My first impression of Rockfield was that it seemed like your typical Auckland cafe, especially upon looking at the menu. However, the creamy mushrooms and muffins packed a massive flavour punch, the portion sizes were very fair against the price I paid for them, and the food is a big step up from the usual cafe.
We are lucky to have this cafe so close to home, and have visited it about every two weeks on average for the last 3 years. We always go for food ordered from the menu rather than cabinet food as they have a wide variety of delicious & well presented food at a good price. I particularly enjoy the corn fritters, fish & chips, french toast, nachos, open sandwiches or honey soy beef salad; my wife enjoys the salads, corn fritters and creamy mushrooms. We have never been disappointed with a meal. It can be busy during lunchtime on weekdays but quieter on Saturdays. The decor/atmosphere isn't anything special but the food certainly makes up for this. Very friendly staff.
I had the rice roll pack - $6.50/pack, each contains 3x rolls. The fresh rolls are bursting with crispy salad greens and soft vermicelli covered in sweet sauce. Tried Chicken (was marinated in some kind of sauce, was nice but it was on a bit of dry side) and Prawn (liked these better but that could be because I like prawns since I’m not allowed to have’em – got the high cholesterol issue...). Not the easiest thing to eat – started with a fork, ended up with fingers and heaps of noodles on my lap. It makes you feel so healthy and skinny, you feel like you can have whatever for the dinner later.
