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.
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.
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.
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. Hot lemon honey with freshly grated ginger ($5)
Grapefruit & bitter lemon tea ($4.50) – served in a cute china cup. The tea was very refreshing and wasn’t too strong nor bitter.These jars of home-made jam looked super delicious, wish I’d bought a jar!
