We visited for brunch on a Sunday and enjoyed the decadent pancakes and coffee. Service was very good, the food came quickly and the waitress was helpful in suggesting we order to avoid delays with a couple of large groups just arriving. Atmosphere was good on a fine Sunday with the Rugby 7's crowds. Very pleasant way to spend an... More

Me and my partner ordered the plumster breakfast, the kransky sausages smelt off, my partner is a chef and knows the smell of a off sausage. The poached eggs were gooey in the middle and the bacon i felt was underdone. The mushrooms, tomatoes and hash were nice. My partners scambled eggs looked brown and wernt that nice. Probably wouldnt... More

I spent two nights in Wellington around New Years and was fortunate to find Plum. I had one dinner and two breakfasts there and completely enjoyed the food, atmosphere and great service. I ordered a glass of wine that did not suit me and the bartender replaced it for something more to my taste. Delicious salads-very friendly staff.

Food and coffee were great, and arrived very quickly. The real outstanding part was the service, unfortunately I didn't get our servers name( she had dark hair and tattoos) she was extremely attentive and very cheery, excellent at her job.

Came here as was strolling through central Wellington and stumbled across this place. Had the major plumster, good portion sizes and the food was pretty good. Nothing particularly special though. Service was ok but again not fantastic. We waited quite a while for the bill so ended up just getting up and paying at the counter. All in all though,... More

Enjoyed the opportunity to sit outside and the coffee (flat white). My companion and I felt the service was a little fragmented today but the staff were pleasant. Her scrambled eggs and mushrooms were very tasty, for myself I ordered toast and spreads. I had to ask for butter and it came only with marmalade, happens that I prefer jam... More
