I came here with high hopes, it having received good reviews on both Trip Advisor and Lonely Planet. What I encountered was chaos. It was difficult to order and hard to find a place to sit. I won't be back.

Originally went to eat at the place next door. But decided it was just not our style. I thought bagels weren't either. But I was wrong. Good food, good coffee, and a great place to sit on a winters day next to the fire.

Couldn't get enough of this place in our two stops at the Auckland airport. Fast and friendly service and the bagel choices were delicious (BLT and Tuna) Nice that they offer beer as well.

Nice atmosphere. Food was served in a timely manner and tasted great. The dish I got was a bit messy so would recommend having many napkins if you get anything with egg on it.
