Sometimes grumpy cats/great bagels »

5.0 Stars

Formally known as Atomic Cafe, this is one of the older cafes in Auckland that lead the way of the now fully fledged coffee culture that Auckland has!

Come on a Thursday or Friday night for live music. If you're lucky it will be The Jews Brothers Band, who formed serendipitously on night at Atomic and have been doing their take on klemzer tunes and Edith Pief covers ever since.

There are also two extremely fat and often grumpy cats that depending on their mood may cuddle up with you or bite you when you try to pat them.

The coffee where is strong and they serve double shots unless you ask for a single. They serve Mamata bagels (made in bagelry a few blocks away) which I think have reached bagel perfection. Try the raisin & cinnamon toasted with cream cheese and jam for a perfect pick me up.

The courtyard in the back is to be avoided on weekends as their is a childrens area that can get a bit annoying.
