Since the addition of my partner’s puppy, finding a cafe with outdoor seating that is dog friendly is crucial for our weekend lunch, aka coffee fix. Cafe Monet matches all the criteria, the food is good, the attentive service is excellent, free parking (!) and a beautiful courtyard, an ideal venue for a lazy sunny afternoon.
My huge bacon and eggs burger had ample filling including crispy strips of bacon, two perfectly fried eggs and salad served with a side of this amazingly phenomenal tomato chutney which I slathered all over the toasted bun.
Although the food was excellent, I can not say the same regarding my cup of coffee. Served luke warm with too much froth, this was the only let-down in our otherwise excellent meal.
Cafe Monet is a popular spot amongst the locals in Remuera, and is constantly bustling with patrons. With the friendly courteous service and scrumptious food, you can see why. Plus, free parking is always a bonus.
