Tucked away in Auckland's Morningside, Crave Cafe is a favourite with the locals, serving great coffee and food in an interesting and creative environment.

Crave Cafe is dedicated to getting to know its community – and their outstanding, fair trade Supreme coffee, sumptuous food, and engaging, friendly staff are brilliant at helping build local connections.

Favourite dishes from the delicious menu include herb-infused creamy mushrooms on potato cakes (a real hit!) and the unmissable Rossmay: A generous helping of smokey spice roasted cross-cut aubergine, smashed potato cakes, maple bacon, poached egg and fresh green salad. Or pick from the cabinets, which are filled with fresh, wholesome salads and sweet baked goods on the daily. Vegetarian and gluten-free options are available.

Crave Cafe is a not-for-profit, which means all profits go towards the community and helping destroy poverty. Ask about their humanity projects and feel good about paying them a visit.

Internet has really grown into a detective on its own. Peoples privacy,loved ones or co workers,just to mention a few needs not to be intruded BUT realizing and satisfying our curiosity sets us free from the thoughts we drown ourselves in... This right here is an edge into those confusing state of mind we find ourselves. I've stumbled upon couple of internet hackers and spies who turn out to be scammers not until PRIME came my way and I found what I thought was lost...

Worth the wait

Lovely sweet scones, lovely coffee, lovely atmosphere, lovely ethos! A great little community cafe.

Had lunch at Crave today. Very yummy - great fast service. Very impressed! I think they have improved since we came last. We’ll definitely come again

Every time I have a coffee at Crave, I fall head over heels in love with this gem of a not-for-profit establishment in Sandringham. Just a stone's throw from Eden Park, Crave is the place to go if you're craving good coffee and want to give someone else the same treat. The cool thing is that you can pay it forward by paying for a coffee order, which the friendly staff then bank, and give to someone in the community in need. Awesome!

Best cafe in town!

Great food, awesome friendly staff. Good community projects.

Won a $100 voucher from Localist for Crave, and finally went and it was so great! Coffee was amazing, and the Brioche french toast was to-die-for, will definitely be back!

Congrats Ashleigh. Stoked you got to experience this awesome local thanks to Localist. Keep those recommendations coming!

Their cheese scones are a great weekend treat and don't get me started on the French toast! See you this weekend.
