7 Best Coffee Shops in Auckland

7 Best Coffee Shops in Auckland

We had some of the best coffee we’ve ever had while in New Zealand, and we visited some really amazing coffee shops while in Auckland.

We were honestly so surprised with how much we loved Auckland!

From the city life, to the beautiful nature, to of course, the coffee, Auckland has so much to offer.

A lot of the coffee shops I’ll be mentioning are in the Auckland CBD (Central Business District), which is the city centre.

Here are some of the absolute best coffee shops you need to visit during a visit to Auckland!

Be sure to also follow me on Instagram and TikTok – I share a lot more content on those platforms that don’t make it to the blog!

Best coffee shops in Auckland

Rumours Coffee in Auckland CBD, New Zealand

Rumours Coffee

This minimalist coffee shop serves up classic espresso drinks alongside more unique drinks.

The Rumours Iced White with Demerara Syrup is one of the absolute best drinks I’ve ever tasted, and I’m still dreaming about it to this day.

They also have other interesting drinks, like their Rumours Espresso Tiramisu and Apple Cinnamon Oat Foam.

There’s also minimal seating if you’re looking to enjoy your coffee indoors!

We mostly got takeaway coffee to walk around with during our trip, and we realized that’s probably more of a Canadian/American thing.

Rumours is also a slightly newer spot – they opened in mid-2022!

LOCATION: 19 O’Connell Street, Auckland CBD, Auckland 1010, New Zealand

Kompass Coffee in Auckland CBD, New Zealand

Kompass Coffee

You’ll find espresso and tea-based drinks at this Korean-inspired coffee shop in Auckland.

Kompass also offers up freshly-baked treats from local bakers, as well as their own handmade canelé.

We got the Iced Matcha Latte and Black Sesame Einspanner, and both were amaze.

They’ve got a decent amount of seating inside as well as patio seating out front, and pretty much all of the seats were taken up when we visited!

LOCATION: 2 Kitchener Street, Auckland CBD, Auckland 1010, New Zealand

Millers Coffee

Miller’s has been roasting up Italian-style coffee since the ’80s, and their blend has actually remained the same since they began back in 1988.

You can enjoy their exceptional coffee in their rustic, vintage-inspired space.

You’ve also gotta try their decadent handmade chocolates, some of which are even made with their own coffee!

LOCATION: 31 Cross Street, Auckland CBD, Auckland 1010, New Zealand

BESPOKE coffee specialist

Stop into this hidden gem in Auckland for their amazing coffee and small menu of all-day breakfast options.

From lattes to cappuccinos, they serve up really delicious, well-made coffee.

The space is very little, but they do have a small amount of indoor and outdoor seating for you to chill out and enjoy a brew.

And even though their coffee shop is tiny, they’ve made the space really beautiful and aesthetically-pleasing!

LOCATION: 72 Albert Street, CBD, Auckland 1010, New Zealand

Allpress Roastery Auckland

This popular New Zealand roastery has been roasting specialty coffee for over three decades, and you’ll find their coffee at cafés all around the world!

They also have their very own café in Auckland, where you can sip on brews and indulge in sandwiches and small bites.

You’ll of course also find their beans in quite a few coffee shops around Auckland!

LOCATION: 8 Drake Street, Freemans Bay, Auckland 1010, New Zealand

Remedy Coffee

Pop into this warm, homey café for good coffee and good food.

Remedy’s specialty is single-origin coffee sourced from local roasters, and you can enjoy it as filter coffee or cold brew.

For eats, you’ll find a selection of bagel options alongside other breakfast and lunch bites, like their Bacon & Egg Roll and Kimcheese Toastie.

There is limited seating inside the café and it actually gets quite busy, so arrive early or order takeaway!

LOCATION: 1 Wellesley Street West, Auckland CBD, Auckland 1010, New Zealand


This adorable café has the most stunning back patio, and they’re most well-known for their delicious brunch.

Alongside their tasty food, they’ve also got fantastic coffee.

They’ve got all your typical espresso fixings, from americanos to cappuccinos.

If you’re in the mood for brunch, you’ll find delicious dishes like their Smashed Avo, Egg Toulouse, and Chilli Beans with Baked Egg.

LOCATION: 43 High Street, Auckland CBD, Auckland 1010, New Zealand

All of the coffee shops we visited in Auckland had non-dairy milk options, which was really nice (as someone who’s lactose-intolerant).

Another interesting thing we noticed was that quite a few places offered iced lattes… with ice cream!

We didn’t end up trying any during our visit, though. Definitely something we’ll try on our next visit to Auckland!
