Highly recommended the food is amazing especially the avo chicken salad and all the desserts. The people working are friendly and very helpful, the owners are awesome.
We turned up at 1300hrs without a booking on a public holiday. The place was packed. We were lucky to get a table within 10 minutes. We waited another 10 mins before any drink orders were taken but it was incredibly busy. The food and service once we ordered were fantastic. We had beef cheeks and salt and pepper squid. Couldn't be faulted. Will definitely be back again sometime but might book next time.
Really enjoyed both visits here, once for lunch and once for a long lunch and will certainly be back for supper! Pleasant helpful staff and an appealing cabinet selection. Nice ambience. Interesting menu, great coffee. I'd recommend booking if you plan to visit on a market day! Definitely worth a stop if you're passing through.
Amazing food, early Birthday dinner with the family. Service was a little slow but it was Good Friday and they had a full house so maybe didn't anticipate being so busy to staff fully. But it didn't affect the food and evening at all. Have highly recommend people for dinner already.
Great food and superb service. Had an awesome night here for my mums birthday. They were really attentive and made sure everything ran smoothly down to the timing of the cake coming out. We're definitely coming back!
Omg. Home made Donuts are to die for. Fresh, light and fluffy. Coffee is just perfect. Friendliest staff ever..Interior and exterior design is immaculate.. where is the 10+ button with 10 stars... ❤❤❤❤👌👌👌👌👌PERFECTO
Can be very busy and cramped, but have never been turned away. Coffee is generally ok. Menu is ok, but have had mixed experiences with the food. Have only been for lunch and have never had a bad meal, but many things sound better when you read the meal than they actually are. A few dishes have made people I've dined with say they felt unwell (not food poisoning, just too rich or too big a portion). Staff are friendly and efficient.
One of the best meals I've had in Auckland this year. We had their famous beef Wellington and duck confit as well as the daube de beef. The beef Wellington was a standout (no wonder it's their signature dish). The flavours of the duck confit was good, though would've the duck leg itself was a bit on the small side. For dessert we had the Varlhona chocolate mousse, and it's the only reason why this review is 4.5 instead of 5. Frankly, the consistency was much more like a fudge. Nothing at all like the light and airy mousse that we had been expecting. The peanut butter ice cream that came with the dish was pretty good, though. All in all, great atmosphere and lovely find. Would definitely return but would skip the mousse the next time.
What an absolute gem! This gorgeous (not so little) cafe was amazing. We arrived at 12pm with the place absolutely buzzing but there was certainly room for us. Such a beautiful country cafe, a lovely interior, cute play area outside for the kids and an awesome vibe. The service was incredible and very friendly. We got the bacon eggs benedict which I could definitely say was the best eggs bene I've ever had. The ice chocolate was yummy with ice cream in it as a twist. The only thing I would say was that it tasted like milk with a bit of chocolate powder over the top, could have added more chocolate but other than that, everything was amazing. Will definitely be returning again soon!
Arrived at 10.30am for brunch. The place was buzzing! Didn't make a booking as we didn't realise how popular Black Cottage Cafe was. We waited a couple of minutes and then we were guided to a table. It has such a lovely feel - very relaxing. There is a little playground outside for kids. We ordered the Coconut French Toast and the Mushrooms with Chorizo's and a side of bacon. It would have to be the most flavoursome mushroom dish ever - the side of bacon was definitely not necessary. The french toast was beautifully presented and was so nice. The menu was amazing! Something for every taste. The service was great, the food delicious. Cannot wait to go back - will try their lunch menu next time.
