I've been on previous visits to Wellington and always experienced excellent food and service, my rainy Sunday breakfast experience was no different. Popped in just after 10am and it was already reasonably busy, menu is available outside for perusing if you need to the motivation to enter or a little more time to decide. Interacted with 3 of the staff... More

Actually I can only rate the service here as I walked out within 5 minutes of entering. Only 2 staff on with multiple tables of people waiting for their order. Was not acknowledged so I left. Shame as the menu looked nice.

Visited a year ago and wasn't impressed so thought I would give it another try! Staff still absent most of the time, there is no atmosphere, breakfast ok but not amazing, saucer was dirty as was the tea pot, tables not cleared even though it was virtually empty! And I still find the music very depressing and not conducive to... More

Lovely service, nice food, relaxed atmosphere, great value for money. Do visit. Proper tea and the portions were so big I didn't have room for the delicious looking cakes.

The glass we grabbed to get a glass on water from had a huge bright pink lipstick mark on it, cutlery had water spots. Banoffe cheesecake was good but besides that, not amazing.

The best coffee I have ever had! Just Devine! Big breakfast is huge, m husband had to eat half of mine. Lovely quality and the mushrooms were perfect. I think they should offer a half sized big breakfast for smaller appetites, they would sell well! Friendly and efficient service. The cabinet food looked delicious too! Will definitely be back next... More

Friendly staff but dirty tables. We ordered the chicken and mushroom dish which was very average. No real flavour and as other reviewers have said quite like a microwave meal. The other dish we got was the chicken pesto pasta which was bland and the chicken was not good quality. Price matches quality.

The Soho Browns Big Breakfast is satisfying. Enjoying the nice meal in a relaxing environment. Cold drinks are bit expensive though.
