I love Wellington! It's an amazing city, a real jewellery box at the bottom of the North Island. First time I'm visiting Kaffee Eis. I'm sold! The guys just opened today a few mins ago and 4 of 9 outdoor tables are already occupied - it tells something. They are helpful, cute. Sweet as :) I had a Pastrami-Gerkin sandwich.... More

Visited waterfront and Cuba street cafes over a weekend. Lunch sandwiches are varied and interesting fillings. Ice creams are to die for. Interesting flavors. Had breakfast in the Cuba street cafe. Bagel with cream cheese and jam. Yum... Could have easily eaten two.

I absolutely love the Gelato, and this location is a perfect spot along the waterfront to grab one while walking along in the sun. Staff are always friendly, and welcome to try a few flavours before you buy. Some of my favourite flavours are Apple and Cinnamon, and the Lemon Sorbet. You can have the gelato in either a cone...

We stopped by for a ice coffee and were not disappointed. You can select from a large gelato selection, which of course you can just eat. Ice coffee was great. Lovely location right by the water (when it's not a windy day and the sun is out in Wellington.

Mmmmmmmm gelato. With 3 cafes in Wellington Kaffee Eis is growing. They also make a great cup of coffee, so this is a popular location for people taking a walk around the waterfront and the lagoon.

After visiting Wellington Underground Market, Kaffee Eis was right at the corner and it would seem to be a place to go during the afternoon. The selection of Gelato was impressive and not to mention the quality. We tried the Pistachio, Stracciatella and Raspberry Sorbetto. Thumbs up.

From the moment you walk through the door this bustling gelato bar is just fabulous! Great service every time! You're able to taste flavours before purchases, dangerous! Just an ideal place for desert on the wander 😉
