We always try to stop here when in Wellington. They do great coffee and food. It is tucked away in an alleyway behind the shopping strip and a great little place to sit and refuel. They have a menu as well as some paninis etc in the cabinet. Plus a great selection of cakes. Yummy.

Stopped off for brunch at this busy little cafe tucked down Chews Precinct between Victoria St and Willis St. It has a friendly relaxing vibe. Excellent Havana coffee is served. A small cabinet selection of freshly prepared food is displayed and a good range of options on the menu for brunch or lunch. Staff are friendly and obliging.

Very nice little cafe - friendly, fast and efficient service. Good quality coffee. Nice, relaxing atmosphere and didn't feel the need to move on in a hurry.

Cafe was pleasant and the menu was just what we were looking for on a Sunday at 11.30 but unfortunately coffee was warm and eggs were cold. It was a shame as the eggs would have been the best I had tasted for ages, but cold poached eggs are a definite, No. It was busy but not packed, not really... More

After wandering around on wet Wellington day I stumbled across the café. I ordered the New York cheese sandwich and was pleasantly surprised. It was huge and very delicious. Very good value for money. I look forward to going back again

Excellent coffee, fresh delicious pan inis, friendly service and a free newspaper or wifi. Gotham as one might expect is dark-even the lights are dark, so any optically challenged people might choose to go elsewhere. Like other cafes in Wellington they miss out on weekend and city citizen patronage due to conservative closing hours.
