The mochas from the BOX Cafe in Aotea Square, Auckland are usually full flavoured and adorned with nice foam art, perfect for those who like to Instagram their beverages to their friends.

Spotted these gorgeous cupcakes at Box in Aotea Square today for Auckland University capping. Bravo for beautiful community spirit Box.

Love the location. Great service and outdoor heaters!

Good food, reasonable prices and outdoor heaters for winter

Great coffee, all menu items are very well priced and cheap compared to competitors. Highly recommend the brownie!

Great spot to get a coffee, enjoy free wifi and look out across Aotea Square. They also do a good happy hour on Thursdays and Fridays.

It's not often you find a sammy for under $5, especially in Auckland's CBD, but this 'Italian bread' from BOX cost me $4.90 (or thereabouts), and made a great late breakfast. The balcony area's a lovely spot on a mild day, wifi too if you're keen to get some work done away from your desk.

Award winning barista with the cutest and best latte art. Coffees are just as good too of course!!!

Located at the entrance to Auckland's Aotea Centre, overlooking the square, BOX Café and Bar is a fantastic spot to meet friends or colleagues, or to simply grab a quiet lunch on your own. Hooking up to their free wifi is as simple as making a purchase, grabbing a seat and saying 'I do' to their Ts & Cs. Notable mention goes to the EIGHT different flavours of whoopie pies ($5 each), by Grey Lynn artisans Whoopie, on offer - however there are plenty of other food options if you're more of a savoury type.

I really enjoy popping here for a coffee and cake or for a pre-gig beer.  I really enjoy both the indoor and outdoor spaces,  the decor is quirky and really fits the location. The coffee is good and the service is fast and friendly.  They have a good choice of counter food and Whoopies... Whoopies I'm not sure about so i'll have to try a second really don't know if they are fabulous or a bit like a stale cake...
