Good coffee, but the food is expensive. They need to reduce their prices. They have some comfortable couches to sit on, however, I was asked to move to a small table with a cold hard chair just in case a larger group might come who might want the couches. It made me feel like a second class citizen. Toilets are very clean. Free WiFi good.

Awesome cafe! This is probably the best cafe I have been to. Beautifully decorated, friendly staff and most of all, DELICIOUS food and drinks! I have tried most of their food and they are all so yummy. I especially love their risotto (Chef’s Special), Thai Beef Salad and Open Steak Sandwich – very flavourful! As for the drinks, I usually order their Iced Mocha or Peach Mango Smoothie. The drinks are a bit pricey but great as a treat. My kids love going to this cafe too. I definitely recommend this cafe!!! Check it out!
Just a heads up – the cafe is relatively small so gets a bit packed during lunch time.

Our daughter insisted we come here and we were so pleased that we went, the drinks are served in old jam jars and are worth the $8.00, I had smoothie in Wellington recently which was half of the size served here but was not half as good. The salt &pepper squid was the best squid I had eaten for ages, so tender, my daughter had the caesar salad, and the wife had a dish from the cabinet. Everything is so fresh, the decor is refreshing and the staff are excellent. Can’t wait till we go again, you certainly don’t need to go to Ponsonby when you have a place like this on the shore.

Really really cute cafe!!! I had bacon and eggs and loved them!!! For $15 they were really worth it! However, the Iced Chocolate I had however great it was, was very very over priced $8 is far to much seeing as you can go to most cafe’s and have them for $5. :) The cafe is really small too, for being so busy it would really benefit the business to think about expanding. Overall the experience we had was really really good, great friendly staff and amazing food!! A+

Really impressive, came for lunch and almost everything on the menu looked amazing. Settled for the corn fritters which were top notch, and an avocado banana & peanut butter smoothie, which was, well, a little weird (other smoothie options looked a bit safer). Friendly service and a nice fit-out too. Would recommend to all!

Best smoothies ever! The honey, date and almond smoothie is my fave and worth every cent :) have even taken international visitors and had the scones which are superb. My daughter loves their mango smoothies and the chips, we will be back!

Love this cafĂ© – my local! Food is yum, coffee is great! service is pretty friendly. A tiny bit pricier than other places, but tasty. I love that it is in a random community orientated place.

The iced chocolate is really yum and pretty, however $8.50 is quite a bit. Food is pretty good and the waitress that served us was nice and helpful, however the cafe is in a random location and it is pretty small.

Fact-tree is my absolute favourite cafe in Auckland. I often pick up my morning coffee here and come with my partner on the weekends. Can’t get enough of it!

Costumer service is exceptional and so is the food!!

The website states that they take bookings but when I tried to make one was told that it is a minimum of 4 people and does not apply to the weekends.

The young Asian female I spoke to was incredibly rude.

I also got a take out from there several weeks ago and when I asked a question about the food I was again answered by a young Asian female in a very rude manner.

I would never ever go there again

Stylish decor. Great coffee. Good service. Fabulous food at reasonable prices. Awesome.
My husband and I went for breakfast one Sunday and we would highly recommend the waffles with rhubarb compote and their poached eggs and bacon. Yum!
We’ve told everyone we know to go there for a coffee too. It’s great to be able to pop in for a takeaway coffee on a walk around Sunnynook park – great for mums with baby buggies!

My wife and I had lunch here last Sunday and were most impressed! We both had sandwiches… her the BLAT, myself the steak. Not only did they taste great, but the customer service was second to none! Our coffees had been forgotten about, but this was understandable as this place was very busy… the waitress was very apologetic when they did arrive. Upon settling the bill, they tried to take the coffees off the bill, but I insisted on paying as we had an Entertainment Book voucher. They counter-offered by taking the more expensive meal off the bill. We definitely will be back and will be recommending others to do so!

Very impressed. Lovely ambience, bright and airy space with a lot of care gone into the design. Have been twice now and tried latte, tea, ginger crunch and raspberry/choc muffin. All the cooking is done in-house and is of a very high standard. The coffee was velvety and the tea made with leaves in generous designer pot. My friends and I will be back many times. (reasonably priced too).

Just loved it! I couldn’t stop paying attention in each detail. They thought in everything! My husband had a Lasagna and said that it was so good as mine, it means ” better than mine “. I had a Stuffed Capsicum…wow! You definitively should try this place!

Am very tempted to go there every day I like it so much; ditto to the other comments on food, styling, atmosphere, service and the variety. Fantastic that they can be open every day in an area you wouldn’t expect to be busy enough.
And largely healthy, even the baking seems to have less sugar than other providers.

Wow!! What a refreshing find!!
The decor is modern, relaxing and inviting with plenty of couches (as well as tables). The staff were so friendly :-).
The food was de-lish, both to look at and taste – it was nice to see the twist that has been put to some to the normal options…. you have GOT to try the Hash Browns!! They are D-vine!!! Excellent coffee too … I just know I’ll be a regular!
