we love this place, food is great, coffee excellent, the views are to die for, you won't find better in Wellington on a beautiful sunny day. There is a good range of vegetarian options too.
Even on a rainy day the staff will make you feel better with their chat and attention. Not many place supply, sun hats, sun glasses and sun lotion, that is looking after the customer.

Myself and my family came here for a late lunch on a Sunday afternoon. It was fairly busy but enough staff to cover the customers. Food was good, we had the scrambled eggs, chicken sandwich and fish n chips, good but not great. Waitresses we found weren't attentive enough, we saw 2 waitresses polishing cutlery when there were tables to be waited on, surely one can do it on their own. All in all good lunch but better places to go.

The view is great, and can't be beaten on a sunny day. Apart from that, this place lacks ambience, with a mish-mash decor inside.

We stopped there for an afternoon coffee, and were disappointed with the limited range of counter food available. The berry brownie and citrus slice we chose tasted pretty good though. The coffee was acceptable, but not wonderful.

With the location, this cafe could be really great instead of being ordinary.

You'll need a car to get out here, but it's worth it - especially if you go early in the morning - you'll almost have the place to yourself. Well made breakfast, good coffee and lively staff. But, really the best part is having a good breakfast while in a window seat looking out over Wellington Harbor and the green shoreline across the way.

We choose an early dinner with our kids after a day in the sun on another amazing Wellington day! The seafood chowder is must have but overpriced along with the other dishes on the menu. Very average service, can't help but think the service staff are just too young and don't have any care. Unbeatable view and awesome coffee!
