Definitely the best brekkie in Wellington. Never had a bad meal or coffee here and staff are amazing too so that's a bonus.

Loved this cute wee place which we visited for breakfast/brunch during our short stay in Wellington. Great menu options with interesting and well thought-out veggie options, clean modern decor and very friendly staff. We would absolutely visit Neo again if back in Wellington!

After struggling to choose from the menu items - the banana bread French toast looked yummy - I chose the healthy veggie breakfast - it was delicious and very filling. Great café vibe with friendly, relaxed and calm staff.

We stayed just around the corner to this wee cafe so popped in every day for breakfast. The food is lovely as is the staff. The muesli for breakfast is perfect with the best cup of tea.

We pride ourselves on our positive service culture, built on a foundation of gratitude. Neo Cafe & Eatery offers contemporary NZ cafe cuisine celebrating local producers & suppliers and is continually developing exciting offerings for Wellington’s legion of foodies. Our seasonal menu specialises in all day brunch, fresh salads, in-house baking and caters to a range of diets including gluten-free, vegetarian, and vegan.
