A local recommended that we stop for a bite here. Situated on the wharf it has a great view of the harbor with delicious gelato, coffee and treats. The staff was very friendly and engaging, making for a delightful little stop.

Large and interesting range of gelato flavours. Ask for a tester spoonful so you can decide which one. May have to queue in summer!

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!

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.
