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

A wet and windy day, this cafe was a welcome shelter from the storm. Very busy and we had to wait for a table. Great decor, from the solid oak tables, to the classy photos on the wall. Eggs benedict was tasy if a little on the small side - no side salad. The lamb burger was also tasty and... More

I really liked the solid oak tables in this well-located cafe near the water feature in the Cuba Mall. We stopped in for a beer after dining elsewhere on a Friday night and were made most welcome, the large mirrors on the wall are another attraction, we didn't eat anything but we enjoyed our visit.
