I LOVE Midnight Espresso and go every time I'm in Wellington. Sometimes twice in one day when shopping in Cuba St. It oozes character. The food is great. Coffee outstanding. Prices fair and portions generous. It is the opposite of most Auckland cafes!

This is a pretty funky and groovy little cafe conveniently located at Cuba Street. The counter is laden with all the yummy choices of different food and cakes as well as the blackboard choices. Generous portions and great coffee.

This place is awesome! From the great location to the endless menu, you are bound to find something you want. From a smoothie to milkshake to vegan dishes, sit back and enjoy the chill vibe and easy listening jams.

So we went on a family holiday to New Zealand, and I am vegan.... Well I think we hang out here nearly every day! I tried many things of the menu and thoroughly enjoyed every meal! Was so sad when we left !
