First impressions - Wow. Bloggers Hannah and Eleanor have created something truly stunning hidden away in Kingsland. I think it would be the perfect venue to hire out for a party or a dinner. I'm a regular but recently the menu changed and I thought it high time I wrote a review - the Bhudda Bowl salad I had was so yum and satisfying, and I keep going back for their 'signature' aztec hot choccy. It's always good having chats to the girls too, they are very knowledge about wellbeing and wholefoods. The street parking can be tricky but it's worth it. Highly recommend.

I adore this little cafe! A beautiful retreat from New North Road. So pleased it's in my neighbourhood. Amazing food. Love the new salads. And they have supreme coffee which is the best. I like that it's healthy but hearty. I've had great service from all the girls in there.xx

I also found the service lacking a little at Mondays. Walking down the driveway you see the cute little shop lovely plants etc and then arrive at the counter where nothing really happens. I ordered a coffee which was small but good, but was not tempted by the food in the cabinet, partly due to the fact that no-one seemed interested in whether I ate or not.

I would give 5 stars if the people serving were a little more friendly. But otherwise the food is absolutely amazing, there is a perfect balance of non-vegetarian and vegan food and desserts :)

This is one of the newest eateries on the block serving up delicious wholesome organic food.

Their menu changes daily and they have a cabinet filled with goodies, from nut milks and kombucha to vegan cheesecakes from The Raw Kitchen and yummy coffees! Make sure you try one with cashew nut milk!

I think owners Eleanor Ozich (of Petite Kitchen) and Hannah Horton (of Health Yeah) are doing a brilliant job at running this cafe.

I can’t wait to go back!

In recent months, the whole food and raw diet trend has taken NZ by storm providing everyday individuals with food and information from the "gurus" and leaders of the pack who run blogs, and cafes etc about how to nourish the body from inside out. I would argue then, why it seems to be that these people are so unfriendly, sour and apparently bored looking. People look up to you gurus, so be friendly.

What I appreciate about Mondays is that is a nice balance. Some dishes contain meat and seafood, and they also do seemingly normal coffees as well as the usual raw slices and smoothies.

I then found a couple hairs baked into my fritatta, I don't like returning my food as it is awkward, so I just pulled them out and continued to eat. Once I had finished, I approach the counter to let the staff know (some people get pretty upset about hair and food mixing) and stood there for an incredibly uncomfortable 30 seconds while the staff member just smiled at me although I was clearly trying to usher her over. When she did eventually come over i said to her that I had found hair in my meal to which she replied "Oh, that shouldn't have been in there" and laughed. No sorry, no talk of money back, no removing of fritatta from the cabinet.

The atmosphere was much like a cheap chain store cafe. good music, great spot, but no one chatting at all... in fact it seemed as if both us and the people next to us felt the need to whisper for some bizarre reason.

At $45 for two small savory items and 2 bottled juices, I suppose I expected big things, instead it was really quite "normal". The white bean and salmon salad was delicious, and an amazing Kasundi too. The fritatta was nice, the board mentioned a herb side salad... I was marginally disappointed to receive a bundle of rocket drizzled with oil.

Kingsland has got some great cafes on offer. I would not return to Mondays. I would instead recommend spending $45 at LOOP on a glass of wine, and a GF DF main of epic proportio

I went to Mondays for the first time last week with my partner as it was my birthday and had been wanting to try it out since reading good things about it, and with us both being gluten free. I was a bit disappointed at the size of the place and the parking situation BUT that was the only down side! The food was amazing! I had a Turkish style salad with their GF take on tabbouleh (the cous cous being replaced with quinoa) with hummus,egg, olives, little parcels of avocado,pistachios and some yummy dressing wrapped in mesculan leaves. SO many flavours! My partner had a vegetable&bacon quiche and we shared a cashew cacao drink and an apple crumble type muffin afterwards. YUM YUM YUM !! The service was quick and very friendly too,so it felt very cosy in the little space that is Mondays :) We will definitely be back again, but i'm guessing if you on a weekend it will be an absolute bun fight to get a seat.. a gluten free bun at that...:)

I was really excited when I heard about Mondays' opening, however despite being back several times (hoping each time to enjoy it more), I have been pretty underwhelmed so far. My companions each time have all agreed. Yes the building is really cute & pretty, but the food (sweet & savoury) has been a bit average - feels like what I would whip up at home on short notice without having the right ingredients on hand. The staff have never seemed very friendly or welcoming.

All in all, a bit disappointing, especially since I have read the blogs - & especially enjoyed Healthyeah. If you want wholefoods or vegan food, maybe stick to Little Bird.. : (

Lovely new cafe in Kingsland that may be a bit hard to find but certainly well worth it once you are there. Vibrant, frendly staff and lovely coffee will do that to you but it's the food that you should head there for. If you get the chance, try Mondays honey almond and chocolate rasberry cake - so, so worth it! Mondays might be my find of the year so far.
