Great Coffee

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... read 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

From the outside this place looks nice. Good cabinet food and the interior looks nice but that's about where it stops. The service isn't great my chicken bagel burger was horrible to the point that I could only pick good bits out. If you're looking for a good brunch spot keep walking round the corner to prefab

I got a homemade lemon honey ginger... If definitely wasn't one of those Shott ones! Very tart with big hunks of ginger in it... Made me wonder if any honey had gone near the thing. My friend's scrambled eggs and bacon looked average - dumped on the plate. however the cabinet food (clearly what they do best) was out in... More

Wasn't impressed, the meal was expensive and the coffee was not great. Didn't finish it. Service was friendly though.

Brought my daughter here for some post shopping afternoon tea. We ordered a hot Choc, a latte and a piece of fudge. My latte was terrible, mostly froth & really bitter. The piece of fudge we were given was the tiny end piece, there were plenty of others in the platter, but the staff selected the smallest piece, which stung... More

I enjoyed brunch with 3 others on a Saturday morning. Food was delicious and coffee nice. A pleasant ambience and good service. Would go back on my next visit to Wellington.

Having read great reviews, we went there for breakfast. There is nothing wrong with it but in a city where the break $$$ are widely spread one can't sit back on one's laurels and expect to draw the customers a second time when the choice is so good. Firstly, counter service?? It is not a deli i.e. it doesn't sell... More
