Cuba mall is now a height of activity. There are so many lovely coffee shops restaurants that are springing up . Soon if will be more eating places that shops . The kids and tourists love to see the water tip from bucket to bucket in the water fountain. On the weekend it's good to see the kids playing music... More

It's a slightly rundown hipster area with two or three vintage shops and a few cafes. Nice enough but really noting special. The better places seemed to be up the hill.

This really is where all the good restaurants and cafes are so it was hard to go anywhere else. We looked at trip advisor and wanted to visit Logan Brown, Olive, matterhorn and floriditas- all in cuba😁 Great shops especially thrift and ikoiko.

Firstly, it was a day visit not a night time visit. It was all a bit scruffy & Needs a bit of a clean. Dull shops & charity sales people, (we call them chuggers in the UK). If this is the best shopping Wellington has to offer - it's a shame.

Cuba St is always fun. Some interesting, quirky shops and excellent food and coffee to be found. We particularly love Floriditas, Loretta and Olive. Can't wait to go back!

With the university halls of residence at the top of the street, it has a fabulous mix of people, shops and restaurants. Recommend a wander to see some quirky shops and some of the best restaurants in town. And the location of the infamous bucket fountain kids and adults both like this.

Cuba Street has always been a 'bit out there' and it isn't changing in a hurry. More food places coming along all the time it seems and a few of the arty, crafty places going but it still has a fun feel to it. If it is a nice day it is a great place to sit, drink a coffee... More
