We had lunch here one day and we really enjoyed the food. Dunk Cafe is a great place for lunch full stop. Well worth a visit anytime.

A long black and bran muffin for $6.50 was my favorite breakfast. Both are delicious. Express breakfast was my husband's favorite - a real deal for $10.

smallish cafe on main street parnell indoor and outdoor seating run by asian couple both very obliging , far more so than the european waitress they have sometimes good coffee and scones large display of cabinet food menu is pretty basic and what is presented is basic not a lot of flair , but then prices are reflective of that

The food was really not great, their coffee is somewhat just above average but the terrace is quite enjoyable on a sunny Sunday morning. The staff was really friendly and prices reasonable.

My husband and I were touring Auckland on Hop On Hop Off Explorer bus. We got off at Parnell Village and wandered into the Dunk Cafe. The owner is very friendly. We had scrambled eggs and bacon - perfectly cooked. Variety of sandwiches and cakes freshly made. Ideal place to drop in for a bite to eat.

Had brunch on our first morning of our trip. Eaten here before standards have not changed. Excellent breakfast and coffee in delightful settings.

My wife and I are very regular Saturday or Sunday visitors to Dunk, as you just can't beat their breakfasts on Parnell rd. Coffee is Allpress and always superb. The owners work in the cafe and are very friendly and eager to please. We love the eggs Benedict with salmon, and the bubble and squeak, can't really get past these... More

We ate brunch on a Saturday morning, and everything was freshly prepared, tasty and plentiful. The mocha coffees were especially good. Friendly service too.
