We decided that we would go for a drive, as we both had the same day off this week. We haven’t seen much of north west Auckland so chose to take a trip up to Helensville.
Not knowing much about the local area we came across this cafe on South Head road called Macnut Cafe. What an experience and not a great one at that! As Trevor was extremely hungry we decided to give this place a go. If you are ever in this situation keep on driving. Customer service is non existent in this establishment nor is the upkeep of the premises. Even at this point we ( Trevor) decided to give the food a chance.
The menu was basic, nothing in comparison to what they advertise on their website.
Trevor ordered bacon and egg burger more like a grease burger and Gaila – mushroom burger, received on a chipped plate. Dry chips with no seasoning.


We were given a half a bottle of water with dirty glasses. I don’t think we have ever left a place so quickly after receiving the food and that includes McDonald’s.
It’s a shame, the place has potential.
