Great chilled out / casual atmosphere. Food is well priced, comes out quickly and tastes great as well.

My meal was underwhelming and I felt the cafe lacked atmosphere. I could smell the cigarette smoke from the outside smoking area as well which wasnt pleasant. Overall I wished I had gone elsewhere and probably won’t go back. Plenty of other cafes along Cuba...More

The Eggs Benedict are just perfect. Not too much portion-wise, very tasty and done just right. The coffee is really good, and we’ve had nothing but friendly good service here. Love the dark and light side contrasting cafes and the quirky decor.

Perfect for a business or friends meeting in a cosy spot on a cold day! Service smiling, coffee hot and delicious, muffin generous in size, filling, and butter allowance! All good. This will be our go-to place in a very interesting part of Wellington City.,

This was perhaps the best coffee we've had in Wellington to date. Quirky shop and very happy with the dark side of things.

The first time I came here the service was quick, food was hot yet the hot chocolate was almost cold. The second and most recent time I came here I waited 40 minutes for my cabinet food to come to the table. The others at...More
