“Great service and meals”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 20 October 2013

Came here for brunch on Sunday after a fairly late night out. Heard really good things about the cafe, so decided to give it a shot. Staff were awesome, really friendly and singing along to the music. Ordered bacon and scrambled eggs which was cooked perfectly, found that all the meals were just big enough- not too huge, but not too small.
Coming back here when I'm in Wellington next.

“Never a disappointment here”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 5 October 2013

We are coming here for a while now and never been disappointed. We had brunch on a Saturday afternoon and the place was packed. We ordered a tomato soup and a New York style cheese sandwich with relish and salami. The sandwich consists of slabs of tasty bread with lots of cheese and other fillings. The soup was very tasty and fresh.
The bill is nicely priced.
By the way the coffee is excellent here!
We'll be back!

“Pleasant place to eat or have a drink”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 4 October 2013

This is another welcome 'local' for those of us who live in the city. It's an unpretentious place. It is what it is - a cafe that has good fare, a wine list featuring local wines and helpful, friendly staff. The calamari was a good entree. We had the beef salad (tasty, with a bit of tang) and the pulled pork burger with fries. Both filled a gap. The wee treat was the sticky date pudding. I want to go back for just that and a macchiato. Thanks to the team at Gotham.

“Nice brunch, friendly staff”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 21 September 2013

My wife and I dropped in for brunch straight away we were greeted and asked how they could help. We were showed a table and given a menu, approx 5 minutes later we were asked if we would like something to drink so we ordered coffees and our brunch. Coffee's arrived quickly and were good coffee, our meals not far behind so quick service. We both agreed that the food was great but a little on the expensive side $48 for two brunches and two coffees.

“unimpressed by rude waitress”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 4 September 2013 via mobile

Popped in at 7.30 last night, place was virtually empty and I was greeted by a waitress who promptly ran over to tell me the place was fully booked and they weren't taking any more tables (there were approx 6 people in the place). When I advised we were just after takeaway coffee, she rudely said "it doesn't matter". Just my e perience but will probably never visit again.
