Very relaxed place. The staff have great attention to detail and personal requests, and are reasonably quick serving the meal. Stands out from the rest!

Decided to pop in here with family on a wet New Year's Day. Great iced chocolate well presented and tastes better than most cafes - not like watered down chocolate milk. We had nachos to share, which were a reasonable portion for 4 people to snack on while shooting the breeze. The rest of the family had coffee but didn't... More

Sierra has indoor and outdoor cafe seating and a great selection of newspapers and up to date magazines for your reading pleasure. Great for a quiet weekend coffee :)

Wow, talk about over priced!!! $15, i ordered bacon and eggs fried, sunny side up, for take away. What did I get? Bacon 2 scroungy small pieces. Eggs poached, (not fried), on a plate to have there, not take away. I complained that they are way over priced for that miserable excuse for a $15 dollar breakfast, only to be... More

I have enjoyed excellent coffee and food and pleasant approach of the staff at this establishment in the past but became disenchanted some time ago as the cafe really needed to be refurbished and I no longer enjoyed spending time there. I recently returned to see if there had been any improvement but sadly the decor has not changed. such... More

I have been a customer of this branch of Sierra for since 2008 and always enjoyed my time there. It has changed management 3 times since I first visited with improvement. The coffee and food is still good but the surroundings are now tired and dull and refurbishment is needed. Considering all the cafes and restaurants in Takapuna, it would... More

I am continuing to make regular visits to this cafe in Takapuna. The coffee continues to be of the same high standard as is the food. The Staff are always pleasant and efficient. Maybe not in the most central spot but deserves to be supported by locals and visitors alike.

Excellent coffee and food. Staff are efficient and friendly. Chefs produce excellent dishes, as well as cakes and savouries. The cafe itself could do with some refurbishment but well worth a visit.
