Great service and friendly staff with prompt service. The coffee was good but limited cabinet food at lunch time.

Gotham is a brilliant café in the Middle of Wellington which I frequent a lot for business meetings as well as personal dining / coffee. It is my 'go to' cafe in Wellington CBD. Staff, food and coffee are always consistently good. Highly recommend it.

Swung in for a quick breakfast and got exactly what I was looking for. Swift service and the food was fast but good. Not overly fancy which was ok, it was exactly what I ordered, nothing more nothing less. Would happily walk back in tomorrow for much of the same

You just can't fault Gotham. Great service, food is fantastic. I had the BLT, the missus had an omelette. Large portions, awesome flavour. The Hot Chocolates are some of the best you'll find in NZ.
