We had only landed in Wellington quite late and had just gotten sorted at our accommodation and it was getting pretty late. Walked past and read menu, but the aromas wafting out the door that sold us. Everything from that moment onwards was wonderful. We will be back again for sure.

Popped into Plum late on Saturday night to have a coffee with some family from out of town. Apparently we differ from their usual clientele as the front of house made it obvious we weren't wanted. Ended up getting it to take away to get out of the place. Average coffee and terrible customer service.

plum is a narrow, old fashioned cafe in Wellington's trendy Cuba Street. The staff were very friendly, the menu interesting and prices reasonable. I ordered the 'Wellington on a Plate' special of a pork and paua burger with a squid ink bun. This intriguing dish did not disappoint and neither did Plum.

Had the Eggs Montreal and a long black. Excellent service and the food was amazing, I will miss this place as I no longer live in New Zealand. Seating and ambience is great for breakfast, and located pretty central for tourists and weekend eating.

Got brunch here with a friend one weekend morning - Plum was packed but we were seated immediately, given menus and water. Food was so good and nicely priced, service was attentive but unobtrusive. Definitely recommend

My wife and I used to frequent Plum when we lived in Wellington, we were here for the weekend so decided to have dinner here on Saturday night. I had the lamb rump and my wife the chicken breast, both very decent portions and cooked to perfection, the only downfall to our meals was the so called "jus". Last time... More

Had a fab meal at Plum with 2 small kids in tow. There's a kids playground right outside the restaurant and we were able to have a drink out there and order our food while watching the kids. The waiter came and got us when our food arrived at the table and it was all delicious! Amazing service and beautiful... More
