Been here once before and found again lovely food (highly reccomend the fishcakes) and fantastic friendly service, will surely come back soon.

Just awesome. Amazing friendly quick service. The food blew us away. Paleo breakfast plus bacon (I’m not paleo!) and the bacon eggs Benedict on Hash Browns. Sooo good. My wife also had an apple juice - came out fresh pressed with a slice of apple. Yum

Im not normally a reveiwer however i felt enticed to sign up to make a reveiw after an experience i had this morning. My husband and i visited Urban in east in main street howick village for the first time while on this side of auckland and what an amazing time we had. We were greeted with smiles as soon as we entered and sat down by a lovely staff member. Menus, water and even asked imediately if we wanted a coffee! Service! The coffees were outstanding and hot so we had another two. The food took 15 minutes to arrive even though they were completely full; i had the eggs bene salmon and my husand had the big breakfast. The food was outstanding and every element on the dish was perfect. Staff checked on us regularly and we felt very welcomed and even enjoyed the bustling loud atmosphere of a pumping cafe. Howick, you have an incredible cafe with fantastic staff. Please open and urban in east in takapuna!! We will be back 🤓❤

Stopped by for lunch. It wasn't too busy since we were here quite late so we picked a table by the door. The menu was a bit different to other cafes, for instance, the iced chocolate here had coconut cream so it had a bit of a different flavour. The meals were a bit more standard. I had the mince on toast with a poached egg, It was nice, with the mince sweetened with grated carrots. A nice way to hide veggies for those who don't like it. I was expecting a bit more gravy to dip the bread in though. Also tried a bit of the fish sliders and it wasn't bad. Overall a nice cafe with friendly staff.

I arrived at about 2.45pm, there were no other customers at the time. The decor was great and there was quite a lot of choice regarding food. I chose a vege sandwich and a juice. The sandwich which I asked to be heated took quite a while to arrive. I also noticed that even though they were open until 4pm the girl who served me was tidying away for the day making me feel uncomfortable. There was a lot of banging and crashing coming from the kitchen area which did not make me feel any less uncomfortable. When I left I was chased across the road by the previous mentioned worker and was told i had not paid my bill. As this a cafe and not a restaurant you always pay at the counter before sitting down. However I agreed to return and prove i had paid which i did. I am surprised she was unable to remember if i had paid being the only customer in the place at the time. They were apologetic, however i found the experience humiliating and unnecessary. A free cup of coffee next time i come in (i won't be) doesn't cut it. Perhaps if she was more focused on the task at hand rather than getting ready to close up this could have been avoided.
