I used to stop by all the time to pick up a treat with my friends, but now not so much. The desserts are great but quite pricey. Coffee group mums take up most of the space, so takeaway is the best option for me & my friends. Awesome for picking up a treat for a friend on their birthday.

This is a feast for the eyes! The cakes and pastries are a riot of colour, design and creativity. They look and taste fabulous. 3 of us went for lunch but it was so busy we took ours home where we had to divide everything up sp we could each try a piece of both the savoury tarts and the... More

It's hard to deny oneself the pastries and cakes found at this place. They look deliciously decadent - creme oozing out of donuts, for example. I had a bread and butter pudding with chocolate and berries, drenched in a custard-like creme anglaise. My companion had a tasty orange and date scone. Prices are not expensive for what you get. Coffees... More

I like to come here when in Auckland visiting my sister. Consistently good coffee and some of the most delicious counter food I have seen. Equally yummy savoury and sweet - but my favourite is the excellent doughnuts - they can sell out fast.

Every time we visit Auckland I always insist we come to Little and Friday, it's definitely worth the 4 laps around the block on a busy day to get a park. I absoultly love the food, so many yummies! Always a treat to stop off at Little and Friday!

My friend took me to this cafe and truly surprised me. The food were beautiful and tasty, the whole vintage decor was just too cute! Even the toilet is quite a place to go and have a look ... LOL Love the patisserie, so I bought the recipe book. Love it :)

This place is so good, we went twice in one week. Hip, minimalist decor and incredible food. Sweet and savory delights are big enough to share, and are reasonably priced. If you do share, make sure you let the staff know so that you get enough cutlery! The doughnuts are amazing.

The original shop in Belmont Auckland is the better place if only because it is in a little block of shops in the middle of suburban Auckland. Otherwise it's about the quality of the food - mainly the top quality patisserie products - a lot of which is innovative and well made. One of the blessings of being able to... More

I returned to this Cafe to share with work colleagues and we weren't disappointed. We had a late lunch and really enjoyed the offerings. I noted that there was not the quantity I had seen from a previous visit (weekend & extremely busy). Obviously a Monday afternoon is quieter and the selection was more limiting but still plenty to choose.... More

We shared a beetroot and feta tart, and also purchased a jam doughnut, and the orange and rhubarb doughnut. The doughnuts really are big enough to share, so we took one home for later. Oh they were so good! As was the tart. Enjoyed the real squeezed orange juice too. Looking forward to my next visit.
