Ponsonby institution Santos Cafe has been serving up top-notch food and superb coffee since 1995.
With a sunny courtyard out back and what's arguably the best Eggs Benedict in Auckland, it's a great place to lounge with friends or grab their famously silky cup of coffee. They also do half-serve breakfasts for those who aren't quite hungry enough for their generous full portions.

Santos are famous for their World Cup Party atmosphere and for screening all the Brazil games. It is a fun and entertaining place to watch a Brazil game. And you an get a great breakfast and a perfect coffee to help you through an early game. I can only imagine the party atmosphere at Santos will be ramped given that Brazil are hosting the World Cup. Love this place and I'll definitely watch a Brazil game or two here.
Santos can hold down the coffees. In fact I’ve never had a bad coffee there, perfect extraction and silky milk. I hadn’t ever eaten there before though so I figured it was about time to give the menu the once over. I opted for the haloumi salad which was delicious. I’m a big fan of the salty fried cheese and this was cooked to perfection. The light meal was just what I was after. I’m looking forward to exploring the rest of the menu to see what other delights I can discover.
I spend a lot of time in Ponsonby but hadn't stepped into Santos, unbelievably. I was drawn in by the new menu and can highly recommend the Feta Salad - lots of crispy whitlof, avocado, parsley and creamy feta with dressing on the side and a fresh ciabatta bun. The coffee was great and there was plenty of space to sit quietly in and enjoy the meal. I will be back.
