Wellington Cafe in the Heart of the City

Great menu, excellent coffee, warm and friendly environment

So says René, one of our regulars. Whether you’re looking for an early breakfast with your business colleagues to fuel up on the good stuff before that big meeting, or just dropping in to meet a few friends over coffee and some home baking, Victoria St Cafe is the place to warm your cockles. We’re on the corner of Victoria and Bond streets in Wellington’s CBD, a stone’s throw from Civic Square.

“Spent a week in Wellington and had b/fast every day at this cafe, plus some lunches. The food was tasty and the service was amazing. The staff went out of their way to provide a great experience for us. My husband is in a wheelchair and we were so well looked after – it was really special. We felt like we had made new friends and we will definitely be back if we get back to Wellington.”

“The very best coffee and scrambled eggs in Wellington!”

“The Victoria breakfast is awesome. Perfectly poached eggs and deliciously crispy bacon.”

“I’ve been coming here for years. They know who I am and the special way I like my coffee.”
