Best coffee in the world - definitely Wellington, and New Zealand... so smooth. Incredible baristas here!! Great food too.

I took my boyfriend and three friends to this restaurant to celebrate their arrival to New Zealand after spending time in lockdown. I was super disappointed and embarrassed with the service they provided. After waiting over 30 minutes for anyone to just approach us and...take our order we chose the 2for1 burger deal and ordered six burgers in total, another 30 minutes passed and not even the fries we ordered as an entree had arrived. 45 minutes in total from the time the waiter took our order the burgers finally arrived except from mine. Apparently they forgot about it and I had to wait for even longer as if i didnt waited enough. The staff commented "sorry, do you want a free drink then?" after she realised a burger was missing. After all of this, we left supper disappointed by the food and service of the restaurant. It wasn't even full, and i don't want to even imagine how it would have been if it was.More

We live in Petone and have been a few times now but each time we have been left disappointed. The decor and location right on the beach are great but it feels like when they are busy the quality of the food nose dives. I...really would not advise queuing at the weekend there are so many better places on Jackson Street where you don’t have to wait 50 mins for a plate of pancakes on top of of a 20 min wait for a table! Great for a milkshake but disappointing food.More

First time here. After many friends telling us to go here. So glad we did. Went for brunch. Great food, service and had a seat out on the balcony on a beautiful sunny morning to celebrate my Husbands birthday. Will definitely be back. !!!!!!

I always enjoy this Cafe! Great selection of food, consistenty good quality food and reasonable prices. My favorite place to visit in Wellington. I would highly recommend! Also don't be discouraged if there is a que for a table - this generally moves quickly and...the food is worth the waitMore

Nine of us came here for a birthday brunch and it was delicious. We had good service and the avocado on toast was delicious. They also have amazing freshly squeezed orange juice and a dessert cabinet that will make you drool!

The queues for this place were massive so we definitely wanted to try it out (it also came recommended). The milkshake here was delicious and they were even happy for me to modify it which I thought was awesome. Breakfast didn't blow me away, but...still, it was exactly what we needed!More
