“Among the best breakfasts in Wellington”
Reviewed November 20, 2012

A half-block away from the Museum Hotel - Joe's Garage is about the best place to start one's Kiwi morning! The egg's in NZ are amazing - there is nothing in the USA that compares. There are a number of dishes - all full-sized. The Long Black's are strong and flavorful and the Flat White's are fluffy! We started 5 of our 6 morning's here. Don't miss it!

“Great Food Great Staff”
Reviewed November 8, 2012

Haha love the "Kindergarten Cop" review totally know what your talking about!
Love the vibe from the staff here though who are always attentive and friendly to chat with. Decent meals and cafe culture. Obviously a popular spot for people with kids though.

“Kindergarden Cop Required”
Reviewed November 5, 2012

Shame that this place does great coffee, as it keeps dragging me in every time I visit the waterfront area. The shame is the assault on my eardrums which I am commonly greeted, from all the kids lacking any form of control, screaming and running round this joint with little care for other diners. Its the parents little care for other diners which is the let down.
Food wise, there are some great fresh snacks on offer. I found their porriage to be wanting, but I go back to what great coffee these guys do.

“Delicious!”
Reviewed November 2, 2012 via mobile

Everyone must eat eat here! All food is absolutely perfect and delicious! The chicken meals are especially amazing! Went twice this week and can't wait to go back! Only suggestion- colder water and bigger water bottles for tables.
