Honey Cafe, Takapuna - Cafe Review

Proving you don't need a view over Rangitoto to be considered one of Takapuna's very best, Honey Cafe is a character-laden destination that has already become a beacon for Takapuna's centrally-located consumers.


A menu that will have even the fussiest diners salivating, this all day cafe offers comfort food with some really cracking flavour combinations to savour - indeed a cafe where eggs are most definitely the hero ingredient. The poached eggs with haloumi and vine-ripened tomatoes won out for my dining companion, however I opted for the wonderfully fresh Honey tasting platter. Home made granola, yogurt breakfast salad and a poached egg to round things off. With a taste combination like this, it would be easy to convert to the philosophy that breakfast is the most important dish of the day.


With a seemingly endless line of waiting takeaway orders to contend with, I initially had misgivings about ordering a coffee. As it transpired, I needn't have taken a second thought - an expertly expressed coffee soon arrived in unison with our meals.


At the time of this visit, Honey Cafe had been open a matter of days yet it seems good word-of-mouth spreads far quicker than any advert, review or listing. An open space with the mid-winter sunlight streaming in, diners seemed universally happy, and staff seemed to thrive on it.


As mentioned earlier, service was quick without compromising on any levels of friendliness. Bonus marks for refilling our waters (twice no less) - an enthusiasm not often seen and to be thoroughly commended.


Every aspect of this cafe experience should be celebrated, but for a guilt-free breakfast alternative, the Honey tasting platter is the 'bee’s knees'.

The Bottom Line

A fantastic new cafe destination that can quite rightly be considered one of the finds of the year. Highly recommended.
