NileGuide Expert tip:
Sit in the window for a view of the park, but watch out for really sunny days when you can feel like you are melting.
This is one of my favourite secret places. Not that it's really a secret, but it never seems to be too crowded to enjoy. The coffee is fantastic and the staff are friendly. It's actually a bit of an original establishment on K' Road and the owners understand what Aucklander's want. Rock up in the morning for some good breakfast and coffee or head in at night for a glass of wine overlooking the park.
