“Unexpected find”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 9, 2014

Tucked away about 20 minutes from downtown Wellington, Scorch-O-Rama was an unexpected find. They offer a variety of tasty dishes and desserts. We loved the seaside views and relaxed atmosphere. A friendly cat meanders around the tables for added charm.

“Quick service, friendly people”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 2, 2014

We had lunch here as part of a LOTR tour with the Wellington Rover Tours and had a specialised LOTR themed menu, which was awesome!!! The food came out super quickly, and the staff were friendly and helpful.
Love the decor, especially the comic book wallpaper, that's awesome!!! The owner? had just got a Star Wars framed print to hang up, hope it's there now, because that looked awesome too!

“Quick service”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed June 8, 2014 via mobile

The service here was super fast, our meals arrived in short time.
The menu had a good variety. The hot chips that came with the BLAT were crispy and delicious. The view was of the sea was wonderful from the warm inside looking out the large windows. On a sunny day sitting outside on the beach front outdoor tables would be lovely. The paua shell decorations were clever and added interest to the outside area.

“Great atmosphere, great location, great food”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 17, 2014

We were here for lunch as part of a Lord of the Rings tour, and so got to choose from a LotR themed menu. The food came out quickly and was delicious, and the service was incredibly friendly.

The atmosphere and decor were also great- loved the comic book wallpaper on the walls, which provided a great source of conversation throughout the meal!

Will definitely return next time we're in Wellington!

“Always a great spot at anytime.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 13, 2014

Visited for brunch with my husband on my birthday. A grey day outside but as always a very warm welcome at Scorch-O-Rama. Great variety on the menu, plenty of choices for all tastes. Service, food and coffees were excellent.
