The scenery was amazing, so peaceful, such a nice day, the vegetarian sandwich was so big and fllling however was a tad dry. The service could really improve, a friendly team of staff would make this experiance magical. A girl at the counter was quite rude and short, which was a shame because the suter is a beautiful fresh lovely cafe, if the staff were more friendly and hospitable I believe this cafe has potential. I really would love it if they made sugar free healthy options in the cabinet, I recommend they make some raw paleo baking or sugar free options.

We were keen to try the cafe in the newly renovated art gallery. Went there twice recently so as to take all family members. It is a great location within the art gallery, decked out with timber and glass, looking out over the Queen's gardens. You can choose indoor or outdoor seating.

Staff were busy and as friendly as time allowed during peak periods. The interior means it can be noisy especially at peak times with all that wood and glass.

At lunch, food portions of some cabinet items were a bit small, not presenting the best value for money but they were tasty (Eg salmon on rosti $16NZD). The coffees were good. On another visit, eggs Florentine and eggs Benedict ($19.50NZD ea) for breakfast were tasty but the ciabatta rolls that came with both were so hard that they were a challenge to cut up and eat. Took the edge of our pleasure of the eggs.

Overall it's an attractive venue with tasty food at big city gallery prices.

On going up to the counter to order lunch I encountered the most enthusiastic and welcoming greeting that I can recall from a cafe or restaurant for quite a while. It made me wonder why more cafes cannot do better at welcoming patrons who are ready to hand over their money. The food (lamb and spinach pie) was excellent and the light and bright setting with a view to the gardens made for a very pleasant lunch catch up with friends.

The wait has been worth it the new cafe setting is an artwork in itself. Surrounded by the beautiful Queens Gardens, and galleries full of some of new Zealands most iconic artwork, the new Suter cafe is a destination in itself. The staff are amazing, fun loving and always keen to go that extra mile, the food is superb diverse and "relatively " healthy. For a quick coffee in the sun, through to a full meal with friends a fantastic spot.
