Great selection of food

Dixon Street Deli has been a favorite of many for years and years. The selection of food is great and the sit down hot meals are also quite good. The number of regular visitors confirms the quality of this pleace.

My boyfriend and I order the open chicken sandwich (mine gluten free) and an ice chocolate each. Drink came out first and was good however was overpriced at $7.90. The food was great. It was a good portion and was fresh with lots of salad and chicken. This was priced better at $16. The menu wasn't that extensive but the... More

Rude staff, order a short black with the salmon and feta noodle salad. Staff forgot about the noodles which were in the microwave and blitzed to mush, barely edible. Short black was not even a quarter of the cup full. For $22.50 not worth a crumb

As always, they do great deli food very well. My tuna and coconut cake was beautifully seasoned and yummy! A side of green salad hit the spot and thank goodness they left the dressing on the side, not many places do that anymore. Great for lunch, breakfast or a snack. We were there for two hours and they didn't clean... More

Decided to give this place a second chance as it is the closest lunch spot to where I stay in Wellington and still looks good from window. Should have learnt the first time! Ordered the French toast with bacon and banana and was pretty terrible. Poor quality bacon that was undercooked, banana cut too large and soggy, bad French toast.... More

A nice place with a warm and pleasant atmosphere, helped by the sun coming in the windows in the morning. Some of the best coffee I've had in Wellington and a tasty breakfast. The service at the counter is fine without standing out but they appeared very friendly to regular customers as opposed to blow-ins on a business trip such... More

Just dropped in for a coffee and to deal with my email - but decided to try one of their Hot Cross Buns and glad I did. The staff warmed the bun and I found it most enjoyable
