“Great food”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 23, 2012

Popped in one morning for breakfast while visiting Wellington. There was a wide selection of food and the Hasbrown Stack was very tasty. I was impressed that a lot of the food (like the hashbrowns) appeared to have been home made.

“Special Dietary Needs”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 13, 2011

If you have special dietary needs go here as they now have a staff member who has passed the “Serving Customers with Special Dietary Needs” certificate. Midnight Expresso Bar’s customers are in good hands when they ask for Carl. http://specialdiets.xperts.co.nz

“Excellent coffee, vegan and vegetarian paradise, value for money”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 20, 2011

I am a regular at Midnight. The coffee is the locally-roasted Havana and is always excellent. The decor is quirky and grungy and sometimes the music is a bit loud, but it all adds to the Cuba St flavour. The food is all made in-house and there is heaps of choice for veg*ns, with most of the menu being vegan or vegetarian - including, oh joy of joys, animal-free cake and biscuits. The cabinet food is stunningly decorated with flowers/fruit/vegetables - I often feel like taking a photo. The nachos ($13 or $18) are huge and excellent value, as is most of the other food. It is open early and the kitchen shuts at midnight, although you can still get drinks and whatever cabinet food is still there until the wee small hours. Staff are eclectic and mostly cheery, counter service can be slow at busy times because the person who takes your order makes the coffee! Functional but grungy toilets reached by entering the phone box.
