Although $22 for a sandwich is a little on the pricey side it is very good. The trio of the desserts is also a must. Staff are very attentive

This is my go-to place to eat in Auckland. Food quality is always fantastic, service is faultless and the hero items are always there.

I am rather partial to a good diner - and this one is very good indeed.

Booths and tables, very US style diner menu. The food is fast and fresh, perfectly cooked and seasoned and, from my international-muesli-reviewing companion - 10/10 for the granola/muesli.

We were in the location - made this our daily for brunch.

But note - no fancy coffees. Filter only - but bottomless.

I recently had an excellent breakfast at the Fed. Their cinnamon rolls and bagels are simply excellent! The place has a classic American diner feel and is a lot of fun. My only gripe was that I didn't really enjoy the house soda, but this is a wonderful spot and I strongly recommend it.

The Federal Deli's menu, counter &booths, decor and friendly uniformed waitresses, offer a New York style dining experience in downtown Auckland. The Fed is known for its homemade pastrami, so I went for the Reuben sandwich and a side of Montreal poutines. Delicious. The serves are generous, so make sure you arrive hungry. The Fed doesn't take bookings, so you may have a short wait.
