Baobab Cafe is worth the journey to Newtown. It's one of Mum and my regulars when she comes to Welly. The staff are super friendly, and there's a delightful outdoor area, with a back yard feel, which is great in summer! I've caught a live band there at night—it was a bit cramped and noisy, good if you like socialising. They make a delicious vegan burger, and beautiful coffee. Give it a go!
