Capitol in the Capital!

I love this wee café/restaurant perfectly situated on the corner of Cambridge Terrace and Marjoribanks Street. It’s very Parisian and the people watching is out of this world.  Step inside with me. Continue reading

In their heyday – brewpub

Welly is now not only the coffee capital of the world but making a name for itself with craft beer. Breweries or brewpubs are just popping up everywhere. I love the fact that even if you’re not a beer drinker, they offer spirits, all types of wine,  bubbles and booch. Today we visited the coolest, funky, bright, hip brewpub on upper Cuba Street; HeyDay beer. Continue reading

Bambuchi; a new player on the field!

Bambuchi has snuck quietly into the Hataitai ‘burbs, next to the White Rabbit Café. Local BFF foodie friend Annette recommended this place. She knows me so well. Being foodie competitive, I couldn’t believe she beat me here first.

Green, green grass of home!

My last minute organised catchup with friends at the Botanist in Lyall Bay, proved worthwhile. We were all newbies and terribly excited.  I was warned about the bad service and wait for coffees/food, however that so did not happen for us. I take positive good vibes with me and always have a pleasant experience. It was perfect on all counts with a stunning Welly day to top it off. Continue reading

Finally Mr Go’s has been given a second chance and has reopened on Taranaki St, opposite Les Mills. It also had time to make some adjustments to the menu in the interim. Peeps we have authentic, Asian hawker food right on our doorstep. Continue reading

Hey rubber duckie get your ears on, as it looks like we’ve found us a Tomboy. Tomboy! The cutest, quaintest eatery in town, tucked into Marjoribanks St, in the hip hood of Mt Victoria in Wellington. Continue reading

I was so excited to learn that the Beach House & Kiosk, a former cringeworthy café, not far from my Brooklyn hood, had been kissed by a frog and turned into a Princess. All credit of course goes to ex Elements café owners Scott and Nicola Barrett. These guys have a great rep and they’ve struck gold yet again.
