It was ok. Cool vibe. Good coffee (but it’s pretty hard to find bad coffee in Wellington) .. Eggs Benedict was pretty average, not sure what was wrong, and it’s such a standard nowadays it will never be amazing, but it was really just ok....More

Coffee was fine but eggs benie was very average. The ham may have been in the fridge for a few days. The staff behind the counter were friendly but the guy who delivered the food needed to tidy up his act. Maybe i struck it...More

Love this place. The food is amazing. The cafe is quite basic but the coffees are good and I would highly recommend the French toast or Eggs Benedict. It’s also reasonably priced which is nice.

Always a friendly place to pop into to catch up with friends. Nice round seating spot if it’s free to hid away in and chat. Tea is good and lots of nice nibbles to chose from to go with your drink.
