“Our favourite”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 19, 2012

We have eaten at this cafe for several years and it's food and coffee is consistently just tops. We take visitors there and they agree. It is very popular and can get crowded but that just adds to the atmosphere.

“Best Seafood Chowder ever!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 18, 2012

If Seafood Chowder is on the menu wherever I go i have to have it.

Without doubt the Seafood Chowder I had here is the best I have ever tried. Huge bowl and so filling.

“Yummy Gluten Free Brownie and fab coffee”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 12, 2012

Being a Wellingtonian coffee snob I struggle to find good coffee, Ritual Espresso made an excellent espresso. They also had the most fantastic Gluten Free brownie I have ever had. We went there every day of our stay.

“Have had better”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed August 26, 2012 via mobile

Nice location but not exactly what I would call good service and the coffee was terrible maybe a new barista could be handy! Had a very yummy slice here though
