Cuisine: A La Carte, Cafe, New Zealand

You don’t have to be rude to eat here...but it helps.

One thing Rude Boy is not shy of is colour! Never was there a more joyous eatery. The giant paintings of budgerigars and butterflies that adorn the walls are complemented by vibrant blue floors. Hanging plants drift down from the ceiling whilst the cakes on display prove an irresistible distraction.

They also serve scrummy food, including breakfast favourites like a full English and more alternative options like a kimchi omelette and limoncello and cream cheese hot cake. Suddenly muesli looks very boring. Enjoy cheat day at lunchtime with their Rude Boy fried chicken or keep it healthy with their salmon citrus salad.

And if you’re a true millennial, you’ll get a smoothie. Will it be the Berry White Smoothie or Hella Green that’s bursting with spinach, kale and vitamins vitamins vitamins! Alternatively, you can never go wrong with freshly squeezed OJ.

Fantastic service, the food tasted amazing & was presented beautifully on the plate. We really enjoyed the Portobello Benedict and the Rudie’s Big Breakfast, cabinet food looked lovely too.

Delicious food, good coffee, really friendly staff, cool vibe. Ordered egg bene and dumpling and were both decent. Keen to try more food next time!

Very happy to have discovered this place! The menu was interesting, and the food was fabulous! My partner had the hot cakes, which were probably the best hot cakes we have ever tasted (and I am not one to exaggerate). The bacon benedict was lovely also, and featured a spinach holandaise and some brocollini (sounds weird, but try it, it works). Coffee was terrific, as was the service. Will definitely be recommending this one!

Absolutely amazing breakfast - it was probably one of the best most imaginative breakfasts I have had.
We had the big breakfast - so many textures and tastes and not just your average big breakfast. We also got the hot cakes WOW it looked like a piece of art and tasted incredible. Even the eggs Benedict had fried little capers on the side the attention to detail was second to none.
Will definitely be making this a regular brunch date.

Let me just start off with this: I’m very very glad that first table afforded us this opportunity to try out a restaurant/cafe without paying full price. I think this is my first less than 5 star review on here. There were positives and negatives. Coffee was amazing, so was the hot chocolate, which is a bit rare these days for some reason. The cabinet food looked great, but since they weren’t included with the deal, we decided to stick with menu items. The big breakfast had positives and negatives, nothing that stands out in either direction, so it was a solid meh. Best part: broccolini (but that doesn’t take a chef to make good), worst part is the sauce that’s spread under everything. It doesn’t go with anything on the plate yet it’s everywhere on the plate. It’s like a detox smoothie had a baby with some new world chutney, it just simply doesn’t work. Not even on its own. And pretty much ruined the rest of the plate. The beef burger was quite greasy, and overall meh as well. I personally liked the waffle chips and the sauce, but since it’s not my meal, I should leave it with what the person who ate said: “ well that was underwhelming and overly greasy”. So the conclusion is, definitely come for their coffee, but maybe skip the menu and try out their cabinet food.

The vibe of Rude Boy is very cool, the waiter we had was lovely and accommodating, and the coffee I had was delightful. Only two criticisms! They didn't have very much in terms of vegan options for my friend, and also ran out of the broccolini for her dish so she wasn't left with much at all. Great food though, and we really enjoyed our time there.

What a fantastic breakfast! My husband and I each had the Portobello Benedict which was delicious and our two kids shared a big breakfast. We loved that the meals came with tasty broccoli! Service was top notch, friendly and efficient and coffee was good. Will definitely go back when next visiting Auckland and so should you!

Such an incredible experience right from the beginning. My GPS took us to the other end of the road, my kids and I were wandering the street trying to find Rude Boy without luck. I phoned and got an awesome guy who went out stood in the middle of the road for me so I could see him and know where to go. He was awesome the entire time, all the staff were, but he was the best - so friendly, happy and incredibly good at his job. The food was beautifully presented and just as delicious, our guy was right - he told us all the meals were really amazing looking and tasting. We all loved our meals so much, with lots of mmmmms and wows through the eating. The coffee was great as well. We also couldn’t pass up a sweet treat from the cabinet as we left, it was awesome to be able to choose from a few vegan options. We’ll totally be back and telling others about Rude Boy!

Oooh my boyfriend and I loved our breakfast at Rude Boy's, we both went big breakfast (him without mushrooms as he's mental but they happily offered him an extra item to replace them) and we were stuffed! They food was incredible and everyone was smiley and approachable. We will certainly be back, the table next to us had the hot cakes and I can't get them out my head so will be booking again very soon, to satisfy that craving.

Highly recommend this rude restaurant, haha, so rude that were blocked by rain but still offered by the deal. Foods were so nice looking and beautifully cooked, big portion, fresh ingredients. Must try the mushrooms, juicy and tasty. Attentive service, cosy ambience, will absolutely come back and try other dishes.

Walking in past the amazing array of cabinet food was an excellent start to the day. It was a struggle not to get one of each cabinet item but we managed to push away the temptation and made it to the once again fantastic menu.

Great vibe and the food was to die for, the only trouble was we wanted to try all of it so we will have to make another few appearances in order to sample the entire menu.

Yummy yummy yum yum! It was three of us from work having a quick social lunch - none of us had been to Rude Boy before and it did not disappoint. We were recommended the fried chicken so all three of us ordered it and agreed it was outstanding! Drinks were delicious too - my chai latte could have been a bit more flavoursome - but the turmeric latte was the perfect balance of earthy and sweet with a bit of added coconut sugar.
We also took back some amazing treats from the counter which we enjoyed for afternoon tea - can highly recommend the peanut butter cup.
Loved it! Will definitely be going there again :) Thanks Rude Boy!
