Awesome food choices and great selection of vegan and vegetarian option. Loads of breakfast/brunch choices than dinner. Craving for late night hot chocolate and a bite then not far to go, Midnight Espresso is open till 3 in the morning. My favourite is gluten free Almond Cookie. Must try. If not available at counter, ask politely and they will get it out from freezer.
As a vegetarian, it's very unusual for me to be able to walk into a cafe and be able to order almost everything on the menu, but Midnight Espresso is one of those places. I believe that everything on the menu can be made vegan, so the few cabinet foods with meat are the only things I wouldn't order. They also offer almond milk for your coffee as well as regular and soy milks, which is great for people with digestive disorders like IBS who need to follow low-FODMAP diets.
A very good range of cabinet food (both sweet and savory) to cater for all dietary requires. They also make an excellent coffee and decent milkshakes too. Where it is located on Cuba St means there is always a lot of foot traffic so sometimes there is a bit of a wait.
Midnight espresso, or 'Midnight' to the locals is a Wellington institution, and one of my favourite places to eat, or grab a coffee. Eclectic, quirky, retro, urban, unique are all words I use to describe the Midnight vibe.
The cafe is alive with art and a colourful mural that stretches the length of the wall—their old-school pinball machine and Pac-man table take pride of place. I'm regularly delighted by their choice in music.
They offer an array of delicious vegan food, and the staff make a mean coffee. I recommend the tofu burger. For you night owls the cafe is open really late, so you're well looked after for your 2am munchies.
