34 Reviews for Ed’s Cake & Coffee House
I often visit for the coffee and the yummy cakes and slices he makes. The service is always great and the staff are friendly and has a community base feel, and is not like other chain cafes. Keep up the awesome work.
The doughnut is, as previous reviewers have mentioned – a tasty treat. Slightly crunchy on the outside but creamy and meltingly-sweet on the inside. The pies are of a good variety too – make sure you try the Chicken potato curry – very reminiscent of how Malaysian chinese curries taste like. (Yes the owner is a Malaysian)
Coffee is magnificent (you can’t go wrong with Matakana) and they have wee tables and chairs and even a couch area for you to chill-lax. So thumbs up!
The baking is ok but limited, and contrary to every other review here the pies are FAR from Auckland’s best. Typical and almost big ben like pie, passable but nothing special.
Richoux in Ellerslie do FAR better pies, on par with Muzza’s and Greenwoods ( if you know your pies you get this review ).
This is a decent cafe in Mt. Wellington, but the decor is alot nicer than the food.
Typical asian bakery/cafe. Ok food, bad coffee.
Worth mentioning, the service is always very good here.
The staff are effortlessly friendly, so definitely 10/10 on that, however the coffee and the baking aren’t too much to brag about.
My latte was absolutely scorching, almost to the point of burnt. I ordered a melting moment and a friend had a banoffee pie while my other friend had a steak pie. The melting moment was quite bland and the ganache inside was almost 3 teaspoons of straight butter. The banoffee pie was quite dry and while the filling in the steak pie was yum and meaty, the pastry was more oily than it probably needed to be.
The prices are really good, however, but not quite good enough to warrant the average goods we ate. I would pop in there again as everyone has bad days and the service was good.
We ordered a carrot cake and a chocolate fudge cake for my husband’s surprise birthday party. They were nicely decorated and tasted great. The best part was that they were both reasonably priced unlike most of the other cake houses we’ve tried.
This past weekend, we went back for meat pies, coffee and dessert. The pastry was flaky and delicious but my husband thought that the pie should have come on a plate with a fork because it was quite messy to eat. The gluten free almond orange cake was a nice surprise. You definitely couldn’t tell it was gluten free. Flavours were really nice.
The only drawback besides location is that the eat-in part of the cafe is cramped and lacking in any atmosphere.
Also the cheesecake squares are very very good. Enjoy!
Their orange cake was amazing, warm it up a little and add a dash of ice cream!= HEAVEN!
Wish they had more stores arounddd!
The cakes are perfect, and I love the tarts. The Mince & Curry Pie is the best I have tasted in Auckland.
I think Eds Corporate Catering is the best in Auckland as well,we had some very yummy sandwiches and savouries at our office party.
Everyone raved about how yummy they tasted! Way better than many other bakery’s cupcakes – especially for gluten and dairy free! <3 Amazing and would definitely go again!
I also love the smaller potato topped savouries.
And Ed is doing the best Hot Cross Buns in Auckland at present for Easter.
I love going to Eds to eat. Dad has a flat white which he says is very good… Matakana Coffee, dad loves his coffee and he says this is very good at Eds Pies.
I thin Ed does the best pasteries in Auckland, they are superlative pasteries and cake.
Travelled to Sylvia Park on the back of a rumor of delicious treats and what a fortune I found! Had a pie that exploded with flavour and soft yet crispy deliciousness, since when did the humble pie become so stunning! Had to try more things! Cakes, Slices, Donuts, Iced Chocolates.. Truly magic.
Dragged my family along so my Mum and Dad could taste the delights and we still can not stop talking about it. Worth the time, excellent service and gorgeous food. If you have not been yet and are still eating normal pies then you truly are missing something amazing..
Ooh and the cakes, I swear every birthday must have a cake from Ed’s!
MAKE THE TRIP! THANK YOU ED!
I usually have half a pie and then give the rest to my dog, but not at Ed’s. There I have both pie, cake and a hot chocolate and still manage to convince myself that I should have an extra piece of cake with me home.
Their pies are just delicious. It’s the only place ever where I will eat the pastry and enjoy it. It’s light and tasty and just like pastry should be. You have to try their mince curry pies, they are simply the best.
I have not had a cake there yet that was not delicious but I’m particular partial to Ed’s ginger slices.
This is a MUST go to place if you are in the area.
Pastry made daily, an amazing range of interesting fillings, sweet pastries to tempt you and awesome coffee. The staff are really friendly and incredibly genuine.
Since they opened a few months back they have turned an alomst abandoned row of corner shops into a bustling business area, their neigbours must love the amount of business they have brought.
The biggest problem with Ed’s is that it’s only a 10 minute walk from our house on a Saturday monring, but that’s a small price to pay for the best pies.
If fresh pie with crunchy pastry and real ingredients is what you’re looking for, look no further. the pies and tarts are all well balanced in flavour, not too sweet, not too savoury. just right.
Its just around the corner from Sylvia Park shopping mall, so if you’re headed down on SH1 towards Coromandel or South for a weekend trip, make sure you pull in and get some breakfast on the go!
we visited them early saturday morning to pickup some breakfast on the go, on our way to a surftrip and had the chicken mustard pie, curry chicken pie, coconut tart, orange tart/slice , caramel slice as well as a chocolate cake. all tasted amazing!! will definitely go back.
Yep, mate surely the best pies I have ever had. Beats them all. I had a Steak with Crack Pepper and I’ll be back again. O yes, and Birthday cakes are just truly the best and cheapest in Town. Can’t Wait till my next birthday, and another delicious cake. Cheers Ed, keep it up. 5 stars. Kevt.
My daughter loves the Mince and Cheese Pie, I like the Mince Curry Pie best, if this place was in Upland Road, Remuera, it would be packed out by the Coffee Mummies.
It is the best pie and cake shop in East/Central Auckland. Lots of parking at present (as it gets better known you may have to park across the road.
2 Commissariat Rd Mt Wellington … Go Ed!
Three things we brought were beef mince curry pie, caramel slice and a slice of chocolate fudge cake. And WOW! This was one of those very few times where you buy food and finish everything! Very yummy!
I have eaten quite a lot of pies in my time and Ed’s pie was just one of the best in my opinion! It had great filling and the pastry was just perfect!
My Partner, she just fell in love with the caramel slice and the chocolate fudge cake – just delicious!
Ed’s cake and coffee house sure did surprise us in so many ways for just a small place that is hidden away in a residential area.
Their staff was very pleasant and friendly, again the food is just to die for. The coffee was pretty smooth.
We strongly recommend others to go and try their food for themselves. Their prices are great for their freshness and quality.
We are already hooked and a big fan so will definitely be back to try out their other treats! Cheers.
