Was really looking forward to High Tea but what a disappointment. Took half an hour to be served with a cup of tea and three quarters on an hour before the food appeared. Totally unacceptable particularly as the café was not very busy. Food when it finally came was not well presented, in fact looked as though it had been... More

Sad to say this once popular cafe seems to have gone right off. Food very ordinary, service even worse.

A popular lunchtime cafe presenting a number of attractive-looking salads and cold meats. I had a medium sized plate containing a generous serving of a cauliflower salad that was quite tasty. I also had the lemon toddie to drink which was delicious, and such a pleasant alternative to coffee or tea.

I had bought lincheon vouchers for my son-in-law for his birthday. My daughter added to this on line so 6 of the family could go. The table was set for high tea..with small plates. My daughter gave the tokens to the waitress who then insisted she had not bought the correct documentation, even though we had been before without hassle.... More

The vegeterian omelette was dry and tasteless-They must have been short of ingredients as there was hardly any pumpkin nor feta nor anything else. Zarbo has gone downhill!

Out for a bit of shopping with mum and came across Zarbo in New Market and decided to stop for a bite to eat, this was our first visit to Zarbos for both of us. The location is great and they have their own carpark which is fantastic for a cafe in Auckland and so handy. I had the Zarbo... More

I used to love Zarbo's Herbed Scrambled Eggs and hadn't been over that way for quite some time so thought it was time for a nostalgic visit while passing. What a disappointment and an accident waiting to happen. The eggs used to be served with a quality handcrafted ciabatta. Then one of Dean Brettschneider's sourdoughs when his artesian bakery set...

This popular deli is usually full at lunchtime, so we went a little earlier. I must say I was disappointed, the variety of food wasn't nearly as good as I remembered and not as tasty. Service was poor and I felt it no longer lived up to it's reputation.

Good food, pleasant atmosphere and lovely staff. The veggie brefast didh (forgot the name) was surprisingly huge. My mom's Salmon Denne looked amazing. The beverages were good too. Had a nice time.Highly convenient location and this does make sure that we will be back while shopping in new market.

I have usually had great food here. So purchased Grab One coupon. Disappointed High Tea, crust on, fish paste? Would not do High Tea again. Service was efficient and as pleasant as it always is.
