We live in Wellington but often travel to the Kapiti coast to meet with friends for a feed. Our friend suggested we try this place and was not to sure what it was about.

The four of us went for brunch, was almost difficult to choose as the menu was not the usual brunch selection which is great to see something different to choose instead of the same ole selection on offer everywhere.

We all selected something different. My partner had the special of the day burger, he thought it was excellent. Most impressed it was a burger that you could actually pick up and eat without it falling apart.

I had a crispy lamb salad dish which at first I thought OK what the....but after getting into all the flavours together it was very tasty. Just the right size meal too!

The staff were very friendly, fun and relaxed. Could not fault the service. The place itself is really interesting, fresh and clean.

I would not call the food expensive, not sure why some of the comments have said that.

We all agreed that we would be back one day and I hope this place does well!! Good luck!

Hi Paul M, Thank you for coming up from Wellington, choosing us for brunch and sharing your experience. Sounds like your table chose a great selection off the menu and enjoyed our approach to both food and service. Definitely keep us in mind for when you back on the Coast. We’ll have the grill going, the booth ready and the tunes playing for when you do! Until then, have an awesome day! - The Brunch & Burger Team

Average burgers we thought very greasy unfortunately. Crisscut fries also very greasy. Very friendly staff though :)
We will try again maybe as we see some other good reviews.

Hi Janigel
Thanks for coming to see us! The only time extra grease is acceptable is on screen when watching a young Michelle Pfeiffer take over the mantle from John and Olivia on a rainy weekend. We're glad the team looked after you so well and we've got some great brunch options that may be more to your liking for next time.

I had been hearing some great things about the place but on both occasions I went It was just sort of mediocre and for expensive prices.
Because it said brunch I was expecting a great selection of breakfasts. Selection was poor. The bacon was burnt and too salty.
Next time I had a burger - pulled pork. Just average. Very tough. No great flavours.
The milkshakes looked great , my son had one but at $9! It wasn’t that great.
My feeling was if you are only going to do two things (burger and brunch) and your menu is limited then those things should be done very well and it wasn’t.
Staff lovely. Decor great and very clean.
Missed the mark for me.

Pulled pork and lamb shoulder burgers both delicious. Crisscut fries crunchy and yummy. Would have taken a pic but scoffed everything too quickly ;)
An absolute winner - we will be back !

Standard of food has slipped dramatically since my initial 5 out of 5 rating. The Ham and Cheese croquettes looked like they had been dropped on the floor and the fish burger has shrunk and contained a tiny fillet.
The only saving grace was the friendly service.

Hi CS L, we're very sorry to hear that your last visit didn't measure up. Disagreeable croquettes and burgers are definitely not menu items. Friendly service is always on offer though, so we're glad we could take care of you on that front. We're hoping you'll see that we're committed to raising our game next time round. Thanks for your feedback and support - The Brunch & Burger team.
