Enjoy a café environment like no other. A mix of sophistication & simplicity to ensure individuals of all ages feel welcome, relaxed and comfortable. Whether you are looking for a place to celebrate, somewhere for some well deserved time out or simply looking for great food & coffee – The Library is the place to visit.
The café offers two distinctive areas:
The main dining room exudes fun and vibrancy to entertain energetic and inquisitive minds and bodies in an indoor and outdoor family safe environment.
The second room, a luxuriously intimate reading lounge offers a quiet haven where guests can sit back, relax and read the latest newspapers, magazines or one of many of the coffee table books at hand. Although family friendly you can be rest assured that the separate reading room provides a peaceful environment for a pleasant chat amongst family, friends and colleagues – this room is just perfect for a business meeting.
This magnificent building offers two uniquely designed seating areas.
On arrival you will be greeted by elevated seating at the top of the grand entrance which offers all day sun and a prime position to enjoy what the day has to offer.
Step inside the building and make your way to the landscaped courtyard and expansive grassed area which offers a smoke-free zone and even a peep of the harbour. This fully fenced purposely designed area offers an inbuilt slide and play area in a safe & secure environment – a truly unique find in such a central Auckland location.
“We had a fantastic time visiting the Library – the food was great and it was such a nice change to enjoy a peaceful (non McDonalds!)coffee while the kids played. See you again soon! Parents of 3 under 4.”

“I give The Library Cafe 3 'G's. Great ambience, great food, great service. It's very refreshing to be able to find an easy to find & easy to get to location, with heaps of parking to relax and enjoy an excellent brunch and some great coffee. I will definitely be paying them a return visit.”

“We have just got back from having a late lunch at Library Cafe. Thank you very much for offering such a great service for people with allergies. We hardly ever eat out with our daughter as it is always so difficult to tell if the people who are serving you or preparing the food actually "get it". When you came and asked about our preference in bread I wanted to hug you! Our daughter is nearly ten and after dealing with all the issues to do with food allergies for the last nine years it is great that she is able to find places where she doesn't have to apologise or be embarassed for having to ask. As a Mum it is great that some one else is also watching out for us so that I can relax too. Thanks again! We will definitely be back - the drive from Devonport a small price to pay for a great meal out.”

“PS. Coffee, food and service was excellent too!”
“What a wonderful place you have there! I popped in for the first time earlier today with my 11 month old and was so refreshed by the great setup you have - I wanted to let you know how much we enjoyed ourselves! Your staff were so friendly, your play area was super and your coffee was divine!! Thank you so much, it is so nice to find a cafe that is child friendly and clean, as well as having such a welcoming and relaxing atmosphere. I'm not usually one to give feedback, but I was so happy I stumbled across you today, you really made my day and you'll probably see me again tomorrow! Well done!”
