This café really sets the standard for Wellington with its skilfully put-together New York theme and well-made coffee. The ambiance is perfect for a quiet Latte after work or a drink with friends.

I don't get it, if you do such good food (and I've had the calamari, fries and the wonderful mac & cheese - several times) why wouldn't you put a bit of effort into your servers. Sometimes ok, sometimes poor, but never really outstanding. And it could do with turning the music down. If I want a nightclub, I'll go... More

Having been here for many coffees previously, I decided to take my client here for lunch The thought of a nice ham off the bone, tomatoe and cheese toasted sandwich (baguette) sounded nice, my client thought so too, so we had one each When the advertised sandwich which promoted ham off the bone arrived, one would expect to find some...

Rude wait staff and AVERAGE food. The coffee was at New Zealand standard which is actually very good. Obviously travelling, I asked why everything was closed. I was informed with attitude (like I should obviously know) that it was the Christmas/NY break... It was the 5th of January... I would caution going here, there are many other better options. The...

Went there for breakfast with a group of 7 - we asked the waitress if we could have two tables joined together (for the group).... you would've thought we'd asked her to eat off the floor. ... it seemed like everything was too much of an effort for her. She even made a comment when she had to stretch over... More

Having read the reviews we'd thought we'd give Gotham a go. It was a cold wet Saturday morning when we arrived. There were three other couples in the place. The staff were having an issue with the till at the time and I heard the dishwasher was broken so they were a little stressed. Took our order, and had to... More

Came here for brunch on Sunday after a fairly late night out. Heard really good things about the cafe, so decided to give it a shot. Staff were awesome, really friendly and singing along to the music. Ordered bacon and scrambled eggs which was cooked perfectly, found that all the meals were just big enough- not too huge, but not... More

We are coming here for a while now and never been disappointed. We had brunch on a Saturday afternoon and the place was packed. We ordered a tomato soup and a New York style cheese sandwich with relish and salami. The sandwich consists of slabs of tasty bread with lots of cheese and other fillings. The soup was very tasty...

This is another welcome 'local' for those of us who live in the city. It's an unpretentious place. It is what it is - a cafe that has good fare, a wine list featuring local wines and helpful, friendly staff. The calamari was a good entree. We had the beef salad (tasty, with a bit of tang) and the pulled... More
