Perfect for a business or friends meeting in a cosy spot on a cold day! Service smiling, coffee hot and delicious, muffin generous in size, filling, and butter allowance! All good. This will be our go-to place in a very interesting part of Wellington City.,

Have had the coffee from here before and recommend but the food was a first for me and I was very happy. I had the bacon nutty and was more than satisfied. The cabinet food looked great too and I wouldn't hesitate to go back.
