The best coffee I have ever tried. So good that I went back there the next day. The place has a relaxed feel where you just want to sit around look at your IPhone and sip coffee.

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.
