A quick stop for lunch and a coffee with my daughter. I had the chicken liver salad and she the Smoked Salmon salad. Both were generous and delicious, as was the coffee. A great place to stop and recharge when you are in the city.

Had always wanted to try this place after walking past it for three years on my way to uni each day. The outdoor setting is really cute and stylish. As I went inside I found myself being a little disappointed with the decor, it was a little outdated and didn't feel very clean to me. The service however, was very... More

I'd just arrived in Auckland after a 14 hour flight, it was raining and i was in desperate for coffee! Fortunately, I encountered Sheinkin Cafe not far from my hotel. I ordered a New Zealand famous "flat white" (see pic) to wake me up a bit -delicious - and a poached egg on toast with mashed avocado and feta. Super... More

I don't know what they sprinkled on these plates, but by Jove it was delicious! Some of the best eggs benny I have ever had. It was a little weird getting my flat white in a glass, yes you read right a glass. I have to say they are lucky it was a brilliant coffee. Nothing wrong with a mug... More

This is a great cafe for breakfast, brunch or lunch, centrally located on Lorne Street in Auckland city. Also a great place for a meeting or a date. We often visit this place when we're in town as the service, coffee and food have always been top notch. The scrambled eggs and open chicken sandwich are particularly good, and their... More

Bright little cafe that appeared out of nowhere just when we were craving a good coffee and a quick brunch on our tramp around Auckland for the first time. Great coffee, quick service and great food – a generous salmon on bagel plus the best vegetable tart we've ever tasted.

This place is very well known for their great coffee but their brunch menus are also great. There is no thing like having a great coffee with yummy brunch in the weekend. I went with my partner for a weekend brunch and we were very happy as their staff were very friendly and their food was good.
