Herald Rating: 3/5

We came here because we were due a post-school holiday catch-up and had heard about the garden out back, perfect on a sunny day.
Parking was in front, on the street.
We walked in and immediately thought the brick walls oozed atmosphere and art and the garden setting on two levels was indeed a charmer.
The most unusual thing on the menu was brown rice porridge.
We ordered creamy portobello mushrooms with ciabatta and avocado ($17.50) and pancakes with fresh fruit, yogurt, lemon curd and maple syrup ($13.50). Both dishes were well presented and delicious, with the pancakes proving just a little too much for Leanne.
The service was friendly and efficient.
The coffee was very good. Leanne appreciated the marecetto - like a latte but being in a glass, less overwhelming than a bowl.
We recommend if you come here and it's fine, take the opportunity to sit outside and escape the world in the garden before hitting the Ponsonby boutiques.
Overall we thought One 2 One is a fine place for a catch-up.By Sue Baxalle
