I used to have breakfast there every sat morning and with other friends every Sunday but recently the place was sold and new people took over and the new "manager's" attitude and service is very bad. I got news for you, we won't be going back and if you don't change your game plan, this place will go under!

With good coffee, delicious cakes and friendly staff I often come here to catch up with friends. Quieter than being on Ponsonby Road so good place for having a chat.

We had breakfast here when we stayed in Auckland. The place is located in an old fire station and has a great atmosphere. The coffee and food are excellent (try the breakfast salad!). There is free WIFI and the staff is very friendly and helpful. Would definitely go here again.

An excellent cafe, I can recommend the big breakfast! I used to live 5 minutes away and always used it on Sunday mornings! I still go back every now and again when meeting with friends.
