Great place to read the papers, meet friends, or eat outside in the sun and watch the action in Jackson Street. Would definitely recommend it – fantastic value for money and the best Thai Beef Salad I’ve ever eaten. Full marks!
But why oh why did I have to wait this long for a simple hot chocolate. Will not be going back, plenty of good places in Petone.
I am very disappointed at the service we received and as a result I would not recommend this cafe and certainly do not consider them to be family friendly.
-They had called prior asking if it was ok to go, and told yes.
- Their babies were well behaved
- They went at a time that wasn’t busy, and sat in a corner out of they way
- And they were asked to leave after they ordered and had to get their food/drink put in takeaway bags!!
I thought this place was supposed to be child and family friendly?? Me thinks NOT. Will definitely not be returning and will be going to Southern Cross from now on…disappointing..
Very filling and tasty brekkie for only $19.
The poached eggs were perfect!
And they had Fleetwood Mac playing when I was in, so five stars for me!
Unfortunately they arrived well before the meals and went totally cold.
Four of us were dinning. Two meals arrived first, the other two meals were delivered at least ten mimutes later.
The late meals were paninies. These were over toasted and almost impossible to cut. They also had very little filling.
On top of this most disappointing experience was the stupid lid on the sugar jar. Most of the lids are simply one piece lids which are fine. This particular lid was a two piece thing like you get on a preserving jar (which I never noticed when I removed it). When I removed it, the centre unfortunately fell out and straight into my coffee.
I can quite honestly say I will never go back!
Caffiend is frequently very busy during peak lunch hours, so don’t be surprised to find you must wait in line to place your order or to find a vacant table. Even so, it rarely takes more than 15 minutes before our food is on the table.
The only reason I didn’t give Caffiend five stars in this review is because they took our favourite dish off the menu – “Thai Beef Wrap”. While they have other tasty dishes, we have yet to find any that live up to the flavour of that one.
