If you are strolling on the waterfront on a warm summer day there is no better place to stop in and cool off. Wonderful range of flavours. The hardest thing is choosing.

This small cafe on the Wellington waterfront is an excellent place for an ice cream and a coffee. We didn't try anything else there but were very happy with the friendly service and quality of what we bought. Kaffee Eis would be a real temptation for repeat visits if we lived in Wellington!

I love gelato but this place is especially delish and the staff are super friendly. Good value for the money too.

Best gelato in Wellington, and they allow you to sample before deciding. Despite often being busy they never rush you to make up your mind. If you can handle it (or want to share) it is cheaper to buy it by the litre.

This place is exactly what travelers need after a long trip. Drop in for a warm environment, good people, and a great cup of coffee/joe. I went a little crazy and got some gelato and pastries and was not disappointed. I would suggest it for a casual date and even a business meeting.

I love stopping in here for a gelato because the boys behind the counter are lovely and chatty and knowledgable about what they are serving. The cafe has a nice atmosphere, but I've never had anything other than gelato and coffee at Kaffee Eis, so I'm not judging it on its entire menu. The flavours of gelato available are surprising...

Kaffee Eis has reliably good gelato and the staff always appear friendly and approachable. Prices are reasonable ($4.50 for a sizeable scoop in a cup, which is the perfect size for one person or two if you're not a big sweets person). There are a variety of interesting flavours, covering fruits, chocolates, and unusual options such as after eight (choc... More

Great choice of flavors - not just the typical chocolate and vanilla but passion fruit, coconut, after eight and black Doris plum to name a few. Generous serving size at a reasonable price. After our first visit, it became a daily afternoon break.

I ate at all the Kaffe Eis places (Cuba st, Courtney place and Frank Kitts) over the summer numerous times as we spent all summer in Wellington. Each time the gelato was delish but I noticed the cones always had a rancid taste. Every single time. My sister came to stay and we got a gelato from Cuba St. I... More
