Reviews

Here's what people are saying about us...

“Crave Cafe serves up quality coffee in an edgy industrial-style venue where the polished concrete floor and the rawness connects well with the concept of cravings. This charitable cafe is located on the outskirts of Kingsland (technically Morningside), and all of Crave’s profits go to fund local community and global poverty issues. Also . . . check out the awesome collection of espresso makers on the centre table! Beautiful food. As if you needed a reason for coffee… ”

“Great food, great staff, great venue. An oasis in the heart of the city - it's more than a cafe - it's a community”

“Very impressive and welcoming for dinner with friends, I had been to Crave before as a cafe, but strongly recommend it as a dinner venue too. Excellent food, service and reason for being.”

“I love a good salad and these guys have four or five really good ones. The roasted bean salad has a kafir lime dressing and is perfect for a winter lunch. The scrambled eggs with salmon has a bit of cream cheese tossed in which is outstanding. They specialize on coffee as well (cuppings and all) and have the best hang out / work space (free wifi) I can find in this area (Kingsland / Mt Eden). ”

“Great cafe, the food and coffee has consistently been top notch! The protein shakes are also great. The decor is art deco mixed with modern, eclectic but it works! Service is excellent. Have been here for an after hours function also and was very impressed. Love your work keep it up!  ”

“Ate there today what a find - perfect coffee and had the Full Crave brekkie. Eggs, mushrooms and bacon were to die for. Service was fast and friendly and the art was great. It had a real laid back atmosphere that i didn’t really want to disappear back to work. Great community initiative I am a local from Kingsland and will definitely be going back to supports. ”
