Got five different flavoured donuts as a present. To my disappointment, all of them tasted very similar, the only difference was different types of chocolates on top (snickers, oreo and kit kat). They looked pretty, but the taste wasn't great at all... Would never come...More

We make beautifully hand crafted deli food. If you are craving freshly baked bagels, Smoked cured brisket on sourdough rye, home cured maple and cherry smoked bacon, home made lox, home made cheese curds and poutine, we are the best place in Auckland for it. We are also the only establishment in New Zealand to serve Canadian beers.
