I like Espressoholic it has a realness to it...including its customers. Moccacino was good and the caramel slice delicious. I like that they (still) offer cream and/or yoghurt with your cakes. Service was friendly. I'd recommend Espressoholic for good coffee and cake.

We visited for tea after having a breakfast there a few months ago, we weren't disappointed again and meals were large and satisfying, the fish burger was excellent and the kids loved their chicken and bacon cheese melt, would recommend anyone

I've been going to Espressoholic since it was down on Courtenay Place and recently I've noticed that it's become a little bit tired. It's got everything that it needs to continue to be one of Wellingtons signature cafes but it feels like it hasn't quite...More

A fun little cafe on Cuba street, easy to find. Very quirky decor and a nice little outdoor spot out the back. Happy friendly staff. Reasonable prices and yummy food from both the menu and cabinet.
