“Crave cafe is one of my favourite places to visit in Kingsland. I find the staff warm and welcoming, the food delicious at a very reasonable price and the interior decor quite charming. I also love how they exhibit various works of different artists in the area. Makes for an...

“Its not very often you find a cafe that has style, and serves mint food that actually fills you up and that doesn’t cost the world. I ordered the full Crave, and was stoked with the mushrooms and the little tasty kransky sausages. I’ve been to Crave for brunch 3-4...

“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....

“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...

“We had a 60th birthday at Crave and had a fantastic evening. What a great venue, food and staff. The food was fantastic and the sliders (mini hamburgers) and pork belly in particular was a huge hit with everyone! The decor was perfect and the staff were great! Excellent! Even...

“Tip: You can hire Crave for private functions - my friend had her 21st there and it was the perfect venue.”

“As well as having a great vibe and attitude, Crave also has great Supreme coffee. It's all fair-trade - and smells incredibly delicious. Whenever I walk past on my way to the gym I have to work very hard not to be lured inside! Bonus: Crave also hosts little exhibitions...

“While located in quite an industrial area, Crave itself is also quite industrial looking - concrete floors, beams, quite a lot of open space - it fits nicely with the location. The decor however is quite mismatched and eclectic; stainless steel stools, coffee sack tables, a blackboard menu, lots of...

“Crave is a great cafe located in a semi industrial area of Morningside near Kingsland. Crave is a collective cafe - it was created by a group of locals and was never designed to make anyone rich. Instead all the profits go straight to combating poverty, so every time you...

“I love coming to Crave Cafe on Sundays, the people there are always friendly. The staff were very busy at the time but service was still very fast. The food presentation is excellent and tastes perfect. I really enjoy my Sundays at Crave.

“We recently contracted Crave to cater for a 60th with 50 or so guests. Working to a fixed budget, the Crave team brought the food and cooked it in our kitchen. This meant the food was fresh and delivered hot which made a huge difference. Crave added to the fun...

“Working well as a team, Crave prepared food in a timely manner (important for all functions) and served it well. Menu selection was very good, drawing much praise, and quantities were spot on, with about 10% extra than needed at serve time meaning we had extra for the end of...

“I have been coming to Crave for business meetings for a while now and I think this place deserves a review. The food is always good, well-cooked, servings are plentiful and the service is great - sometimes i barely blink and the food is on the table... The speed of...

“For the coffee…all i can say is these guys have it nailed - the presentation is outstanding and the coffee art is top of the line and i just love the style of this place. Crave is in the most unlikely of locations but seems to have a constant flow...

“Crave make a real effort in the local community, and they make a real effort to help other people. The Crave ethos is very community based. It seems to me that in this modern fast paced society we live in, many people have forgotten that there is a lot of...

“I think all cafes have their flavour of people, the cool people and the beautiful people. Crave has good people. That is not to say that they are not cool or beautiful. I think it fair to say many of them are, but thankfully they have the manners to be...

Adam, M

“So why am I a regular. The food and coffee? No. I can get great food and coffee at any number of places around Auckland. I will say that the food and coffee are excellent, but this has already been said by professional reviewers who know what they are talking...

Craving Change for India

They’re just a bunch of “crazy people”. Crazy people who swapped making coffees in their local Kingsland café Crave for a sixteen-day trip to India, as part of the charity Mad For Change. The charity, which aims to alleviate poverty and prostitution in Kolkata, is working in conjunction with the aid...

Peter Calder: Rediscovering the greater good

60s-sounding collective looking at ways for community to make connections, with no profit motive in sight. They served paella at Crave Cafe on Saturday evening. For 400. For free. As a business model, it doesn't exactly have "certain to succeed" written all over it. But Crave is no ordinary business....
