I've been going to this place for years and make sure I pop in every time I visit Wellington. Great coffee and excellent eggs at breaky. A little way up Cuba Street but I think it's worth the walk.

The staff here are always super helpful and really friendly. The food at Fidels is delicious and reasonably priced. We love the salt and pepper squid!

Mid morning coffee, lunch, late afternoon. Always a great place to hang out by yourself or with a group. Unhurried service, but in a good way. Food and coffee lovely too.

Very busy the day we went but still got seated and food was excellent. When I visit Wellington my daughter always takes me, it's her favourite place as well. Not expensive for any type of food wanted.

Everytime I visit Wellywood I head to Fidel's for their famous Snickers milkshake. Amazing. The place is always bustling with business, so if you dislike crowds I would recommend takeaway. Due to the busyness it can take a while for tables to be cleared of dirty dishes. Alternative, funky and fast-paced is how I would describe Fidel's. The pizza is... More

I've been to Fidel's a number of times and have always enjoyed the food there. The waffles are some of the best I've had! And the milkshakes are amazing!
