Wellington sits on the southernmost tip of New Zealand’s North Island. You could be fooled into thinking it was just another port town, but Wellington is a cultural and activity hub. There are museums, galleries, street art, beachside neighbourhoods and parks bustling with wildlife.
If your travels revolve around finding the best food a city has to offer than take a culinary tour around Wellington. It’s full of incredible cafes and restaurants.
When you arrive in the city you may well find yourself caffeine deprived, fear not, Wellington is the coffee capital (or so the locals will tell you).
Customs by Coffee Supreme is on Ghuznee Street and they provide the best coffee. It’s not a huge cafe, but the interiors are slick and worth taking a seat and watching the world go by.
The Hangar on Dixon Street again serves incredible coffee in amazing surrounds. They roast their beans in house!
People’s Coffee is located in the Wellington neighbourhood of Newtown. It’s a gorgeous spot with gorgeous service. And a little quieter than the hustle and bustle of the city centre locations.
Next for food try Little Penang which is excellent for vegetarians, it’s located on Dixon Street so right in the heart of the city. Expect great tasting, fresh food, with none of the frills.
Prefab Eatery on Jessie Street is a great place for brunch or lunch and again amazing coffee. The eatery provides fresh local cuisine at its finest.
Finally for great food and wine try Field & Green on Wakefield Street. They have great gluten free options for diners as well as an impressive wine list. The food is some of the best in Wellington.
