Eating out for brunch each weekend we decided to try Cafe Figg regardless of the last review. I am so glad we did! The eggs benedict was cooked to perfection..the best we have had in the last five years of dining out for brunch! I wish I had the egg poaching ability of whomever cooked today..simply perfect..not to mention the yummy potato cake that came with it.. crunchy on the outside .soft and melt in mouth on inside. Coffee I would rate around the 8/10 mark..was a little bitter but definitely we will be going back. Keep up the awesome food and service!!

This cafe use to be fantastic, we ordered two platters. Both we absolutely B grade. I could have done better. They forgot my drink and just seemed completely disorganised. I won’t be returning as there are so many good cafés in Petone now to choose from. These guys need to take a serious look at their menu and systems, if they want to survive.

Food needs to be better!!. Eggs Benedict : not enough sauce, eggs overcooked, bland. Mushroom, corn and zucchini fritters: the dish didn’t live up to the name, it was just plain batter with a few tiny bits of the above. Change the recipe or change the name to Vegetable flavored pancakes. the sweet chilli sauce should be on the side, not all over the dish, too much, oh dear.Overpriced!

Cafe Figg is my local cafe and I always seem to be drawn back despite the average food, I suppose this is because of the wonderful staff members they have there, and not to mention their fantastic coffee.

Menu food needs a bit of polishing up, and possibly a re-do of the menu (as it is a little bit stale and predictable).

My partner and I have gone to this cafe a few times and each time we have thoroughly enjoyed the food, coffee and service. As well as the outdoor seating area with grape vines surrounding a neat sunny spot.
It’s a great place to catch up with a friend, not in a big group as the place has an intimate feel.
The chocolate cake is beautiful!! I also loved my eggs benedict which I devoured ;)
Overall a great place to visit A+

Have been a few times now, each time the food and service has been excellent. Coffee was ok – not amazing – but made up for by the delicious food. We had the beef burger which came with a side of crunchy wedges, aioli and sweet chilli sauce, and the corn fritters. The corn fritters are delish, with proper mushroom and courgettes in the batter. Thank you for a pleasant brunch. Sitting in the courtyard out the back in the sun made it so much nicer too!

Have been here twice with groups, nobody enjoyed their meal very much

Below average and HIGHLY overpriced

The fish was simply the fillets you buy from the supermarket (Frozen pre packed) , horrible

The beef burger was “ok” , nothing special

The eggs benedict was “ok” , nothing special

Main point being the price, the food would be fine if the price was half of what it is, however within walking distance there are several cafes with far better food for the same/cheaper $$$

The 2 stars are for the service, the lady behind the counter has been fantastic both times and the waiting staff in general were great.

We’ve been to Cafe Figg 3 times since November and each time have been very happy with the service, food and coffee.

Last visit was on Friday for brunch: the pancakes with bacon, banana and maple were delicious! And the bacon and eggs with home made hashbrown had by himself looked lovely too. The service was super quick, despite the place being busy, and the coffee was great too.

We’ll be going back again for sure!

Went to Cafe Figg today for breakfast. I ordered Eggs Benedict with ham and my partner ordered Pancakes with bacon and banana.
When our meals arrived, my order has been entered incorrectly and I was presented with corn fritters (which actually looked really good) . The girl serving was gone so quick and I couldn’t even tell her my order was incorrect. Would have been nice when presenting them if she could have said what they were when they arrived.
When my correct order arrived I didn’t even get an apology it was just shoved down in front of me.. I was very disappointed. The eggs were overcooked, the muffin soggy and the ham and hollandaise sauce both cold – not nice with warm eggs. The hollandaise tasted by an instant packet mix.
My partners pancakes too tasted like a packet mix also and the bacon was only just cooked.
We will not be coming back!

I was disappointed as this used to be a great cafe – my friend and I went for AM tea. I asked for strong tea and it was weak as. The cheese scones were so salty they were inedible so I complained (nicely) – no action – I mentioned it again to another person still nothing offered instead of and no offer of money back. The people at table next to us didn’t eat their cheese scones either. The lack of response to a legitimate complaint was poor customer service. I won’t be back and doubt they will be in business long with this poor performance.

Went here that other day for breakfast, both partner and I got the big breakfast (or whatever its called). Was a nice breakfast, eggs cooked just right and served on sourdough which I love. The bacon was nice, however the mushroom was rather withered and look quite unappetising – gave this to the partner. Very quick service. Overall a good experience.

We tried Cafe Figg on Saturday afternoon as it is in the Entertainment Book. While the decor was nice and the staff were friendly, the eggs benedict was the worst I’ve ever had. The eggs were overcooked (solid yolks), the bacon was undercooked, the muffins were soggy and the hollondaise was a pale lemon yellow and tasted sour and out of a bottle of some sort. I definitely won’t be going back there.

Have been there a few times but today was the worse experience I have ever had. After explaining that I was lactose intolerant and could not have any dairy products they offered to make a Greek salad from scratch without the feta cheese – this wasn’t the case. Saw the front of house take the pre made Greek salad with cheese from the cabinet and had to delivered to me after they plucked the cheese out of it leaving residue. This is what not I call made from scratch and if I ate a piece I could have had my throat swell up. Definitely will not be going there again even if my partner did enjoy his meal.

A small cafe with a tasty menu and good, basic selection of fresh baking. The service was prompt and the cafe interior is bright and colourful with a great lunchtime buzz.

Really nice place for a hangover breakfast. The place is quite intimate (aka small) so it can be busy easily, but the breakfasts are generally well worth it.

The toilet represents a bit of history in that it is one of those outdoor entrance loos that were once so common in Petone.

Sorry Renee,you must have the wrong cafe(good clue is that you’ve got the coffee brand wrong for a start).The food is always fresh,delicious,and varied with generous choices for all,including vegetarian and gluten free options.I have always found the staff very friendly and obliging.

Went here with my partner on Saturday.
We were very impressed by the selection in their display cabinet and they also had a great menu.
We chose to go with the Vegetable Tart…it was phenomenal…!
Coffee was great too, and for dessert we went with a Ginger Almond Cake and a Blackcurrant Almond Cake – YUM! Beautifully moist and tasty :-)
Great service from the team there.
Would definitely go back (especially for the vege tart!) 5*+!
