We called in for a quick burger for dinner, but the dessert selection is the real winner. So good in fact we went back the next night just for the dessert and coffee. Very friendly staff and a laid-back atmosphere.

With time on my hands a visit to Espressoholic in Cuba Street for a Flat White was the way to go. The outside of the Café is inviting with amazing graffiti. Inside it’s much as I remembered being some time since I was last there. I have always enjoyed the coffee served with this café serious about serving great coffee.... More

Have had the coffee from here before and recommend but the food was a first for me and I was very happy. I had the bacon nutty and was more than satisfied. The cabinet food looked great too and I wouldn't hesitate to go back.

Came here for lunch on a gloomy day. Lovely and cosy inside. Love the decor. Great fish burger, nice tasty basic food. Will certainly come back next visit to Wellington.

I love this place. It's got several seating areas that encompass dim and moody, light and bright, and outdoors. The food is always good quality, the staff is friendly, and the prices about average for this kind of establishment. It's the first place I think of when someone wants to meet, or to take the family out for breakfast, or... More

Espressoholic can be quite a hit or miss kind of place. Sometimes it's good, other times it can be a tad mediocre. For a start the interior is in desperate need of a revamp, as does the lighting, but the food definitely makes up for this. The counter food - including the baked goods is extremely tasty and perfect for... More

We noticed how busy this cafe was on our first morning, so stopped for breakfast on our second day. We ordered the muesli, with yoghurt & a large serving of berries, delicious. And avocado, tomato & pesto with pita bread. Two hot chocolates were also great. Highly recommend.

A regular stop when in Wellington and again I wasn't dissapointed. The service is warm and friendly, staff are quick to smile and offer genuine conversation. Ample variety of cabinet food to cater to all tastes including a more than tempting sweet tooth selection. Board menu is great, again they cater to all with some excellent vegetarian options. I had... More

Has a variety of indoor and outdoor seating areas and good, possibly even healthy food. The staff are outgoing and keen to help. Great for a small meal, breakfast or just a latte. I admit I've been there a few times. Unlike many Wellington cafes the place has been around for a while, but the owner keeps it fresh, and... More
