The best in Wellington coffee and excellent cafe food.

Hi we have just been to el Porteno for my daughters birthday Lisandro did a High Tea for us there were 4 of us, the food was absolutely scrummy it was presented on a 3 tier Cale stand, we had lovely small triangle sandwiches, small muffins, yummy caramel slice and hot small cheese scones with jam and cream, with hot drinks, it was $15.00 per head which I thought very reasonable for the amount of food we were given, it was all presented beautifully. We often go there on a Saturday afternoon for a hot drink and a scone, if it is a nice day we sit outside on the lovely outside furniture they have a great variety of food and I would highly recommend them a visit. Thanks Trisha

Recently changed ownership and is now called El Porteno. Having been previous regulars of Little Boho we were worried because it seems par for the course that when something great changes hands it goes downhill.

However, this has proved to be the exception to the rule. The coffee and hot drinks are still excellent, the food absolutely delicious with some great new additions, everything is reasonably priced and the staff welcoming and friendly. The new owner even continued to honor the coffee cards for Little Boho even though he was obviously under no obligation to.

The only caveat I would put is that it is a small place with seating for maybe twelve (plus a couple of outside tables) so there is a chance when you show up that you may have to grab a takeaway – especially during super busy times on weekend mornings.

Highly recommended.
