Coffee is always amazing and consistent. Sandwiches and Pies are lovely. I really enjoy some of the tarts as well! this is also an extremely busy place especially during lunch time but the staff are always amazingly friendly and will always give you smile eventhough you can clearly see they are tired from running around non-stop! Oh they also do cakes and the kids love it! 💗 Will definitely recommend this place with a 10/10!

This place is hidden off New North Rd which means it is not easily visible from the road.That might be for the best because this place is the best bakery between Auckland and Mount Albert and its is always busy.Food amazing.Coffee amazing.Service amazing.

Put this place on your bucket list. Awesome food and Ive got to say, some of the best service north of the Bombays.For a few months now, this place and there excellent coffee have been our shining beacon towards the end of a very long work night, after this its time to start heading south again back towards the Bombays. Highly recommend everything.Thank you to Ken and the test of the staff....Flat white with 3 and Cappuccino with 2

Very limited breakfast choice. No almond croissant, no vegetarian option apart from one pie and quiche. Had the pie and that was awful. Some sort of white sauce and one pea. No flavour whatsoever! Would not recommend

The vegetarian options are tasteless and uninspiring. Ive tried all they have to offer but my filled roll yesterday took cake for worst item. It had two egg slices, one piece of soft cheese and sauce on only one end of the roll. An absolute rip off, I wont be going back.

Enjoyed the Pies but the donuts were heavy and the salad we brought was too oily.

Saw this place online & the food looked amazing. It was hard to choose. Settled for a meat chilli pie, custard donut with a cronut to take home. Pie was ok, not spicy enough for me, enjoyed the custard donut too, but it was the cronut later that made me glad I stopped in. Amazing! I would drive back from manukau just to get one.

My favourite bakery I’ve ever been to. The absolute range of things they sell is amazing, from cakes to rolls, salads to pies, every sweet thing you can imagine and even fresh strawberries and cream when they’re in season. Who would have thought to put pork belly in a pie? Not me but it’s the best pie I’ve ever had. All their stuff is great. Highly recommend the baker’s cottage.

The Wicked Sarsa cake is our daughter’s favourite cake but due to the nature of the cake, it is a tricky one to decorate and make fancy, BUT the Baker’s Cottage went the extra mile and did it for us and she was absolutely delighted with the colours and decorations on her cake. The cake itself was fresh and moist and indulgent and delicious, as always! Even my diabetic mum who doesn’t like sweet stuff couldn’t resist a slice! Our guests loved the cake and this is why we keep coming back.

It was my first visit during the week. The parking was a bit of an issue when I got there although there seems to be plenty of on street parking. They need to improve on their cleanliness overall. The table was sticky and makes you wonder if it ever gets wiped. I had steak&egg Baguette which was ok.

Really really great food, really really poor service.Customers can be 3 or 4 deep at counter, and no one seems to want to serve. Why they dont put a permanent counter person on to serve just amazes me every time I go in there (which is very often)From your reply, and the fact that I have been a customer of yours for years, I strongly disagree that you always have 4-5 staff serving at once. There is always one on the coffee machine and there is no more than one usually, and that particular girl is not even that interested in serving. It is such a shame, as your food is great, but the customer experience is poor.

Review №17

The steak n cheese pie was dry & just awful, sausage roll was blah, their red velvet cupcake had a weird aniseed after-taste my 11 year old only took a bite & pushed it away, the choc donut & apple cream donut were ok Id give a 3/5, definitely order takeaway coffee cup if eating in, otherwise latte comes in a small glass not worth the money paid & the coffee aint great either, a shame as I have fond memories of this place from back in 80s & 90s

Review №18

I liked the service speed and high quality, however, the bakeries are too sweet and full of oil/margarine. Also problematic to find a parking spot, but this is not a problem of the caffe.

The Bakers cottage is good.Decent pies, salads, sandwiches, cakes and treats.Id love to give these guys 5 stars but there are a few recurring pain points that happen every time i go:1. Parking is a hassle, being in a popular area street parking is limited and there are only three carparks within the property, be prepared to drive up and down the street.2. Not the nicest environment to eat in. Bakeries are traditionally takeaway, so it is nice for The Bakers Cottage to offer tables and chairs, but often they are dirty and unattended. You basically have to clean up after the previous customers if you want to sit at a table.3. Prices are quite high for what you get. Dont get me wrong, the food is good! These guys know how to make food - but the price for what is essentially bakery food is quite high.4. No contactless payments. Come on guys, this is 2020. It is disappointing to see that you still do not accept paywave. Even during the Covid lockdown, banks offered small businesses to use contactless payments for free, but for some reason these guys refuse to sign on.5. Stressed staff. Okay, I do have to admit that I usually come during peak hours (lunchtime), but even then the poor staff always look super stressed. I think it must be difficult to work in such a noisy environment with quite a few other staff in the back fulfilling customer orders. Youre doing a great job guys!Overall, this place does good bakery food, but there are areas that need improvement.

Review №65

A few years ago this place was let down by miserable people behind the counter, but how times have changed.Marie made a PERFECT coffee and the other lovely young woman serving today were exceptional. Why? Friendly, efficient and a warm vibe. Oh and of course the food is utterly divine (always has been). I am not rating this on the decor or parking as this is a bakery, not a restaurant at the waterfront. I hope they keep the nice staff as I hadnt been here for years due to the scary and unfriendly vibe that used to permeate the atmosphere with misery. Now Ill be back!

Love this place. Excellent service. Good variety of food which is consistently delicious & reasonable prices (fresh salads, loaves of bread, soups, pastas, toasties, pies, sweets, coffees,... ). Always relatively busy. Doesnt always have parking availability & busy side streets. Lots of seating at small tables. Highly recommend.

Review №96

Was waiting patiently to be served (which of course is fine, its busy) but the staff kept serving others before me. Every now and then a server would ask whos next? And they always picked someone else who was also waiting even if they arrived after me. No one acknowledged me once for 15 minutes. Even though I was standing right next to the cabinet trying to catch the eyes of the staff and raising my hand when they asked whos next. I legit started to feel I was being deliberately ignored. To add insult to injury, I mentioned this to the man who eventually served me and he didnt care one bit, no sympathy and just said with no sincerity whatsoever sorry ok, what do you want to order? - shocking customer service from what I perceived to be a quality cafe. To their credit, the food was tasty - hence the 2 stars.I love to give praise where it is due but Im also not afraid to give criticism where it is due. As a frequent visitor of cafes around Auckland due to the nature of my work, I am very disappointed by this experience and will tell others of my bad experience here.
