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.

A lovely spot, drenched in sun. We chose a table outside. The service was great! Attentive and friendly. Food arrived sporadically. Vegan option was ok. Would love to see more options on the menu. Loved the paleo slice as a takeaway treat. We wish you all the best Rude Boy Deli!

Great food, we pretty much ordered the whole menu. Top choices were pork belly baos and pasta dish.

The service and experience here was excellent for dinner. I recommend the short rib ragu spaghetti, best dish of a nice assortment. Lovely presentations as well, and expedient. Thank you!

Very first time using firsttable and we weren’t disappointed. $108 worth of drinks and food to $54 has to be a great time. The waitress was so nice, recommended to us what we should try. The best braised short ragu spaghetti i have ever had. Hubby and I thoroughly enjoyed ourselves. Then we went into the night to explore the CBD.

Fabulous service - we arrived early but there were no issues with that. Staff very helpful, the food was very very good and great value for money - would go back and we highly recommend Rude Boy to all first table members.

Great food, like the format of small plates so that you get a range of flavours and can share as a family. My favourite was the vegan salad ( does not sound great, but the amazing dressing and crispy tofu were divine), my husband loved the pork belly bao and our son thought the calamari was great too. Highly recommend a causal evening meal here.

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.

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.

We managed to get a booth to ourselves away from the windows so that was nice, weren't sure what would be the dinner menu until we got there, it felt limited with options, especially for my partner who is vegetarian but we both enjoyed our meals. We were hoping to get the worst service because the name of the place is called Rude Boy and thought it was a gimmick but this isn't that kind of place. Had a great time none the less!

The dinner menu was not very extensive but covered enough bases for us. We ordered the squid rings, vegan salad and wedges. The squid rings and vegan salad were awesome. The tofu was probably some of the best tofu I've ever had and was paired amazingly with the assortment of vegetables in the salad. The dressing was also delicious. The squid rings were very tender and had a nice crispy coating. The wedges were the letdown. They weren't crispy, but rather floppy and some a bit undercooked. Additionally, they didn't really have much flavour which wasn't helped by the sour cream you were meant to dip them in.

Service was lovely and I enjoyed my time here overall. I'd definitely be back to have the salad again and can only see Rude Boy becoming more popular.

Really enjoyed the food, yum flavours! Excellent service. The meals were quite light, not a big filling dinner meal (we went for dinner) but would have been perfect for lunch. Will definitely be back

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.

Rudy Boy is a really lovely open and sunny spot for Sunday brunch. Food was good - enjoyed the broccoli addition to the eggs bene.

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.
