Been here a couple times now and can't fault the food. I usually get the best ugly bagel with halloumi and it's amazing! Best milkshakes too - highly recommend. Located in Lyall Bay with ocean views in an old lifeguard building. Extremely popular however and at times the wait is crazy!!! Also not the most accessible due to the narrow stairs and the bathrooms are a bit yuck.
One often has to queue to get a table at the iconic Maranui Cafe—but its worth it. If you're lucky you get a table by the window, with a panoramic view overlooking the surf. The food and coffee is delicious, and there are vegan options available. The staff are friendly and welcoming—and the bold, eclectic decor make you feel like you're at your bach by the sea.
This is hands down my favourite cafe in all of Wellington. Go for one of the little tables by the window and enjoy the view of Lyall Bay. It is always super busy (a sign of how popular it is) and there can be a bit off a wait on the weekends so plan ahead.
