They got my order for a ham, cheese and onion toasted sandwich wrong. The new version arrived with a tiny bit of ham. The server wasn't interested in doing anything about it. I would avoid this place even if I was really hungry.

My baked potato was half a small waxy lumpy object with cheese and a bit of tomato on top. The custard lime slice was tired and gooey. However enjoyed the tea.

This cafe has a rather large selection of sandwiches and hot meals. All freshly made and decent portions. If you are looking for fast food this is a much better option than the franchise burger joint. I will go there again.

Stopped for breakfast. Food was nice but restaurant and toilets are tired and need a good clean. I had the bacon and mushroom filo which had some very strong tasting spinach in it that almost tasted like nori. As there are lots of other places to pick from between auckland and tauranga I probably wouldn't come back here. Good strong... More

Hot chocolate is good but don't order it unless you are prepared to wait ... the guy on the coffee machine is very busy. Today it seemed slower than usual as the staff kept getting confused which order went to which table. Always a great variety of pies and good mixture of sandwiches/cakes. Also a choice of dishes available I... More

I sometimes call in for something to takeaway for lunch and find they have a good range of hot and cold food and particularly enjoy their filo parcels. Staff are always cheerful and pleasant

Any time I need to stop in Pukekohe I always find myself ending up here for a bite to eat. The restaurant's interior is not about to win any awards for its looks but it's homely and suits the town. The staff are lovely and the service is very fast! I find the food is just standard average cafe food... More

As a regular visitor to Pukekohe I often call into Pukeko's Nest for a coffee and lunch. Serviced is fast and efficient, coffee is consistently good and the food is always fresh and good value for money, standard cafe food.

Been here multiple times and each time had the bacon and eggs breakfast with a coffee and really enjoyed it. The eggs were poached well and the bacon was crispy and tasted nice. Coffee was well made. I keep returning for the same breakfast as it's consistently well done.

Thank Shadjet
