The perfect location to relax and fill up for breakfast and lunch.
The Servo overlooks the harbour, the bridge and Auckland City.
Servo’s just 10 mins West of Auckland City centre with hassle free parking, friendly staff who know how to serve, and food that makes you return for more.
And it’s all good…we’re proud to use free range chicken & eggs, spray free lettuce and hand crafted breads.
The coffee is fair trade.
We make all our cakes, desserts, sauces and relishes, and we have a gluten free and vegetarian friendly menu. The Servo Restaurant Cafe & Bar.

Today however, both the service and the coffee were incredibly poor. When purchasing large cappuccino I don expect them to be a third full of coffee and milk. After all each one is $5 a pop! a simple apology and offer to remake them would have solved the problem for me. However the attitude, argumentative response and no offer of refund or to make more were on offer this morning. Consequently we will not be going back to what was a regular morning cafe for us : (
It looks like Servo is under new management with all new staff resulting in losing what made this cafe great in the first place.
Wont go back, won’t recommended this to any one
We returned about a year ago to the new owners, and poor food and service.
We returned today (27/11/2011) to a complete change! We were greeted as soon as we walked in and drink orders were taken before viewing the food menu (the kids menu is laminated, has games on the back, and pictures of the food – nice touch).
The food arrived just as we started getting a little impatient, but it was well worth the wait. PERFECT Eggs Benedict – the hollandaise was mouth wateringly wonderful. The Big Breakfast went down a treat (after stealing the hollandaise from the eggs bene plate). The little fella demolished his fluffy and chicken and chips.
Reasonably priced, and they’re even in the Entertainment Book so you can get a free meal!
Well done on the 180 – we’ll be back again, and again, and again.
The owner told us we had to pay extra for the spinach & spinach is never served with this unless customer requests!!!!, which has never happened in the 3 other times of going there. The owner was argumentive & in front of everyone in the cafe. We got a refund, which he didn’t want to do, had to pay for our hot chocolates that we still half full
Won’t every be going back, shame on you “Servo” very poor customer service!!!!!

I bought two pieces of the muesli slice to takeaway for a visitor.
Unfortunately they were stale and dry. The slice would probably have been fresher from the bakery across the road.
Servo need to up their game to hold market share against the new players in the area.
We noted they refill the half-used bottles of water which have been on customers’ tables. I don’t think this is terribly hygienic as I wonder if they ever get washed, after other customers have handled them etc!
We looked at the menu and chose something instead from the showcase. I had an afghan and my partner had a melting moment and we both had coffee. I noted on the menu they advertise they are using a different blend of coffee to what they are now using in their cafe. This is quite misleading as there is a definite change in the coffee (advertised outside). They obviously need to spend some money and update their menus. My partner and I both used to frequent here when we had time just for the coffee. We won’t pop in here just for the coffee now.
My afghan was disgusting. It was tasteless and I would never have another one again. It tasted cheap. My partner’s melting moment was anything but. It was large and he said it tasted cheap. Maybe there is a cheap substitute for butter in their recipe.
On a previous occasion we visited here and I had toast. Hardly any butter was provided and not enough to even spread one piece of toast!!! Do they have an aversion to butter?
This place has a lovely view and once would have been a thriving, bustling cafe with fabulous atmosphere, wonderful food and TERRIFIC coffee. The ownership has changed and perhaps this has something to do with it.
We will give them another try some time in the future and hope they take note of some of the reviews on this website. We are not prepared to spend our hard-earned dollars on inferior food which is of the same sub-standard as many of the cheap low-grade bakeries out there.
After change of ownership, an okay local cafe on the Peninsula. Noticed some subtle changes in some of the food since new owners took over – if it ain’t broke, don’t fix it they say – certainly true here. The melting moments don’t melt in your mouth!! The grain bread used is lovely. Not enough butter was given with my toast on my visit.
They use a different coffee to what they used to and since it has changed, it’s not quite as nice as before.
The service was friendly, asked what you think of the food – which is nice.
The service was lovely, very friendly and welcoming but the food was appalling.
I ordered an iced chocolate which was more like iced milk, for $6.00 i was at-least expecting some choccie syrup and cream.
For brunch I ordered the Kiwi Breakfast which was average and had one rasher of bacon (including the chef’s hair on my husbands piece). For $20 i felt ripped off and reluctant to pay. Needless to say I will not be returning.
Thoroughly recommend you check it out.
Great food – i had the vegetarian breakfast – eggs, hashbrowns, avocado, etc – very yummy.
I went based on the previous review . . . and I think she’s right – it’s great.
The actual cafe itself is not as ‘westie’ as she makes out though . . . it’s boardering on parnell in it’s cafe-style!
