This is a trendy café in an old shop in the centre of Petone Main Street. Very good food and coffee. I have been there a number of times. Not overly big inside, but there is a small out back courtyard, and about 3 tables out front on the footpath. Good menu, caters for vegetarian meals too. I normally have... More

Very nice coffee and nice food. But very busy and noisy. Service is reasonably quick but slows when packed. Not a good place for a conversation but great for atmosphere.

I love Cafe Figg.. such a big selection of food to choose from. they have cabinet full of sweet and savoury.. plus menu. Cafe is quite small and busy so can be hard to find a table inside. Meals come out quickly. My favorite is the Tomato and bacon soup.

Popped into the cafe for a warm up cup a tea and cake. Blueberry cheese cake was very nice, tea plunger took a minute to work out. Was close to closing time but they were still happy to take orders . Would go again but earlier to see the full cabinet.

Warm and cosy with friendly staff and the normal lunch and brunch foods found in cafes around the country . They have comfy seating options and are happy to cater to variations on the menu etc.

Went here this morning on a Thursday) with my son and daughter-in-law. Place was busy which is a good sign. I am particular about my coffee, if it is luke warm or not strong enough I won't come back. Coffee I had was one of the best ever. We tried their gluten-free lemon cheese cake and plum cake, both were... More

We went on a Monday morning. The place is clean and the staff service is just amazing. My partner had the most delicious iced mocha he ever had in wellington area. The burger is humongous and yummy. I had pancakes which are ok as well. Would definitely come back here.

We seek out Cafe Figg whenever we're in Petone. The vegetarian sandwich/rolls are yummy, the staff go above and beyond to be helpful, the atmosphere warm. A cafe that is enjoyed by many locals also.

My eyes were bigger than my stomach. I had a piece of carrot cake and a bowl of naked wedges (no chilli and cheese). My goodness, I wanted a doggy bag for the chips but I looked on it as a challenge to finish everything, and I did. The cafe was full with people coming and going all the time.
