A magical little cafe

Another Harry Potter cafe (with ontrays- Petone) - arising as a result of maranui's stint as a Phoenix, this is a magical interior set in an old wooden shop around the corner. Five or so inside cafe tables with three seats each gives it a rather cramped feel and your eyes rove across so many... read more

This deli is very cute but did not have a lot of deli style meats or options when we arrived at 2pm. The shop is very small and waiting in line or for coffees is awkward but the staff were friendly and the service was good. I had an iced chocolate and a donut, both were tasty.

This is the place to go for a very healthy take away lunch. they have excellent fresh salads they make daily that are great value and taste delicious. They also make very yummy scones. There is seating inside and outside for a few people. would recommend.

i love this place. The staff are always friendly and they do great fruit scones and coffee. There isn't much space to sit down, so it is usually a take away.

This is one of my favourite cafes. It is very small, and doesn't have a huge food selection but what it has is amazing. Best coffee in Wellington, and a selection of deli foods to buy. Queue down the street on a fine weekend day! Worth noting it is closed on Mondays and Tuesdays.

Everything here is amazing. There is an incredible view right outside the door where you can see the water and harbor. The location is right in the neighborhood where you can see the more quaint side of Windy Welly. Inside the little cafe you will be overwhelmed with the wonderful sensation of smell as your nose tried to break the... More

Very cool cafe! Absolutely loved it! Great coffee, great service, great staff, great everything :) i ordered a coffee and a muffin, both of which were absolutely delicious. Only downpoint is the cafe is quite small and not really enough room to sit down and have a proper chat with someone as there isn't much moving space, so not particularly... More

Great little cafe with vegan salads and other lunch options ( veg sushi rolls with brown rice, mushroom barley cakes, salad- usually 4 choices). Delicious coffee ( Havana 5 star blend) and smoothies to die for ( no added sugar) ! Great looking cakes, I found that the frosting on the cupcakes is way to sweet but maybe it's just... More

This isn't my local by any means but I regularly travel right across town to go there. The food is always amazing, particularly the salads. The staff are friendly and the coffee is unfailingly good. Lovely atmosphere and on a sunny Saturday morning there is often a queue out the door. There is a good selection of imported specialty foods... More

In Wellington last weekend needing a place to grab some food and coffee and came across this cafe, 25 metres walk from the sands of Lyall Bay. They had an excellent choice of tasty food and were happy to add some ham to my roll without hassle or additional cost. The coffee was made with love and tasted great. The... More
