Reviews for Late Night Diner
6th June 2013
Pity Jackie had a bad time. We popped in at about 5.30pm.
Loved the menu – good old fashioned warm winter food, I had an awesome toasted cheese sandwich. My friend enjoyed her burger and chips. I don’t think the prices were overrated.
Service was spot on, however there were very few people there at that time.
Loved the Blues and Rock n Roll music, the decor, the outfits of the waiters.
I’ll be back!!!

Loving this latest addition to the food scene in Auckland. My first thought was that it was trying to copy Depot (waiters wearing braces, white tiles on kitchen walls) without the attention to detail (bag hooks under the bench area), but this tiny eatery has an exciting menu, from grilled sandwiches ($8-$12) to soups ($8-$10.50) to proper meals ($11-$22). How about rabbit pot pie, or crispy skinned fish on popcorn grits? Or if you are after something sweet, there are deep-fried oreos with a side of milkshake ($11), and a couple of other less exotic choices. The wide selection of drinks not only includes beers and wines, but also hard shakes ($15, chocolate milkshke with rum, Grand Marnier, Fernet Branca,…) and cocktails like the Pumpkin Pie Martini ($16). We have enjoyed everything we have had here so far, though the fried chicken was a bit burnt in places. We particularly liked their take on coleslaw, which included chopped dates, lime and mint. It could be difficult to find a seat in the three booths or at a bench, but Auckland needs more places like this!

Stopped in here after a late night movie downtown with my partner and his friend, I thought I’d go to this new diner I’d read about in the Herald, rave reviews.
It was not to be. Terrible service. Will not be returning.
Reuben sandwich, sour and unappetising
Burger & Fries, pattie OK, filling not so, fries fine
Drinks, expensive even by Ponsonby standards
Overpriced and overrated.
Unless you are going here really really late when everything else is shut just go to a real restaurant if you want good food.
Have lived in Freemans Bay for 13 years, there are a lot of other great options nearby – I can vouch for this area.
