Wellington was our last port dock in New Zealand. We arrived at 7am on a Sunday and nothing much was open. Luckily I had looked up cafes, which would be open, and found this place on Cuban Street. The day was cold and cloudy (looking like rain).

Maybe it was the weather, but I really liked the warm wooden ambience of this place! It was a good refuge for an early morning which was way to cold. A very pretty cafe actually.
A nice hot drink to start the day. And it came with a big soft marshmallow (looks homemade!). On their shelves they also sell marmalade/jams and breads!
Their website even has recipes!
A nice big flat white!
I wasn’t really fond of the bacon (too much fat) but the scrambled eggs and toast was delicious! Lots of butter? Mmm..
A special smoked salmon! The servings are a decent size so you’ll feel satisfied after. As their menu says, all their eggs and bacon are free range grown in NZ and organic milk is used in their coffees.
What else is around?
- Floriditas is one of the many cafes and quirky stores in Cuba Street. While we were there, it was unfortunately too early for most things to be open but a peek inside and past a few places shows a flavour of cafes and stores similar to Newtown and Surry Hills in Sydney.
- Not far away is the harbour foreshore where there is the Museum of New Zealand Te Papa, which hosts great interactive exhibitions. Entry is free!
