Stopped off here to sample the Wellington on a plate burger entry. A delicious little coq au vin buttermilk chicken number in a Zaida bun i recall correctly. Was very enjoyable! The venue is quite cool with good outdoor seating. Looking forward to going back and trying their standard menu.

Had to add another rating on this place - they seemed to be the only cafe open over Xmas/new year in the city and they were duly packed out. The staff were amazing given there were people everywhere ( we couldn't even get in the door to start with!) there were people dining, getting takeaway coffee etc... and all the... More

Dropped in for a refreshing drink. Had the weakest smoothies at a premium price. Might as well be water. Don't recommend. Not sure if the food is any good... don't really want try.

Enjoyable meal, great menu, great service by Anna (?) who mentally retained our order !! Very impressive. Very fast & efficient service. Salads were a culinary delight, compliments to the Chef. The weather was wild & woolly, yet the atmosphere in cafe was warm & hip. Congratulations to Management for apparent happy cohesive staff, which in turn imploded onto patrons.

So for my 15th review of this cafe in an attempt to get past TA biased filters: As a coffee lover, I expected to enjoy Wellington because of its coffee. Second only to Melbourne has long been a slogan thrown about for this city. Wow, no. Wrong. I've been to 1 to 2 different places per day for a week... More

Lovely cafe with good decor and a great vibe. I had the breakfast sandwich which was excellent! Lovely fresh bread roll half toasted and filled with lots of the crispiest, tastiest bacon, topped with tomato, an egg and hollandaise. Also came with a side of fries to ensure I was leaving with a full stomach! Friends had the pancakes which... More

When the wind isn't blowing in Wellington and the sun is out, why not eat out for lunch? We were lucky to get a seat outside and enjoy the best of Wellington. We have been to Plum before and I am always a fan of eggs Benedict... the service was good and the food came out promptly considering they were... More
