Wellington – Floriditas Cafe

You can’t go to Wellington without walking along Cuba Street a million times a day. Not only is it the busiest street in the city, it’s also the place where you find most of the popular cafes in town.IMG_3281

Wellington is well known for its cafe society. Every cafe I visited had its own character, was buzzing with people, but also carried a relaxed vibe. People took their time and enjoyed their meals a lot more.

IMG_3619Floriditas was like a little European getaway in the middle of the city. If you love eggs you have to come here. There’s eggs, eggs and more eggs to choose from, all at reasonable prices.

Ham off the bone with poached eggs ($17.50) – eggs cooked to perfection! We were much too hungry to stop and capture the amazing runny yolk. The dish was simply delicious, with crispy ciabattas and grilled ham.IMG_3639

We also ordered the Ham off the bone with salad greens, beetroot relish and whole wheat sourdough ($18.50). I loved the fact the sourdough was served heated and crispy. The beetroot relish was fresh and went well with the ham. Though the ham on its own was a bit too dry. IMG_3642IMG_3644Hot lemon honey with freshly grated ginger ($5)IMG_3623

Grapefruit & bitter lemon tea ($4.50) – served in a cute china cup. The tea was very refreshing and wasn’t too strong nor bitter.IMG_3646IMG_3659These jars of home-made jam looked super delicious, wish I’d bought a jar!

I’ve heard great things about their dinner menu and baked goods. Will definitely come back to try out their other dishes. IMG_3655

  1. Oh boy I love ham off the bone. It is a wonder why more cafés do not do this. Very economical and versatile.
