Had a yum breakfast and coffee. Close to 5/5 just not quite there.... plates cleared while someone still eating, Pannacotta not quite right, etc. It has to be perfect to get a 5 from us!

The staff were pleasant and the atmosphere was nice. What really sets this place off is that the food is really good. Fresh and well seasoned. A judicious set of menu offerings. We had breakfast and it was money well spent.

The almond buttermilk pancakes were fantastic! A wonderful gluten-free treat to start my day. Other GF options available. Friendly/genuine staff. Central location. I'll definitely be back when I am in Wellington again.
