It's been a while since this was my regular spot for coffee. The coffee is still really good and my panini was good if not spectacular. Most of the reviews mention the friendly staff and certainly the staff on the till were very nice. However, even though it was only moderately busy, first my coffee, and then the panini were...

Wow busy in town today. Decided to try our luck at Gotham. Service was really good they warned us there would be a 30 min wait for food. I'm pretty sure it wasn't that long and the drinks came pretty quickly. Food was really good. Big breakfast eggs cooked beautifully, omelette, French toast and Salmon Montreal good, my falafel and...

We always try to stop here when in Wellington. They do great coffee and food. It is tucked away in an alleyway behind the shopping strip and a great little place to sit and refuel. They have a menu as well as some paninis etc in the cabinet. Plus a great selection of cakes. Yummy.

Stopped off for brunch at this busy little cafe tucked down Chews Precinct between Victoria St and Willis St. It has a friendly relaxing vibe. Excellent Havana coffee is served. A small cabinet selection of freshly prepared food is displayed and a good range of options on the menu for brunch or lunch. Staff are friendly and obliging.

Cafe was pleasant and the menu was just what we were looking for on a Sunday at 11.30 but unfortunately coffee was warm and eggs were cold. It was a shame as the eggs would have been the best I had tasted for ages, but cold poached eggs are a definite, No. It was busy but not packed, not really... More

After wandering around on wet Wellington day I stumbled across the café. I ordered the New York cheese sandwich and was pleasantly surprised. It was huge and very delicious. Very good value for money. I look forward to going back again
