Food was over priced and cold. Came out fast so possible precooked and rewarmed…. this was reflected in taste.
Coffee was terrible luke warm rubbish with a pretty picture. Would rather have a nice tasting ugly coffee which was hot.
Mistake in ordering, my partner ordered ice coffee we received ice chocolate, when we mentioned it to the waiter he just kept repeating “iced chocolate” we pointed it out again to other staff and showed them the docket we got we were blamed for not being clear….( even though the docket clearly said iced COFFEE!) Not good at all. I live locally and would never go back… real shame.
I can discover the food from all around the world. You can buy some products for cooking.
There are lots of beers at 4 $ (Corona, Heineken, … )
There are lovely berry smoothie.
I recommend it for all New-Zealand’s people and travellers.
Thanks to Jones
Invigorating coffee the best in Auckland by a mile, make this very busy place my favourite. Well done Jones! There are not many places like yours excellent food and friendly staff.
I don’t think we would return if this girl wasn’t here, as the food horrific. The Beef Lasagne I had was freezing cold in the middle, which then I asked the blondie girl if she may heat it up for me as she rolled her eyes at my request.
Thumbs up for the red hed girl and the fab coffee!
I had one of the best grilled breakfasts I’ve ever had. The bacon was cooked to perfection.
My friend had French toast that looked divine. The presentation was beautiful and she said it tasted better than it looked.
A great spot for breakfast!
Crepes came cold on the hot plate, I suppose it should be other way around. It only had small jelly on top and mascarpone (plain). The taste of crepes was like they were made yesterday or a day before yesterday. Disappointing
Eggs benedict. The first place I saw more spinach than the rest of the food. Eggs were served cold as I said it feels like they were precooked and the size is the smallest I’ve ever seen. Charging $18.5 for this type of meal is dishonest, the better cafes in the Auckland centre would charge 16.5 and provide you with a better quality food.
The owner of the Jones the grocer think about what you charge people, the quality of your food is too low to be so expensive. The only star you get from me is for staff, they were polite this day.
We had eggs benedict ,french toast and lots of fresh still warm pastries, the quality of food was excellent.
The coffee deserves a trophy on its own as it was pretty close to be perfect.
I thought the place is perfect for large groups since they have lots of large tables and there is plenty of space.
The service was very efficient considering that they were full and had lots people waiting outside trying to get in.
Now we are planning to come back to try their lunch menu
Responding to the response to my feedback. Yes it was newmarket, and yes the service was very poor. My family also commented on how rude she was. The meals and coffee definitely took too long. I cannot remember the exact date as it was a few months ago however the lady that served us was likely to be in her mid-late twenties, had brown hair and a very bad attitude. It was only afterwards we realised that we had been overcharged so we did not bother going back (it was only a few dollars) I believe the error was due to your staff not honouring the special advertised on the front door (I ordered the schnitzel). Sorry I should have specified that this was simply human error and only a few dollars so it actually is not a big deal, hence not returning for the money. Our main gripe was with the service.
Piece of advice Alex, if someone provides criticism regarding the service offered then there is generally a legitimate reason for it. Instead of telling the person they are wrong (we are always taught that customers are never wrong) you would be better off apologizing as I may have considered removing my negative feedback. The way you have responded to my feedback reflects the sort of service we received.
