We had the delicious Spanish eggs for breakfast in this busy, popular cafe. It was tasty, the service excellent and the double shot coffee lattes were hot and invigorating. Well done Fidel's we will visit again!

What a place! There was a long queue but we decided to wait a bit. We got seated in the back of the cafe, which was nice and not that loud and hectic. Altough eveyone mentioned the great coffee, we decided to taste some local craft beer. Together with a seafood pizza and chilly onion rings, we had the perfect... More

My husband and I came here for breakfast while we were in Welly and both really enjoyed our selections. My husband had carrot cake and a breakfast sandwich from the grab-n-go counter and I had the grilled haloumi. Both were tasty and satisfying, as was the chai that I had with it. Our food did take a little while to... More

We got in right on Sunday morning opening time and grabbed a seat in the outdoor area. The food was fabulous! Eggs cooked perfectly, fresh whole grain bread, everything was delicious! Great service and friendly relaxed environment 10/10.

Went here for brunch with a bunch of 20 something's. Definitely suits that age group. Great menu, good coffee, excellent basic food. Indoor and outdoor seating options. Outside is well covered to deal with a howling welly breeze.

One of the most iconic cafés in Cuba St, Wellington. Snickers shake and hot caramel chocolate are must-try. Good coffee as well.

Really really good food and coffee! Had to wait a little while between ordering and eating and the waitress forgot one of our coffees but it was worth the wait. Super tasty!

Fidels is a Wellington institution and you just never tire of it as it just rocks all day long morning, lunch and dinner. This visit, we sat right out the back. I've been here several times but have only sat in the front near the window or in the wee room to the right of the counter or in the... More
