The cafe is busy every day but extremely busy on weekends. Food is very good & coffee hits the spot. Very retro. Staff are friendly but you might have to wait awhile at weekends. There is parking on side street. We go here most weekends.

We leave not far away so we are regular customers. It's the one of the best cafes in west Auckland by far. Great vibe and the food & coffee are spot on. It can get quite busy and you might need to wait for your order if visiting in pick times. Their parking is limited but it's plenty of parking... More

This cafe has some good vegetarian options. I have enjoyed the little risotto cakes with pumpkin salad, last few times I have been. I almost like slices in cabinet. Service is good friendly helpful staff. I good to this cafe a couple of times a month.
