This site is no longer active; many of the cafes closed after the 2011 earthquake, and it was formally archived in 2019. Thanks for visiting!

Regular coffee drinker (daily) in the capital and also frequent cafes across New Zealand when travelling.
My main daily haunts are three Mojo cafes, Invincible in Willis Street, The Summit, Molesworth Street and Bond Street.

Review of Mojo Willis Street by Stefan on Thu, 17 Jan 2008:

I have been going to this Mojo cafe since it opened and have been very happy with the unswerving quality of my soya latte that i get on a daily basis.
I now bring my work colleagues and friends along to experience the mojo way.
Well done Simon and his great team. :-)


Review of Dizengoff by Stefan on Fri, 18 Jan 2008:

Great coffee and service accompanied by good food as well.
Busy place at breakfast time in the weekends... friendly and competent staff..


Review of Cafe Saint Paul by Stefan on Fri, 18 Jan 2008:

I went to this cafe a number of times and had a very average experience with the coffee, seem to like to serve coffee in rather large mugs which takes away the quality.
Very average service, coffee and food.


Review of Mojo Willis Street by Stefan on Fri, 02 May 2008:

I have decided to update my experiences at the Mojo Willis Street.
Unfortunetly of late, Mojo Willis as gone down hill, mainly to the current staff that are working there.
I am a regular, on a daily basis, sometimes up to 2-3 times per day i bring friends and colleagues to have a brew.
The quality of service has is either very good or poor the next day.
Service and friendliness of some staff are below the normal Mojo standard to which i have been accustom to.
Needs attention Mojo!!!


Review of Ohtel by Stefan on Thu, 22 May 2008:

I visited Ohtel for the first time on a Saturday afternoon.
Ohtel is a boutique hotel with a small cafe/bar on the ground floor.
Brilliant coffee and service.
Also offered manuka honey as an alternative to sugar which was a nice touch.

Worth a visit for something a little different from the norm.
Nice retro 50-60's furniture.
