Great food. Delish portobelo mushrooms. Great location. No busy traffic going past. Nice place to meet work colleagues for breakfast. Free WiFi is a bonus.

We went on a Sunday after the all blacks played the springboks. It was real busy and were told a 30 minute wait for food. Came in 20 mins and SOOO worth the wait!!! Delicious tea too!

Came in for brunch - breakfast was good...but coffee was one of the best I've had! Service and atmosphere was casual and good! Staff was very attentive-I will definitely be coming back to this cafe when I visit Wellington!
