Nice Bbreakfast

A lovely spot for a quick breakfast. The staff were very friendly and efficiency. I had bacon and eggs and a flat white. Total cost was around $20. The food was tasty and well presented.

Best mega cheese toasties on the planet. Great atmosphere down a quiet central city lane close to the library. Food is fresh with honest servings. Step back out and you are on the Main Street again after a refreshing time out.

Like everywhere in Wellington the coffee great. The service was average, not exactly falling over themselves to help, but adequate. The café can be a little loud for work meetings.

Great themed cafe with one hour of free wifi available. I had a T2 English Breakfast Tea ($4) which was good quality and did make good use of their free wifi. Pleasant 'Batman' interior with a few seating pods which would be greag for a small group. Definitely a cafe I'll look for next time in Wellington

Came upon this cafe tucked inconspicuously down in Chews Lane early on a Saturday morning. The lack of sun outside was more than compensated by the cosy interior and warmth of the staff. A good range of cabinet food and a black board menu selection is on offer. The Havana coffee was great and the barista makes a fine flat... More

This is a little gem for breakfast. We were a hungry bunch after a BIG Wellington craft beer filled weekend and no one was disappointed. I had the New York Grilled sandwich which was 10/10!

The standard in this cafe has dropped. We visited one very chilly Saturday and none of the heaters had been turned on. It was uncomfortably cold. We asked for the heater to be turned on and the waitress reluctantly said she would but warned that it would take sometime for it to heat up. She took our drinks orders before... More

It was packed, and the staff looked run off their feet BUT we still got great service, the best coffee I had in Wellington, and a delicious brunch! Maybe don't bother if you need to get i nand out in a hurry, but if you was a great brunch/lunch, (with plenty of people watching)then this is a great place to... More

You go there expecting to see a lot of batman items but there's actually nothing. Nothing! I'm a DC fan and I was so happy having lunch there but I'm quite disappointed now.. Not even a batman logo on the menu or anywhere. Let's talk about the waitresses, cold, bored, no smiling, grumpy.. The sandwich I had was good tough... More
