Excellent service and pleasant staff. Only thing stopping this being a five star was the pancakes being slightly too “baking soda-y”

I visited Neo Cafe and Eatery last Wednesday and was taken away with the service and quality of meal! Loved the overall vibe and staff was very friendly.

Came to Neo after searching Keto friendly cafes online and discovering Neo made its own almond milk and offered lots of cabinet keto options (according to reviews). Sadly these were not true as NO keto options in cabinet and advised by waitress that they no...longer make their own almond milk!!! After seriously considering making a different choice for breakfast, the waitress advised that they COULD make almond milk coffee from a box so we stayed. The coffee was ok (not great) but my garlic mushrooms were yum. Two members of our party had poached eggs that were over cooked. So pretty disappointing on the whole. We wouldn’t bother to go back. Am sure there are better cafes in Wellington yet to be discovered :) Shame.More

Thank you Neo for a great breakfast experience. We stumbled on Neo Cafe online after what appeared to be most Wellington Cafes closed. A little walk from our Hotel but we’ll worth it. Fantastic service and really good food and presentation.
