Always a great stop for coffee and a bite to eat or to shelter from the rain. 30 mins free wifi doesn't hurt either. Breakfasts are great and we try and visit here at least once whenever we are in Wellington.

We has high hopes after hearing good reviews and decided to try here for breakfast. I opted for the buckwheat porridge and my sister eggs florentine.

Found this place on a previous trip to New Zealand 7 years ago and went back hoping it was still good - and we weren't disappointed. We had salads to take away and eat whilst watching the cricket and they were lovely. Would highly recommend the mango ice tea and the banana smoothie.

This place has been in Wellington for a long time and has a wide range of delicious food and drink on the menu. I haven't been there for a while but the couple of times I have been there I enjoyed it.

Best fresh food and service all year round. Not much space so plan when you want to eat. Between 12 - 2pm very busy. We normally have a brunch at 10am then we are able to get a table.
