The food was overall pretty good for brunch. Only complaint would be their bread doesn’t hold up well and I’m not sure why they don’t butter it. The potatoes hash they make is absolutely delicious and the rest of the food was very well cooked....More

This place hasn't changed much since it opened (which I think was somewhere in the late 80s or early 90s). The food is perfect for brunch or very late night snacks - a personal favourite is the generously sized nachos - they taste great. It's...More

Wandered up after eating at Laundry. Had a really good coffee and cheesecake made on the premises! Cool vibe and friendly staff for our first night and first visit to Wellington.

Two of us visited this place when after working late, we had little options to have dinner after 10 pm. The staff were friendly enough and there was an ecclectic mix of customers. Mostly students I noticed. The menu seemed vegetarian for the most part....More

We called in for coffee mid-morning on a Sunday. Funky vibe and not too much of a wait to be served. The coffee was excellent, but I was disappointed with the food options. Looking for a sweet treat to see me home but the counter...More

Midnight, as the locals refer to it, has been around for aeons and is always a good place to grab a coffee, have a natter, and people-watch.

Went for a coffee, myself and fellow customer in hysterics over how the staff were so interested in socialising with each other and totally oblivious to extending waiting time. They took so long to complete each minor task in making a coffee due to stopping...More
