One of the worst value for money venues in the city. $30 for a burger and chips at lunch and not very good food at that. Nice venue and good service but not worth the money for what you get. Much better food a few...More

We chanced upon Ti Kouka when we were walking around Wellington looking for somewhere for brunch/coffee. Unsure of what we'd find when we walked up the stairway from the street, we got a great welcome and were surprised by the lovely bright dining area. Top...More

We sat upstairs in Ti Kouka with a great view of the street. The breakfasts were excellent as was the service. A really brilliant place for breakfast or a snack in the daytime.

Ti Kouka cafe was started by brothers Jesse Simpson and Shepherd Elliott in November 2010. Jesse runs the front of house and makes the beautiful coffees and Shepherd runs the kitchen and makes the delicious food. We use local, sustainable and organic produce when ever possible. We use Flight's beautiful direct trade and organic coffee and Zorganic's milk and other dairy products. We also offer free range and organic eggs, chicken and juices. We believe that using the best ingredients gives our food and drinks an edge that you can taste. We also believe we have a responsibility to do what we can to make sure we can continue to have the standard of produce we enjoy now. We compost all our scraps, recycle everything we can and will continue to improve as we go. In November of 2013 we opened Leeds St Bakery to supply TK and many others around wellington with Beautiful organic artisan breads.
