This place appears is a happening place. Went for breakfast after a long couple of days travel. Great food and wonderful service. Would surely recommend it as a must while in City Center in Auckland.

One of my favourite breakfast/brunch spots in Auckland. Although the venue has a certain funky heroine chic look to it the food is high quality and theres lots of tasty options on the menu. My favourite is the Dukkah Eggs. If you are visiting Auckland i would recommend ditching the hotel breakfast and heading out here for your feed, you... More

This place delivers great quality, fresh and organic ingredients in greatly-presented dishes. I had the eggs Florentine and my significant other had avocado on toast and we were both shocked and awed in a good way! Coffee was amazing, ambience was relaxed and laid-back and the staff was so friendly and welcoming. If you're in Auckland, you must stop by... More

Underwhlemed really would best sum this visit up. It was still reasonably quiet when we arrived but our arrival went un-noticed for sometime. We helped ourselves to menus and a table and eventually a staff member decided we might like to order. Coffee was Ok, but I could distinguish the latte from the flat white! food was nice, tasty, prompt... More

We are very big breakfast fans and were absolutely thrilled to have find this in Auckland. Ended up going back another time shortly afterwards because the food was so good. Very fresh and decent sized helpings, coffee was really good, I had the iced mocha and loved it. We grabbed some pastries to go before heading out to a hike... More

My husband and I ate here twice for breakfast while we were in Auckland. I had the avocado on toast which was an excellent value as they put an entire half of an avocado on the toast! My husband had sausage and poached eggs on toast. He really enjoyed it and it was also a great value for the price.... More

While the decor is sparse industrial (which does make it quite noisy), the service is friendly and food is excellent, with a good range of brekkie and lunch options including vegetarian options. The staff here seem to genuinely be happy and enjoy their work. The restaurant is open air and wonderful on a nice day. Prices are reasonable and portions... More
