Great place for breakfast

Great food, great coffee, great staff, nice atmosphere and on a purely personal note the music is awesome - haven't heard The Cure love cats for decades! Would go back again.

No bookings here but we lucked on a table almost as soon as we arrived. Good service which was fast and efficient and food lovely. Good menu with interesting dishes which were not run of the mill. It always full and lively making for an enjoyable dinner.

We LOVED this place - the pizza's were unreal, crusts were truly Italian, toppings weren't complicated plus their pasta dishes were great. Every day this restaurant was busy (as it's situated on Cuba St) the service was consistently great. Would definitely recommend this place.

Wow, wow and wow!!!! What a great little place to eat, drink and feel special. We were looking for a place for dinner and the kids wanted pizza. We did a trip advisor search and one place was closed and the other had no sit in dining (we found out after reaching each location). We ran into some locals and... More

Had brunch here on a Sunday. The options are interesting I suppose but really, with all the top choice in Wellington, it is about $3 more than I would expect to pay. The Mocha I had to drink was weak with the foam more like meringue - didn't really enjoy it at all. The food was well cooked and presented... More

we thoroughly enjoyed our breakfast - could read the papers, sit in the sun (you might need your sunglasses on) and eat scrummy yummy food. Waitress was charming and attentive - one of the best coffees I had in Wellington that weekend.

First meal out when we arrived in Wellington. We ordered the gnocchi which was simply divine. The flavours worked perfectly,I've never enjoyed a plate of food so much! It's been a while since we ate there and to this day I still remember how great that gnocchi was. I would happily travel another 7 hours to get a mouthful of... More
