Staying in Wellington just two nights and stumbled into this place for our first breakfast. The food was really fresh and well made and the coffee was perfect. Went back the next day.

This is my favourite cafe in Wellington hands down - consistently delicious, good portions and friendly staff. Have not had dinner here yet but am going to make a point of it - menu looks just as appealing!

We had lunch with a friend on a Sunday and it was very relaxed. We had the beef salad which was tasty; my only criticism (and it seems to be a Wellington thing) is that the salad portions are a bit on the small side. That said the staff were attentive and friendly and the tea and coffee very good.

Had a nice breakfast here before going to Te Papa and taking the ferry. Yummy coffee and Benedicts, plus free wifi! An easy place to leisurely sit and enjoy your morning.

Great location, great food, great service. I would recommend the mini Plumstar on the menu, but if you are feeling hungry, the major one is always there!

At the town wondering what to get for the breakfast. We picked this place to try and ended up with a very delicious breakfast with poached eggs, bacon, sausages and hash browns. Very friendly atmosphere and if you're in town I highly recommend to try it.

If you want to chill out in the middle of Cuba Street. This place is amazing for slowing down for a good 30 minutes or so. The staff are always friendly and welcoming, the coffee is to die for.

With surprisingly few cafés open on Sunday morning in Wellington it was a relief to find Plum. My wife chose it and liked it, and she's not easily impressed. For my wife a delicious Mini Plumster, which was not so mini. Pretty much a big breakfast by Auckland's pricey standards. Unusually enjoyable hash browns, not so greasy, tasting fresh. For... More

Trendy street cafe with excellent food. Their "Plum Burger" was so good along with their fish and chips plate and they topped it off with great service. Thanks.

I love this cafe. Every time I'm in Wellington I come and get the Kumera stack with loads of hollandaise sauce. I was in wellington over labour weekend and wanted to come here but we left it a bit late and they were very busy. We decided to come back on the Tuesday instead. I don't know what changes they've...
