Great Coffee

Loved the coffee here! Was quite close to perfection in my opinion! Breakfast menu is good as well - I had scrambled eggs w/ side of mushrooms & it was delish. Would go back here next time in Welly.

Found this little beauty by chance on our last day in Wellington and so happy we did. Excellent coffee, friendly service and tasty food make for a winning combination in a town saturated with coffee houses and cafes. I loved the fried cheese sandwich with extras that included red onion & tomato and ham off the bone, the best I've... More

This place is like a beehive. Constant movement! We periodically call in for lunch and sometimes have to wait for a spare table - but it's worth it!

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.
