I came in to warm up with some hot coco. I also got a piece of carrot cake, but the service was not that great. The cashier mumbled and they were all talking amounst themselves instead of tending to the surrounding tables.

Food is good but service is poor. Staff is walking head down, hard to catch their attention. Expect some wait time, it's always busy.

Just left disgruntled, frustrated and hungry after 2 hours with 5 friends. Specifically made staff aware for dietry requirements and allergy reactions, but no consideration paid to the order. I was offered a new dish that I didn't take, completely lost trust with hungover staff...More

Spanish eggs were really good and coffee was fantastic. Unassuming front and a good atmosphere. Worth my walk from the other end of Wellington.
