These guys make the best bagels, a specialty! The salmon and capers one is amazing. Their mochas are just great as well. Best service, Paul is a great guy to chat with and the manager was so welcoming and prompt with orders

Wouldn’t come here again. Our party of four ordered and three meals arrived but my soup order was forgotten. I queried where it was about 10 minutes later, and was told it would be brought out straight away. It only had to be served from a crock pot which I could see bubbling away. A further 10 minutes – still no soup! The coffee was far too small for its price.

Really nice coffee here. One of the best shot blacks I have ever tasted before. Nice contemporary layout and it’s really trendy. Love the beautiful lady working there, she is gorgeous. Will head there for coffee there again.

Friendly service, excellent coffee, delicious fresh bagels and some fantastic sweet options in the cabinet.

We are now Saturday regulars at this cafe and, when visiting, take the opportunity to stock up on Best Ugly bagels and Kohu Rd icecream (both of which you can buy in bulk).

A great addition to New Lynn.

I met a friend here for coffee and was very impressed. Polite, friendly service and the young man answered all my questions. Nice presentation, the food came out on cute little bread boards. There is a caravan inside for the kids to play in, complete with books and toys. The cronuts are amazing! And you can get the beautiful Kohu Road ice cream by the scoop. The tables are nicely spaced out so you’re not listening in to the conversation next door (and plenty of room for push chairs!). Planning to go back here again today as I have to try the caramel slice!

The story behind the coffee makes this cafe somewhere you want to go anyway. However, when you get there, it is amazing. The coffee is roasted on-site, and is frankly beautiful! The cronuts are amazing though I would say that the food is a wee bit dear. However, for good reason. I like my coffee in a specific way, and they really work hard to give you what you want. Friendly, relaxed and open, this is my new favourite cafe.

It is child friendly, but unlike the chap posting before, I have had no issues with rambunctious children or foreign objects in the food, and whilst things like this will occasionally happen anywhere, it does seem like an inordinate dose of bad luck! I have to wonder if this is someone from a rival company. :-)

Anyway. I am off to meet a friend there now.

Rebranded as the Tannery, formerly Kohu Rd.

Yes it’s child friendly which is a good thing, but since when does allowing children running around a cafĂ© screaming with delight, playing hide and seek in the caravan mean its a fun experience for others? Yes, its the parents responsibility to get their kids to tone it down, but as a host you should remind some parents that there are other patrons who may not appreciate shouting kids when having a quiet coffee.

Coffee was excellent.

Food. Ummm… does finding a long blonde hair in your food sound like fun? When the manager? was informed of this the food was replaced. Sure. But how about throwing in a free coffee for the inconvenience rather than a limp apology? Or even better… an assured apology, followed by a ‘sir, of course we will replace your food and since you have to wait for it again we wont charge you for it? I suggest you ask your staff to wear a head net when preparing food.

Was I tempted to take home some beans or ice cream? Nope. At over $60 for a kg of beans and $20 per litre of ice cream I am not paying Herne Bay prices in New Lynn. As of 24/05/14 I see you didn’t enter the national ice cream competition…so to claim ‘best ice cream ever eaten’ on your website makes me chuckle.
