This cafe is in the domestic airport and cleverly positioned on the way to the gates. You can stop and have a bite to eat from the cabinet food or order pizza or a menu including Eggs Benedict. You can grab a coffee or beverages of every description. There is plenty of seating inside the cafe but if you want gourmet then this is not the place to dine.
The service is way below average and I feel that some of our cafes including this one need to employ staff that actually want to work in customer service. I do hope that not too many of our tourists come to this cafe and think that the rest of NZ cafes have this lack of customer service.
The food was kind of slapped on the plate and did not look that appealing.
- The Montreal – this was not the best Montreal I have tasted.
- The eggs – were overdone and sadly not very runny.
- The salmon – was okay but not quite enough.
- The spinach – was soggy and watery.
- The hollandaise – was straight out of the bottle, bland and blah!
- The muffins – were okay.
- The hash brown – was okay, but it was a bit tasteless.
Would we go again?
If I was at the airport at breakfast time I would probably just go to the Mackers actually.
Style: Classic 5/10.
Taste: 3/10. The meal was bland and tasteless.
Originality: 4/10 – Nothing special here.
Value: 7/10. Both the Benedict (bacon) and Montreal (salmon) came with a wee bit of spinach which was nice. They were both $15.50 which is reasonable. The sides were $3-$4.50 I believe but cannot confirm.
Eggs: (how good they were): 3/10.
Overall score: 4/10
