Just my opinion but I didn't like anything I had! The hot chocolate just wasn't nice. The cake and brownie we shared were both dry and tasteless. Toilets were cool though and the people were nice! I didn't try their coffee and maybe the other cakes were nice but as there are a lot of cafes in Wellington I wouldn't... More

Another one of these iconic Wellington cafés that is a great place for a coffee or meal. It's a bit dark inside but that's part of the character, and also part of the name

Amazingly good coffee. Most of the time it is consistent. Very quick. Staff very nice too. Food is mostly good. I really like the late opening hours.

Good ambience, plates for all and good service. It is a tad disappointing that the true wild Bohemians no longer frequent the place, are dead or have left the country. Cell phone users appear to have replaced the poets but never mind, some of us still remember the days of Midnight in her prime.

Frequented thos place regularly when staying in Cuba St. Great coffee and a wide variety of vegan and vege friendly options. Open late so good for a late night feed following a night out. Friendly staff great atmosphere, a little cramped at times.

Excellent selection of reasonable meals, both in terms of cabinet food and menu items. Good for a snack too. Some people get hung up about the service here but to be honest I really enjoy going somewhere where the staff are having a good time, even if it means you have to wait a while to be served while they...

Stumbled in here off Cuba street eager for a good feed and it certainly didn't disappoint. I ordered the Omelette with mushroom, spinach and smoked salmon. It was generous and delicious. The hash brown and egg stack looked lovely too. Great cup of coffee too. Not too plush or over friendlly but nice hipster vibe and excellent food. Will definitely... More

When you do manage to get a seat this place is great for a quick meal, otherwise it has to be a to-go but that is okay as long as they keep making their amazing bliss balls! Great prices for fantastic food. The vegan nachos are also amazing. Loud music, busy staff, smallish place, but that is part of the... More
