234 Cuba St, Te Aro, Wellington 6011, New Zealand
Very tasty baked eggs here! Burned the roof of my mouth, but that's my own fault. There is a sign on the wall that tells you to relax and wait to pay at the table... Ignore it and either ask for the check or walk up to the register to settle up. The waitress was super considerate and didn't rush the check on us, but we were waiting per the instructions on the sign.
Food was very ordinary for the hype and the price - not worth the stop, at least based on the food we got. The Cuban sandwich was made with meats that were just weird in the sandwich, and it just tasted like a cheap attempt at a replica. The burrito was okay, but also not a standout. Interesting stop for the ambience and decor, but not much more, unfortunately.
Good coffee, terrific food, good location in welly CBD, poor distinction between customer and staff members, incredibly poor layout of store and no space to move around at all. Admittedly, we arrived and it was packed! However, after a 15min wait to be seated we found a space in the corner window that was big enough for 2 people. I had a really difficult time moving from our spot in the corner window to go to the till area and to the bathroom etc etc. Moving around the store is difficult given there is minimal room between the back of the seats as well as customers and staff all trying to move around the crammed area. In the plus side, the food was really really good. we had nachos and some coffee. They were both delivered in a timely manner and we're hot and tasty. (No photos of the nachos sorry). The layout of the store is something to be desired but otherwise a good experience. Staff need name badges/uniform/cap to distinguish who the are. I made the embarrassing mistake of asking a patron if they worked there. (They were waiting by the till waiting to pay as well).
Great place! We ordered flat white and Turmeric latte, which both tasted mellow positive. We had vegan bowl that was yummy and delicious. Other tables ordered some nachos and snacks, which looked really good. The atmosphere was cozy and clean. Quick and nice service. A solid 5 star and will go there again.
Was recommended to me by my Father in Law. If you are a fan of Waffles you cant go past the Bannana Bacon waffles at Fidel's. Its a very trendy Wellington hidden cafe that I cant recommend enough. Friendly knowledgeable staff. Great atmosphere as well. Be aware that you may have to wait a little while to be seated. Very popular.
