There was once I came here with friends and ordered the following:
Eggs benedict (was made very nicely), homemade muesli (the lady was very nice about serving soy milk instead of milk unlike some places) and flapjacks (quite fluffy).
Serving time was slow but still alright, lucky we weren’t in a hurry.

After waiting for some response and none seemed forthcoming, and everyone had finished, we paid and waited around while one of our group went to the bathroom. At no point was any apology offered, nor any effort made to address the issue; no discount or replacement was offered either.
During our wait, it was clear to staff that we were discussing the issue and a member was told to speak to us, she didn’t seem to know what to do other than to agree that it was not a satisfactory situation. One of the co- owners was behind the counter but did not make effort with us to address the issue.
Had my uneaten potato cake been re-offered with a fresh portion of salad with a small apology I would have left perfectly happy and not thought much more of the situation.
I had asked the 2 staff members I dealt with would they be happy to eat that black rotten sludgy salad or would the chef be happy to eatMore it; they said “No, they wouldn’t”, then why does this cafe expect their customers to eat it? Lack of respect for the customer. Poor, poor poor.
It is unfortunate as I have dined here in the past on several occassions and had no complaints, but never returning and not recommending.

We noted a slight anomaly on the pricing front, with the Big Breakfast offering immediate price point advanatge over shorter options when sides are included. This limited choices to a short serving (poached eggs on sourdough for example) or the Big Breakfast, since when a side of bacon is added, the differential favours going straight tho the Big Breakfast. This pricing strategy may encourage more purchases of the big breakfast, but is not so customer friendly if you are after a lighter breakfast.
Good coffee, prompting a second cup from two of our party and very good service. A slight confusion, partly of our own making, in regards to one of the cups of coffee was met with good nature by the staff and even an unnecessary personal apology from the manager – a nice indication of good customer service which was polite, friendly and attentive without being overly so.
The atmosphere of the café is good, nothing exceptional, but it was pleasant anMored comfortable. The panoramic windows presented a truly stunning view of some of Wellington’s most appealing frontages (and one or two rear-ends as well).
