Coffee is ok, pretty good not amazing - think they use Kokako coffee. But the cafe itself is so unique - in my experience anyway - feels like a small version of that cafe in friends! no jokes. It's like a living room and the environment definitely encourages interaction with fellow coffee lovers.
I recently discovered Remedy. I'd noticed it but thought it looked a little too 'cool' so never gave it a try. Well finding myself at the top of Queen Street and in need of caffeine early one morning I bit the bullet and went inside. I was totally wrong! ... well I was right in that they are cool but they do it well and it certainly doesn't seem pretentious or exclusive. Remedy is so comfortable and the perfect place to get your morning fix. I had my first ( and second and third...) Cronut there and managed to fill 4 loyalty cards in 5 weeks. I might have a problem :)
Some of the best staff in Auckland and definitely some of the best coffee. It's a relaxed place that really reminds me a lot of the old Library bar that used to be down in the Viaduct. They're quirky and yes.. cool and I probably shouldn't even write this review because it's such a pain when all of the seats are full! LOL.
Remedy Coffee is one of my favourite cafes in Auckland. It's really cute inside, lots of books (and a book swap service which is great for travellers) and board games. My friend Eddie and I meet up there to play Connect 4 at lunchtime sometimes, sitting in their little window seat :)
The staff are super friendly and always take the time to say goodbye when you leave, no matter how busy they are.
Really nice hot chocolate in interesting mugs and I would really recommend the chicken and tarrogan sandwich. Delish! They're also environmentally conscious and if you bring in your own takeaway cup I think the coffee is a bit cheaper...
The only reason I didn't give Remedy 5 stars is that it can be a bit cold in there when they open up all the windows at the front, especially in the mornings. Having said that, I'm sure that will be a massive bonus in the summer!
