We visited this cafe while in Wellington for the weekend and it was our favourite. We sat outside on Cuba St soaking in the atmosphere, and the service was great. I had the vegetarian plumster which was very nice, and it came with hollandaise sauce on the side which was a great touch. The coffee was great too, and nicely presented. Would definitely come back.

Visited the cafe for breakfast. Didn't have to wait long for our food and the service was great. Complimentary chilled water was placed on our table while we waited for our brekkie. Eggs bene cooked to perfection and the coffee was delicious served with marshmellows and chocolate fish! Prices were reasonable and atmosphere was relaxing. Would recommend to others, and return for a meal when next in Wellington.

This was the last of 6 places that we visited sampling Burger Wellington entries, so I may have been burgered out. The cafe has a kind of boho funky feeling, and a really relaxed atmosphere. We had a friend with several food allergies with us and the waitress was quite good about checking options with him and the chef, and creating a great meal for him. We had really quick service both with food and drinks (which is important to me).
The burger was quite simple compared to some we had tried, but done perfectly with fresh tasty ingredients. Also had a good look at the table next doors plates served just after we ordered which looked quite promising too.
The food and drinks were pretty reasonable priced.

I have enjoyed dinner at Plum Cafe on a number of occasions. The food has always been to a high standard, tasty, well presented and reasonably priced. I usually call ahead and book a number, as there aren't too many tables and it's always been pretty popular. The service is friendly, quick and the food has never taken too long to arrive, no matter how busy the restaurant is. Like I say, I've been here numerous times and yet to have a bad experience...

We ate brunch here with a family group of 6 adults. Everyone was happy with their food and drinks. The service was friendly and efficient. Although they were busy they seemed to have everything under control. We would return and recommend.
