We chose to have an afternoon tea of savouries, sandwiches,jam and cream scones and an assortment of sweet slices, plus tea and pink lemonade. Not their usual menu but they were very obliging and created an attractive and generous spread. Coffee was available on request. We also ordered champagne, wine etc.
Maria was an outstanding hostess for us, making us feel very welcome on arrival and paying attention to all the details that ensure a happy gathering. She was delightful.
The sound system was barely adequate, and the annexe would be more useable with a dozen coat hooks but other than that our experience at Mozaik was excellent and we would return for a big occasion. Thank you Maria.
Upon walking in, me and my friend were greeted by the waiter and offered a table to sit down. The first thing I noticed was that it was very chilly inside (no heating at all), this was on a cold and rainy day which I found odd.
When given the menu, I asked the waiter “I cannot find the Mozaik burger anywhere on here” which is what I came there to get. She told me that the menu had changed a couple of weeks ago, so I decided to order the Beef Burger and my friend ordered the steak sandwich.
Our food came out relatively quickly which was a good start, however the food was VERY average “at best”. The notable failures were as follows:
- They used to have delicious crunchy homemade shoestring fries before the new menu – What I received looked like soggy chips that you would get from any low-cost Chinese take-away. They were terrible and not crunchy at all.
- The burger buns had changed from what I considered to be petite and crispy to an over-sized / under-toasted white-bread bun, it reminded me of those budget burger buns you get from count-down in the pack of six and far too doughy.
- My friends steak sandwich came in two enormous pieces of what looked to be pizza bread, the bread was quite tough and was definitely not toasted enough. I found the size of the bread to be ridiculous in comparison to the small pieces steak that were in the sandwich.
- When we asked for tomato sauce, the waiter forgot and we had to ask a second time (No biggie, just not the best service). Additional to this, the sauce was not nice – It was that kind of budget chutney sauce (I prefer the Heinz / Watties tomato sauce)
- Not food related – But I have to mention that the bins in the toilet were overflowing and there were no paper towels for me to dry my hands. When I walked over to the bar to advise them Moreof this issue, the guy at the bar just gave me a confused look and said “I just put some in there?” and I responded “Could you please at least hand me some serviettes or something to dry my hands with”, he gave me some serviettes in a reluctant manner.
I would not go back here and would not recommend the food or service. Perhaps if they made some adjustments to the menu and improved the service I’d possibly give it another chance.
There was a mix up with our drinks as well, which caused a bit of embarrassment when I accidentally drank my friend’s drink because I thought they’d just got my order wrong (I don’t like to cause a fuss by sending things back.)
5-10 minutes later my own drink came out but by that time it was too late.
Drinks were delivered very sporadically, which partly led to the mix up.
If the wait time wasn’t so bad the rating would be better but unfortunately, almost an hour is far too long to wait for simple breakfasts like mushrooms on toast, eggs benedict and the like.
We will be back for sure

We decided to give the Mezze Platter a go, the price suggested it was enough for two but we got fries as well just in case. We needn’t have!!
The platter was huge and delicious, we couldn’t finish it! Very generous with delicious treats like haloumi and stuffed pepperdews with plenty of bread.
The lovely ladies working today were warm and attentive.
We will be back for sure

Want to be treated like a princess…and your guests like royalty?
The exhuberant, yet unobtrusive manners and free flowing hospitality complimented the birthday/performance evening we had planned…
…and everyone was raving about the food!
With some cake left over (and those gorgeous kebabs) I even had some wrapped to take home!
I would definitely recommend MOZIAK Mt Eden as a fine place to entertain and celebrate that special birthday!!
I ordered the steak and mushroom and was bit disappointed after experiencing the high of delicious soup. Unfortunately this plate featured a tasteless steak and mushroom sauce that tasted like it had been flavoured by marmite and a tad of brown sugar.
Fortunately for us though, the staff friendly and cheerful. We noticed also no matter who walked in the door the greeting remained happy and welcoming. Top marks for the smiles!

The service was great, our food was hot and on the table 10 minutes from when we order and our water is always being topped up. The staff were very friendly and the food is amazing and excellent Coffee. we are definitely coming back and highly recommend this place.
Great job guys!!
I loved the music selection of Trinity Roots, which meant I could just chill out with my Saturday morning brunch, sitting right in front of the lovely gas fire.
Very efficient and little bit shy waitress was good, coming to check if my meal was good… Which it was of course.
I like the decor, and the thickly padded seating is very comfy!
A good choice to come here.

We had sizzling snapper which was awesome for fish lovers its worth trying and that’s reasonable price as well and taste too good, will visit again.
Dionne the manager was quick to answer any questions and made time to met at the onset, clarifying options throughout. On the day the staff were really obliging and kindly helped a little with a couple of decorations. I found them very attentive and trusted their advice.
The bar and waitering staff were fantastic on the night ensuring the platters were available all the time and in fact the food portions were generous. The quality and variety of items on the mezze platter were delicious, authentic and enjoyed by the guests.
I appreciated having a DJ and the duty manager communicated in a courteous way about noise restrictions at the appropriate time whilst still accommodating us.
The private fuction room was a perfect size for 40 guests and because it is tastefully decorated not much else has to be added. Comfortable and relaxing.
I was thrilled at the success of my party and would highly recommend Mozaik.

We live in the area and are frequently visit the many food spots in Mt Eden, and the service is usually great. Unfortunately we didn’t feel at all welcome at Mozaik. Won’t be going back again.
I preferred the service and eating there when it was the mulberry.
However after visiting there on Fathers Day it was like going to a completely different place – we had really nice food and coffee which they roast themselves and really great service which as a Mt Eden local is a great change.
We cant wait to go back and try their dinner menu!
Well done Mozaik team – looks like you have got a new up and coming star!!
Note: Have just been past this cafe / restaurant / bar and at 7.45pm on a Saturday night it is closed! Such a shame makes that corner look like a black hole. They need to have an urgent rethink on their strategy if they are to be successful in this position and I have amended my rating to one star.

We have visited other cafes in the Mosaik chain and have found them to be pretty good. However, in this case there was a complete failure to supply the food and drink to the customer, the entire purpose of the business. The manager’s intervention was a further complete failure. We noticed that the customers on either side of us were also having problems in getting their orders delivered, or being given the wrong thing. From my view of the counter, the staff member on the espresso machine appeared to constantly make the wrong order, and the waitress attending us appeared to think her main role was to constantly re-sort the stack of clean water glasses, whilst avoiding anything to do with an actual potentially-paying customer.
I won’t be back in a hurry. One star from me, but only because I cannot post whilst awarding none……
I don’t know who owns this cafe, but Mt Eden has plenty of options, and some of the others are outstanding. The oMorewners need to get a grip on the place quickly or their substantial investment will be lost….
The menu is the same as other Mozaik’s.
Being in an area with lots of good choice, not sure we will be back.
