“A quick bite!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 23, 2013

We popped in to The Larder for a quick bite while we waited to do a tour at Weta Workshops down the road - great food selection and service. Will definitely visit again next time we're in the area!!

“Food from the heart”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 18, 2013

This restaurant is in my view one of Wellington's top eating places. It does breakfast, lunch and dinner and I think the food is stunning. This is genuinely good food cooked from the heart, Jacob the owner and chef seems to always be there quietly slaving away in the kitchen and Sarah is partner is often out front. She is always very welcoming and charming and you can pretty well guarantee that your meal will be beautifully cooked.
I recently had the buttermilk crepes with stewed rhubarb, nectarines and citrus yoghurt for breakfast. It was so nice, I could have had it all over again.

We went here after visiting the Weta Cave whilst waiting for the bus back into town. Great coffee, good selection, they also have some GF options available.

“Definitely our favourite Wellington restaurant”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 11, 2012

Fabulous food service and atmosphere. Just what you want when going out for a meal.
We try to coordinate a meal when going to or coming from the airport. Jacob and Sarah make
this a very special place. Just wish we lived a little closer so we could come more often.
