Mingle with the many locals who gather here, be it for their first coffee of the day, a social weekend brunch, lunch or dinner, late-night wine, or a music gig in the laid-back lounge. The multi-format café–restaurant–wine bar caters to every meal or mood. By day there are homemade cakes, friands, to-die-for caramelized onion muffins, and a full breakfast menu. In the evening mains encompass contemporary Kiwi flavors with an international twist. Local lamb is always on the menu, as are tapas, with suggested wine pairings. Dine alfresco on the Victoria Avenue pavement, or snuggle into a leather banquette in the comfy lounge. Wireless Internet is available.
