Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

The Centennial Coffee House is the place to go if you are looking for amazing food and coffee. The staff are warm, friendly and accomodating. I am not the only person who thinks the Chicken Sandwich is hands down the best Sandwich in Wellington!!

The most delicious chicken sandwich I’ve ever had! The chicken was so tasty and everything was fresh as. Would highly recommend going for lunch.

Here for a birthday brunch. Retro decor, but really interesting menu and excellent coffee. This is my second visit and happy with the quality of the food both times. Reasonably priced and lots of parking.

Person who served me seemed very disinterested. Not friendly or welcoming. I had a bit of a miscommunication with what I ordered, and ended up with the wrong food, so sadly I walked away hungry. Some basic customer service skills would not go astray here.

Tucked away from the beach, not too many people know about this small treasure. Great cabinet food (although I've not eaten off the menu) and great coffee...this is a favourite place of ours.

It is like a jewel hiding in the lane of Lyall Bay. It has the very good counter/cabin food at reasonable prices. The service is fast and friendly. If you don't want to have a long wait, either for a table or for food, you...shall not miss this place. I have tried quiche and paninis of different kinds and have been very satisfied with them all. The Panini is crispy outside and generous ingredients inside with a variety of vegetables. Very good for anyone wanting for a balanced diet. Very good value, too. Mind that it does not have many tables. So good to have a look before trying somewhere else, especially if you don't have much time to wait. The team is very good there. As soon as people left, they clean the table immediately. It is good to see that most customers seem returned customers. It speaks of how people are attracted to it, its services, food, and coffee.More

This is a good place to visit for a quick brunch you can rely on. The food is average brunch fare , nothing bad but nothing startling either. The place looks tired and scruffy rather than the desired "alternative" look. It feels cramped and the...Windows too high to sit in and look out . It lacks ambiance and light. Considering how much money we were spending , the service was tired as well. It's ok to visit if you need food but it wouldn't be my first choice.More
