25 Reviews for Little & Friday
Today I went and there was a different girl at the counter who was totally rude to me and my friend. No smiles, no ‘thank yous’, no ‘enjoys’, no ‘here you ares’, just took my money with an irritated expression and said nothing. This behaviour reduced my enjoyment of the food. Terrible customer experience. I won’t be coming back any more than I have to.
The staff seem oblivious to this and no assistance was offered to seat us. So we stood and balanced our food and drinks in our hands – never again. THIS IS THE LAST TIME WE WILL EAT HERE.

It’s almost got a touch of that home made feel, what you’d expect you gran to have whipped up when you pop round for a cuppa on Sunday morning.
If you like beautiful cakes, amazing flavour that don’t have any commercial glug to them, then Little and Friday is for you.

Three of the last four times I have been there, the pies have not been warm enough out of the warmer, rendering them pretty much inedible – the last time I was there I got them to confirm they had had adequate warming time and was assured it would be fine. Um, no.
Anyway, I have shopped there for the last time today, as they have had the unbelievable cheek to raise the price of their pies, from an already whopping $8.50 to a now laughable $11.00.
Nice work L & F – that’s a 29.5% increase – what’s inflation running at on your planet?
Food was good. Coffee was ok.
I found the service was pretty bad. No single person working there was smiling and when I needed knife to eat and a glass for water, no one was helpful. It was also very uncomfortable because staffs go through the door near the coffee machine keep hitting me. There shouldn’t be a seat if they keep hitting customer’s back!
I definitely go back to the North Shore Little&Friday, but not the Newmarket one. What a shame.
I don’t know if this is a good thing for my bank account, but it is so very good for satisfying my need for a cosy, wholesome, accepting, efficient and delicious cafe!
I love the communal tables, they are just the perfect size for communal tables. Big enough in a way that it feels that you’re not impeding on the others time around you. But still close enough to feel ‘communal’.
The coffee is consistently great, and a standard double (the only cafe in Newmarket that does so!). And the bakery food is just to die for. I would eat everything if I could.
I cannot rave on about this place enough!
I got the pesto, bocconcini & tomato gazette (I think that’s what it was called!) plus a ginger latte and my friend got the cream jam donut & savoury brioche. All amazingly delicious!
The only negative was that we had to get takeaway as there were absolutely NO seats, but I guess this is a testament to the fact that the food is so good, plus it was a rainy Saturday morning at peak time.
All in all a fantastic cafe which I will most definitely be visiting again soon!

Not sure the yummy food is worth eating!
The service also left a lot to be desired.
Just make sure you get there before early as they usually sell out over lunchtime…maybe the should make more especially in the weekend to avoid disappointment???
Only other negative is that the kids serving at the counter could be a bit more attentive and drop the pretentious attitude.

Great for a coffee catch up with friends and a little indulgence. The donuts and tarts are out of this world. If you like strong coffee this is the place for you, and if your a little under the weather these guys do a killer hot ginger drink to cure anyone.
Best to go early if you want a seat, or just enjoy the crowds of people there to enjoy a good weekday or weekend treat.

The treats, both sweet and savory, look exquisitely delectable and it doesn’t disappoint. Price is on the costlier side but worth the treat every now and again.
I can’t believe I didn’t find this place sooner.
Situated in a shared space with a furnishing fabric store it has large shared tables, good coffee, and always seems to be full no matter what time of day I visit – a good sign.
