This restaurant was within walking distance from our hotel and very convenient for breakfast. The staff was very friendly and welcoming. Coffee was delicious - Oh how I miss the New Zealand flat white! - Eggs and toast were perfectly cooked. Husband really enjoyed his eggs benedict. Price for breakfast was typical for what we paid in New Zealand.

Very impressed from the start. Plum was busy with no tables spare but one of the waitstaff took my details and called me within 10min to say a table was free. Friendly attentive staff and my crispy duck salad was amazing. So tender, crispy and with amazing flavours with apple and walnut. Was tasted by other people at the table... More

I really enjoyed coming into plum for an afternoon cap with a friend after a long day. The staff are kind and smiling. We did not try their food but wine and beer are of a wide variety.

I regularly come to plum, I love their coffee and their staff are always so friendly and welcoming. Especially the very tall blonde girl, she has a nose piercing and usually rocking doc martins and a top knot. But don't let her somewhat intimidating appearance deceive you, she's a real sweetheart, someone you'd trust with your coffee or food. At... More

Regularly come here for breakfast when visiting Wellington. Great coffee, great location right next to the bucket fountain and children's playground in Cuba Mall, love watching the people whilst having my Half Sized Plumster breakfast, which is divine! Then another coffee because it really is the best. Perfect fuel station before hitting the shops!

My wife an I had dinner at plum tonight. The meal was delicious, although the steak could have been a little .more tender. The potato gratin, the caramelised onion, the spinach and the sauce were nice. There was something lacking by way of atmosphere. The staff were efficient but lacking in friendliness. A smile would possibly helped. It was not... More

We have dined here on previous occasions and always enjoyed the atmosphere of Cuba Street and the meals. They also have a great wine selection. This time we took two friends and they were equally impressed. I had the pork belly which was lovely, not too fatty and nicely crunchy skin. All he meals were well cooked, well presented and... More

Have been here a few times, great service and food. Usually go for a late lunch on the weekend around 2.30pm when it's quieter. Love the vege plumster and even better that half size portions are available which is plenty for me and provides lots of variety. Great that you can tuck yourself away quietly at the back or sit...

A bit of a shaky start - we had booked a table using their online system only to turn up to find they did not have our booking and at the time the restaurant, both inside and out, was very full. They found us a very small table promising that when a larger table became available we would be moved.... More

We stopped by this place for an early dinner wandering around cuba street. We ended up getting a seat inside the cafe but with a view of the street for people watching which was nice. The service was fast and our meals were tasty. We also ordered mixed drinks which were good but mine was filled to the top with... More
