crowded. New menu is great. If you haven't been there then give it a go. Staff are very friendly, ask for Leanne or Anna.

We dropped in on a Thursday night. They don't take reservations but we had rung five minutes earlier to see if they had any tables and they held one for us. The menu is interesting (don't be put off by the unusual-sounding ingredients) with a range of tasty starters mains and desserts made from quality ingredients. Our meal for one... More

On a recent trip to Auckland I visited Rosehip twice. Once for coffee, which was excellent along with the service. Staff were very friendly and attentive. The second visit I took the kids for breakfast. We settled for the eggs done anyway option, which had no price next them on the menu. Two of us had them poached and one... More

If it's just a cup of tea or coffee - or a snack mid morning/afternoon, or something more substantial - you won't be disappointed. Elegant and trendy - these guys run a small but tasteful outfit. Try it - you won't be disappointed.

This café is a great find in the heart of Parnell but off the busy main street. It's obviously very popular with the locals and serves fantastic coffee, with a wide range of delicious pastries to choose from for breakfast or brunch. The service is top notch - the waitress apologies for keeping me waiting when in actual fact my... More

We ordered a whitebait omlette ($26) and a pan grill squid + salad with pancetta side ($25) as our mains. Two cold drinks and... More

Good coffees, excellent service, good food but somewhat fussy sort of menu, so may not suit you if looking for a simple or traditional café food. Also have some cheaper cabinet foods available (the date & orange scones are recommended). Full of locals plus does takeaways if you want to buy a coffee and go and wander around the rose... More
