Welcome to Cakes n Ladders

Cakes n Ladders is Auckland’s premier board gaming café. We welcome all persuasions, from hard-core gamers and families to couples on a date or groups of friends looking for a space to spend time together. Our gaming library features a growing collection of card and board games including traditional family games, Euro games, games featured on TableTop (a popular gaming web series), and more. The concept is modeled after popular overseas board game cafés such as Castle in Toronto, and Draughts in London. Customers who wish to play games pay just $3.00 an hour per person to access our wonderful library of games in our funky, comfortable café.

Auckland is currently at Alert Level 3. This means we are open for contactless pickups and purchases only. Check here for details. Stay safe everyone.
