Needed to go shopping opposite so got going early and thereby missed the real rush. The place has a great ambience with a large number of well trained and organized staff, that were very pleasant. Great menu rand the food was just as great. We will be back.

We arrived during the extremely busy lunchtime period, but was lucky enough to get a table. The lively buzz of the restaurant adds to the charm and we were welcomed warmly by our server Maria, who was so helpful and friendly. Coffee is really great here, and my Mocha was delicious. I especially loved the addition of a chocolate on... More

I was lucky enough to be working just around the corner from l"affare last week during a business trip to Wellington so I treated myself to breakfast twice, and coffee several times over the two days. he mushrooms on ciabatta with a side of glorious bacon was beautiful, and if the portion had been any larger I would have over-eaten,...

Hadn't been here for years and revisited recently. Went at 11.30 thinking would beat the lunch rush but was still really busy and crowded especially lots of Mum's and toddlers/babies - yuck (yes I have 3 kids but when out I don't want to be surrounded by other people's kids). A lot of big communal tables which I can't stand.... More

Very busy for Sunday breakfast but we were seated very promptly and the service was fast - the food was substantial, tasty, well cooked and presented. Great atmosphere. Well priced for this standard of food and service.

Very slow service, but once we ordered our lunch, the Tuesday special and Caesar Salad, the plates came quickly, but were both tasteless. Wellington had much better spots.

We used to go to L'affare frequently, but haven't been for a while since Prefab opened around the corner. We went today but were very disappointed with the food. Porridge lacked flavour and was watery, and the mushrooms were below average. Coffee and service was good though. When I told the girl at the counter the food was fairly average... More

I had lunch with a friend here today and enjoyed the hustle and bustle of this cafe. It's set out well and the service is awesome. I enjoyed the smoked salmon which they happily did on gluten free toast for me and my friend had a ham roll from the cabinet. Coffee was really good and overall it was a... More
