Our Story


There is beauty in simplicity.

Nestled within beautifully manicured gardens, surrounded by trees, greenery and energetic bird song, Simple Cafe & Eatery provides a natural oasis in the bustling heart of Rosedale and Albany, on Auckland’s glorious North Shore.

Born out of an idea to bring the local business and residential community together, our focus remains to be a vibrant and relaxed ‘hub’, where people come for coffee and stay for the experience.

At Simple you can expect service delivered with a smile.  We aim to know all of our customers by name and greet you like family. Our small team is dedicated to building relationships and providing excellent service.

Our speciality coffee, by the nationally acclaimed Flight Coffee, is hand selected for its smooth blend, reflecting the palette of the café, and our menu is ever changing, keeping items fresh and exciting for all tastes to enjoy.

Simple Cafe is a versatile space, with wall to wall bi-folding doors leading to the sun drenched private courtyard. Parking made easy with several carparks in front of the café as well as on road parking. We also provide catering to our local area, delivering mouth-watering platters to businesses or events who are after ease and simplicity with an eye-catching, budget friendly difference. Our space can also be hired for events or parties and even staffed by our team if needed.

At Simple we understand that good coffee, great food and even better company make the perfect blend for life. Simple!
