Beautiful cosy place near the town center, turf on the ground, South American music, painted colorful tables outside Waiters are really professional and service is good. I went there a couple of times for brunch and unfortunately every time there was something wrong, bacon overcooked, they forgot a juice, eggs overcooked.. Excellent service and atmosphere but quite bad food

I was referred to it by a work college. we had lunch there and it was really lovely. the food, the service, the menu variety, and the whole atmosphere. the only downside is the inner space is limited. the spacing between the chairs is only enough for someone to pass sideways regardless you are large or small. nonetheless, it's a...

Oh my goodness, where do you start, what shall I choose? So many choices of hot breakfasts, I chose the Bubble & Squeak with bacon and a fried egg on top - great choice, but the cold cabinet looked amazing too, I've never seen such huge muffins and such a fantastic choice. The coffee was up there with some of... More

Took the kids to get the famous snickers milkshake at 11.30 in the morning, after we placed our order the waiter came back to say they could make them as they had no ice cream?? Disappointed! We then waited 25 mins a least for our coffee, the muffins were tasteless and dry.

U have to try the snickers thick shake!! It's amazing! The food is delicious and even though it was very busy on a Saturday afternoon we were seated within 5 mins and our food service was quick and of a high quality. Highly recommend 😀

An oldie but a goodie. Can't believe it has taken me so long to try this place and now its a favourite. Too many good things on the menu to recommend the best but if you are really hungry, try the snickers shake - guaranteed to keep you full for the whole day.

Loved this restaurant / café - we had breakfast brunch at the rear of the restaurant on a miserable cold day. The coffee was awesome and the food and service were excellent. Would definitely return to this place plus tell 20 people!

Gorgeous boho spot for brunch, lunch and dinner (only weekends). Grilled haloumi was gorgeous, I will return for that! Cubana grilled sandwich was a hit too. Great coffee and atmosphere. This will have multiple visits from us on this trip to Wellington!

small cafe, popular and nice drinks served through the hatch, seating area is squashed if busy, it looks like it is usually busy as a popular place.
