Looking for a coffee in the nearby meadowbank shopping centre there was nothing there. The Red Kite just across the road looks good and was busy late morning. Got a table and the coffee was excellent, great quality, taste and s good strength. Didn't have a cake or pastry but they did look good. Very good service. Really enjoyed the visit.

My Airbnb host had recommended we try the Red Kite Cafe. There are only 6 things on the menu (+ cakes!) but the food is delicious and the coffee the best I had in ages!!!!
The staff is very nice, too!
Yummy yummy, I highly recommend this place!

We visited this cafe twice as we had an Airbnb apartment close by. We were glad to find it as the place offers good quality food and freshly baked breads on top of coffees made to a great standard.

We tried the breakfast baps and a cooked breakfast which were both tasty and we would happily get it again.

Staff are super friendly and put glasses of water on the table without even asking both times, which we think is a nice touch :)

The only point I think we would like to make is that the cafe is pretty cold, confirming other reviews which have also pointed this out! We did visit during the 'beast from the east' aftermath though

I have been here around ten times or so, and I have never been disappointed. The staff are lovely, they are so attentive :)
The Brunch Menu has lots of really tasty options to choose from.
If you get a seat by the window you can also do a spot of people watching too.
Would highly recommend!

Walked into this cafe after my hike to the Arthurs seat. Clean cafe with friendly staff. Tried their cappuccino. Found it to be better than many of the coffee places in the city centre. Had their soup of the day and bread combo. The soup was spicy red pepper lentils soup and I really liked it. Would recommend this place to visitors and locals alike.
