Review №1

I would rate 3.8 / 5. Coffee is okay, banana bread was quite chewy and not moist or soft.Service was really great though and a good space to wire down with friends.

Review №2

Every bite of this brunch was DELICIOUS. I wanted more! Black stone eggs ($19.50) and a flat white. Friendly service and felt very welcoming. Definitely coming back soon!!

Review №3

Fantastic scrambled eggs, tasty sourdough toast, and a long black. Very reasonable prices. Windows looking out to the gnarled trees of Albert Park. Highly recommend.

Review №4

Loved this cafe. Cozy place for conversation, breakfast/lunch and coffee. Friendly staff, recommend if youre in the area. The only negative was parking, not easy to find so had to park at the garage next door. We were here for a while so ended paying $55 NZD which was $35 USD otherwise would have driven for hours trying to find parking.

Review №5

Little cozy place. The omelette in skillet are really good. Good coffee too. Would come back again if around the Albert park.

Review №6

We celebrated end of lock down with a team lunch and absolutely loved this place. Most of us ordered, Eggs Benedict, I highly recommend it. Staff is friendly, our orders were served pretty quickly. Will definitely visit again.

Review №7

Loved loved loved the food and coffee at this chic little cafe. The guy on the counter was super sweet and very happily replaced meat with veggies as we are vegetarians. So great options are available for vegetarians as well 😇

Review №8

Great place with friendly owners. George (his beautiful back is on the photo) is a man behind cakes, sandwiches and scones which he personally makes every morning. Jordan (his hat is on the background) is a customer service star. Coffee is one of the best around. Pay them a visit, you won’t regret. This might look like a paid review but it is not, but I’ll try to get a free coffee for it on my next visit :)

Review №9

Awesome place. Friendly people, tasty food and lovely atmosphere. It becomes my favorite place in Auckland 🥰

Review №10

The French toast and egg with avo was delicious. Good prices and quality food!Great customer service

Review №11

Nice chilled place for breakfast, would highly recommend.Great food- really tasty. Coffee also good.

Review №12

Excellent coffee, great selection of healthy food. Friendly staff. Convenient to CBD, Albert Park and Auckland Art Gallery.

Review №13

We’d just landed and needed a filling breakfast, this certainly did the trick. Beautiful place with outdoor seating option. Omelette was good, just wish it was less oil-heavy.

Review №14

Great little cafe. Scrummy food. Reduced menu but all quality. Small owner run cafe doing it hard after covid lockdowns, work-from-home and reduced tourist numbers. Give a go!

Review №15

Beautiful fresh food and cozy atmosphere with a lovely view of the park.

Review №16

The Best way to Start in the Day.... Wunderfull Coffee

Review №17

Delicious lunch of ratatouille, egg, feta and basil pesto on rye. Relaxed atmosphere, delightful service. Wish I could visit more often.

Review №18

This is a lovely spot, particularly coming into the nicer weather. The owner/operators are very nice. It is quite spacious and a good place to sit and get some work done while having a coffee either inside or outside. Would recommend to stop by!

Review №19

Outstanding coffee and food, highly recommended

Review №20

A warm, friendly and cozy cafe where many locals seems to frequent. It was obvious that many were return customers and the staff were friendly and familiar to them. This is usually a good sign of a beloved cafe. I too experienced exceptional service with personalized recommendations by the pastry chef himself. I had his home-made flourless chocolate brownie that had a perfect balance of texture and flavour. Prior to that I had the most divine mushrooms on toast that was served with a poached egg. The toast soaks up the garlic infused mushroom sauce and I was in gastronomic heaven. The free wifi was much appreciated too. I will definitely be heading back there cos although it is in the city, it is tucked away from the crowds and overlooks Albert Park.

Review №21

Lovely atmosphere and food. One of my favorite cafés.

Review №22

Coffeearoma nearly like in Italy. Very tasty Cappuccio and a delicious cheesecake.

Review №23

Tip top brekkie with dynamite coffee. Also has great ambience and super cute tables outside on the slope. Recommended.

Review №24

25 June: got there to get my morning ☕ , and the owner said that this is the last day the place is open. Not sure what this means exactly...

Review №26

Review №29

Fantastic atmosphere, friendly staff, and great food + coffee. An underrated treasure in the heart of Auckland City!

Review №30

My favourite😊 Good coffee, good people. Good place for reading📚

Review №31

Cute cafe close to the city but still away from the hush. Food and service was great. Going again for sure.

Review №32

Great coffee, friendly staff, calm vibe and a nice central location. The food was delicious - we had The legend (which was legendary) and the Blackstone eggs. I definitely recommend this lovely cafe

Review №33

Charming place with excellent coffee. Enjoyed thoughtful polite service and a great laid back local vibe. I had a flat white which was smooth and mellow with a nice punch of caffeine. Didnt order food but saw a nice array of breakfast items on offer. Nice start to the day and conveniently located near the Pullmann Hotel, Albert Park and Auckland Gallery. So glad I stopped by.

Review №34

This place is fantastic. Best eggs bene out there and great relaxed atmosphere. Coffee is excellent too.

Review №35

Good Coffee but slow service

Review №36

We came back twice to this lovely cafe.. The smoothies are amazing! On the second day we both had cooked breakfast - really delicious! High attention to detail, lovely music and relaxing. Highly recommended for the quality of food and friendly service :)

Review №37

Great coffee, atmosphere, and breakfast dishes. It was my first meal in New Zealand and it was such a pleasant experience looking at the park across the street and drinking my coffee. Friendly efficient service.

Review №38

Left without ordering. Food may be great but when we entered the place was nearly empty and there was one member of staff behind the counter doing something rather slowly with her back turned. While we perused the menu on the wall another customer entered and walked up to the counter. Still her back was turned. She eventually turned, saw customers waiting and went out back to do something else before returning to stare at the customer at the counter, waiting for him to say what he wanted. No smile, no welcome, no sorry for the wait. If she couldnt be bothered then neither could I. We left, walked to another cafe around the corner to be welcomed with a smile and menus thrust into our hands. Maybe Im old fashioned but I do like to feel welcome where I spend my cash.

Review №39

Best coffee in Auckland! This place consistently has great coffee. Good food options too and a pleasant atmosphere. I highly recommend this cafe!

Review №40

Lovely spot near the park, always friendly service from George and Jordan. Strong coffee and food made by the guys themselves. Excellent summer outdoor spot.

Review №41

Sometimes life is so good you forget about the best things. Have I been here before? Theres been so many breakfasts in between. Ah - now I remember. A genuine jewel worth seeking out. Top service too

Review №42

Lots of staff in small cafe, none of whom felt needed to acknowledge a new customer walking in. More important to provide daycare to an existing customers children. The unwritten rule in this small personal space was order at counter. After waiting 5 mins for someone to advise this and watching another customer walk in and order, we left

Review №43

Never have I been so impressed about a coffee house before! Both me and my parter got by far the most tasty breakfast ever. Super friendly staff as well, 5/5!

Review №44

Review №47

The best breakfast I ever had. Small cosy place with friendly staff, a lot of amazing different breakfast choices, its beautifully served and takes no time to get ready. A wonderful place to start your day!

Review №48

Great breakfast. The staff was very helpful while still being laid back. If you are staying at one of close by hotels like the Pullman it definitely worth the short walk.

Review №49

Have lived in the heart of the city for 10 years. During this time Ive literally tried almost every cafe within the Auckland CBD. Albert Park Cafe is without a doubt the best I have yet to come across. Great coffee and great people.

Review №50

The Blackstone eggs were fire! The waiters were very welcoming and you could even play chess whilst you wait for your food. Recommended for anyone in the Auckland area.

Review №51

Had the best porridge of my life here, but I live in Europe, so I probably wont be back for a while. Id love to know what they put in it!

Review №52

Lovely service and excellent breakfast just off the hub of Queen St, with the backdrop of Albert Park. Great coffee!

Very relaxing space to sip a cup of coffee while having a tea time or brunch . Been here several times and always been satisfied with my food and coffee with great customer service. Just across Auckland Art Gallery and Albert Park; conveniently located in CBD.

Review №59

Great coffee and food. 10/10 recommend the porridge.

Review №60

In this small cafe, Albert Park Cafe offers a good selection of eggy breakfasts and homemade sweet treats. The warm staff and chosen music combine to make this cafe a cosy cafe. I usually come here to have a solid breakfast and sit down with my laptop to either read, work or browse. Great coffees, good music, tastefully bananabread and lovely service. Get away from the buzz in town and relax near the beautiful park. We would definitely come again.

Review №66

Review №67

Ducked in to avoid a massive downpour outside. Have been here before and the decor, music and ambience are always relaxing. Decided to try a Chai Latte but there is no Chai left so was recommended a Tumeric Latte which was really good! Also grabbed a vegetarian frittata and although it was okay the presentation could be better (see photo). Worth a visit

Delicious food, helpful service, lovely atmosphere.

Review №78

Saturday morning at 1000: my first impression was a good one.Staff were polite and welcoming as well as being efficient and prompt with service. My coffee was very nice indeed, the food was good, prices were reasonable, seating was sensible yet comfortable, the environment was clean and tidy. Nice touches like daily newspapers and some reasonably current magazines added to the initial feeling of pleasure at having found such a place. However, one huge problem was the stench of burning tobacco: quite a large volume of cigarette smoke was being wafted in from the outdoor seating: it was a rather nasty smell and put me right off this place.

Review №79
