The staff are all very helpful, and the place is family friendly. The food is soooo good that we have been back several times and we have recommended it, too. For Kiwi delicacies in a laid-back, suburban environment it ranks with the best.

Took an Uber from the airport straight to Humbug based on it being close enough to Avondale Racecourse and the good reviews online. Had a tremendous lunch - great service - good atmosphere. Like the classic Kiwi suburban feel - but with great food.

The crew here missed our orders and they figured it out before we did, very apologetic and comped us some coffees. Food was good, not a fan of the pork sausage they use but that’s just personal preference

Nice little place for food and a drink. Great for kids to play in the second room bt looks a little dirty but parents dont seem to mind the area. Great snacks and meals but could do with more comfortable chairs.
