The Fridge Cafe reviewed by Victoria T.
Fridge is always delicious, friendly and best of all child friendly. I'd go as far to say they have the best cabinet food in Auckland, but their menu is excellent too, perfect omelette, the best eggs bene and beautiful french toast. LOVE.
Ironique reviewed by Antique A.
We love eating here. Great food, it's certainly more spacious than it looks as there is a huge area outside, covered and uncovered, and its an awesome child friendly venue out the back - ask for the large box of toys. I normally ask for one milkshake but ask for it in two small glasses. And they happily oblige. Fully recommend this venue for brunch or lunch.
Catroux Cafe reviewed by Helene R.
Westmere cafe Catroux not only has a great blackboard selection and amazing cabinet food, but also one of the best kid’s brunch menus in town. All offerings are priced at six dollars and there is always something yum to choose from like the traditional boiled egg and soldier combo and yummy French toast with bacon and maple syrup. The sandpit is an added bonus!
Frolic Cafe reviewed by Mark A.
Frolic is across the road from the awesome kids playground at Cornwall Park. We regularly use it for takeaway coffees whilst at the park. If you've got an early riser, Frolic opens at 7:30am and will wake you right up. The coffee is top Auckland standard, that is to say World Class. But Frolic is much more than just coffee. Arguably one of the best cafes in the big little city, the food is excellent and it's a favourite for brunch/lunch if we get the opportunity. Sit outside and watch the world rush by, sit inside and absorb the artwork or supervise the kids on the covered deck out back. Sweet as.
Little King Cafe reviewed by Clara D.
Entering Little King is like walking into a real life Pinterest board, with home-made, vintage touches everywhere. From the stroller ramp and dedicated play area, to the changing table in the bathroom, it's also perfectly tailored for mums and their kids, who are clearly a core customer base for this Milford cafe. I loved the menu as soon as I read it, and while I was tempted by the intriguing chicken waffle, I opted for the seafood chowder instead at my first visit, which was served in a cute cast enamel pot with garlic bread. Another great cafe addition to the shore, and good luck finding a table because it's already very popular!
