Welcome to Cakes n Ladders

Cakes n Ladders is Auckland’s premier gaming café. We welcome all persuasions, from hard-core gamers, to families, couples on a date, and 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 and more. The concept is modelled after popular overseas board game cafés such as Castle in Toronto and Draughts in London. Customers who wish to play games pay just $4.00 an hour per person to access our wonderful library of games in our funky, comfortable café.
