We asked a number of locals where the best place to eat was in Wellington and 3 out of 3 people recommended plum- and we weren't disappointed! The atmosphere inside was great, we had a fabulous waiter who was just hilarious and the food was good. I had the lamb sliders and my partner had the beef... read more

We had a meal at the Plum Cafe. We sat outside as it was a lovely evening. I had the lamb. It was absolutely delicious and my wife Also enjoyed the fish and chips. Good beer as well. Service was also first class.

We went there on a Saturday night, having walked down Cuba Street where all our favourites were full - we have been to Plum for breakfast and it was great but dinner was slow, ordinary and expensive for what it was. It is only cafe after all! The service was great with nice people serving but the kitchen was slow.... More

Excellent service at all round decent cafe. $50 for one portion of pancakes and one full breakfast with hot drinks. Food was easy to demolish and was served with a smile. Staff were pleasant and attentive, so all in all, a decent stop for a weekend breakfast.

We got slices in the cabinet. They were cheaper than usual which should have signalled something to us... Absolutely gross and nasty. Service was rude and ostensibly nosy, looking at us and our plates every time they walked to the kitchen. I wouldn't go back.

Took our grandson (14) for two nights in the city. Had breakfast at "Plum". it was a treat. Just loved the variety on the menu. I had boring old scrambled eggs - beautifully boring. The rest of the group were more adventuresome . Great service -calm and efficient,

Plum is always thriving so one late morning I wondered in. The menu is awesome, lots of variety, especially the options for bread! I ended up having the pancakes but the person I was with was spoilt for choice. The barista is skilled with each coffee coming out with a different but neat foam, which I always feel is rather...

Great breakie! Friendly staff! Great menu! Nice coffee! Also offered a kids menu which was great as we had our 9 and 7 year old kids with us.. Great place to come with kids as they left us alone whilst playing on the play equipment which is right next door:) loved the atmosphere on Cuba mall..

Overpriced for what we received and the coffee was ordinary, but the staff are great as is the location in the middle of Cuba Street.
