The drinks and food are really good.I had a spicy chai latte and pumpkin soup which came with two pieces of toasted homemade bread. The table set up gives you lots of room to eat your food and not feel crowded.The staff are very polite and helpful plus being in Mitre 10 you can buy some plants at the garden centre or anything from nails,paint,tools,building supplies, etc.

Rather poor experience, we had booked a table earlier in the because of Mothers Day. Get and they hadnt reserved a table for us. They also failed to get our breakfast order right. The young female staff are nice and apologetic for the mistakes, but surely that was management fault for not giving all the bookings

Second time we’ve been when cafe has been really busy and the only spare tables haven’t been cleared (6 at last count)! This definitely encourages the customer to just walk out! Both times we’ve had to clear the tables ourselves and there is no Covid cleaning between customers! This cafe needs to have a designated staff member to work on the floor ensuring tables are cleared and water jugs are filled and there are clean glasses not one time use cups! At least the coffee is generally good!

Went to this branch first time yesterday with a friend to claim our free coffee on the loyalty card. Nice trick to make us spend more cos we hv to order something from the menu, not the cabinet. Fine. My problem was that the omelet I ordered (one of the cheaper items on the menu) was way overpriced at 17.90 with just one filling of spinach - sorry Im not counting the cheese cos thats pretty standard for a cafe omelet. And when I asked abt extra toppings, I was told that even mushrooms will cost 6 dollars extra! Didnt do that of course so I spent nearly 18 dollars for something I could hv made at home for almost nothing. Pls add another topping in your omelet. Every other cafe has at least 2. Wont be coming back and definitely not falling for that rewards trick again.

It could not have been more of a ideal and pleasant place for myself and company to visit for the needs/wants that we asked for. All up it exceeded my expectations as a first time customer to the Columbus Coffee experience.

Meals were brought out 10 minutes apart and drinks about the same. overall was very tasty, but very annoying that one person was finished their food and drink well before the other.

Great little cafe BUT tables need to be cleared WAY quicker!! There’s nothing worse than walking into a cafe and seeing dirty plates and cups on empty tables.

Inside Mitre10 Mega store, the cafe provides ample options of coffee, tea, breakfast, omelette, burger, bruschetta, salads etc. adequate sitting space, fast service.

When we visited it was quite noisy and some tables had not been cleared off. However this could have been usual at this time of year. Staff were very busy.Chairs scraped on the floor consistently. Suggest rubber tips on them could help.We had a cheese scone each and coffee. Coffee was good, cheese scone very tasty and I could taste the cheese in it. Many other cafes make you wonder if they use cheese at all! The downside was that we were both very thirsty that afternoon. Too salty maybe. Anyway not bad but noisy environment.A quieter time might have been better to visit.

Columbus and Mitre 10 have got a good thing going with their arrangement. Not just here but throughout New Zealand. Good food, don’t know about the coffee, don’t drink it.

Wonderful tasty well prepared and cooked food. I find all Columbia cafés very consistent. If you like a sweet coffee, try the ginger nut latte. If you order hot cakes or French toast, ensure you grab mascarpone to go with your meal. Yummy!

Review №54

Coffees good thats about it thus far !!Do not recommend the traditional mince...it comes out on top of yr bread making it a soggy mess - when I asked where the watercress was the waitress looked perplexed like she didnt know the menu I had to point it out to them written in black & white. Plate sent bk brought back two small finger sized sprigs came out...wilted. When I replied seriously this meal is $17.50 ??? I got a look of Ohh here we go ! I told.the waitress that watercress was mentioned as part of the meal she replied Ohh no its just a garnish and not really part of the meal...I was aware that my questions were becoming irritating & challenging to the staff so I chose to give the dish a try but cld only get as far as the poached egg...because the bread was soggy and the wilted watercress was not appealing.What was really disappointing is seeing & hearing the staff complaining about my feedback when they returned my meal to the kitchen to bag up so I could take it home for the dog. I spoke to them on my leaving & though an apology & a refund was offered I declined this.I really liked the staff at Columbus however this was pretty unprofessional behaviour they let themselves down.

I get the best service from the team here. The cafe manager Kusum has been there for ages and greets me everytime I come for lunch. Big fan of the their New Lynn Burger, its a decent feed, along with their Big Breakfast. If I try something new they are always there to make sure I have enjoyed it. Plus I get to have a shop in the mitre 10 afterwards. :)
