When chating to pple about the Queen Deli in LB everyone agrees how terrible the service is. You could be waiting 20mins for 1 take away coffee (with 5 people in front of you!). Its no surprise that its own by same people as Maranui (around the corner) both places need their staff to do a customer service course and... More

Tiny wee shop with rickety chairs and no room to swing a cat. Good food and service and coffee though.

Funky decor and cosy atmosphere. Lovely vegetarian options in cabinet food. We had toasted sandwiches - mushrooms & blue cheese, and pastrami GF option. Really tasty. Good coffee and lots of deli options for purchase.

Another Harry Potter cafe (with ontrays- Petone) - arising as a result of maranui's stint as a Phoenix, this is a magical interior set in an old wooden shop around the corner. Five or so inside cafe tables with three seats each gives it a rather cramped feel and your eyes rove across so many eclectic bits and pieces from... More

This deli is very cute but did not have a lot of deli style meats or options when we arrived at 2pm. The shop is very small and waiting in line or for coffees is awkward but the staff were friendly and the service was good. I had an iced chocolate and a donut, both were tasty.

This is the place to go for a very healthy take away lunch. they have excellent fresh salads they make daily that are great value and taste delicious. They also make very yummy scones. There is seating inside and outside for a few people. would recommend.

i love this place. The staff are always friendly and they do great fruit scones and coffee. There isn't much space to sit down, so it is usually a take away.
