“Good food & coffee but a little pricey”
Reviewed October 8, 2011

The breakfast we had was very nice and very big – so big we couldn't finish it in fact. Food prices are reasonable but coffee is charged at central Wellington rates.

“Good location, shame about the staff”
Reviewed August 18, 2011

Nicely laid out atmospheric cafe. Food reasonable quality and value, although fairly limited selection. Good coffee, reasonably priced. Unfortunately it is significantly let down by the disinterested staff. Overall, there is little competition between this and Kaizen around the corner, which has a far better food selection, excellent service and better value.

“Restaurant on the Up”
Reviewed August 29, 2009

The Peppermill is becoming a favourite haunt for the brunch set on a Sunday. It is a Cafe / Delicatessen which is also licensed. Local beers and wine are available plus a small selection of European wines particularly Italian and Spanish. There is also a good selection of cooking oils available for purchase. Wines are for sale on premise and for takeaway.
We visited for Sunday brunch and the "Delicatessen" type fresh food was in limited supply as the Brunch Crowd is the target for Sunday mornings.
There were three of us dining, two having been there several times previously on Sunday mornings.
All of us had different choices , the "full breakfast" which had the usual sausages, eggs, tomatoes, mushrooms etc and toast. There was food in abundance and the diner complimented the food. The second of us had the cheese, basil omlette which was well cooked , again of generous proportions and the remarks "exquisite". I had the eggs benedict with bacon instead of ham. It tasted very good but its presentation disappointed. The coffee was also disappointing, tasting quite bitter.
The staff were friendly and there was only a short wait for the meals to be served.

Whilst breakfast and lunch and brunch on weekends are the more popular fare available the Peppermill is open late on Thursday, Friday and Saturday evenings for dinner.
Porirua is an eclectic city with some of richest properties in the country and in other parts of the city some of the poorest State owned owned properties. The City is some 2kms north of Wellington and is very popular with greater Wellington residents as a destination shopping hub.

Overall it was a good dining experience and wewill again use its facilities.
