I often visit Baobab when I want to go somewhere for a catch up with a friend, it is the sort of place you can comfortably sit for hours and have a catch up. There is a very cute outside area out the back with a resident cat. They have live music from time to time and poetry events. The food is pretty good and the staff are friendly but it's the atmosphere that really make the place. Downsides are the sometimes limited range of cabinet food and the toilets can be quite grotty at times.
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!
