The City Daily Photo theme for February is “Cafe”. Click here for more images from around the globe.

The Library Cafe” in Onehunga used to be a “Carnegie Free Library”; the building operated as library from 1912 to 1970. Presently, the stately building operates as child friendly and down to earth cafe. There is a sizeable dining room and a more intimate “Reading Room”, all with fine wood paneling. Enjoyable atmosphere and good coffee.
