Always a friendly place to pop into to catch up with friends. Nice round seating spot if it’s free to hid away in and chat. Tea is good and lots of nice nibbles to chose from to go with your drink.

Great experience. Looking for a healthy, delicious breaky after a night of beersies and chicken wings... found Gotham and BAM - a GREAT flat white and a deeeeelicious vegetarian breaky - the chilli beans were amazing. Highly recommend.

Located own one of Wellington's laneways - this place served good coffee and a fantastic breakfast of creamed mushrooms and poached eggs on sourdough. A delicious way to start my day. Yum!

Fun little hole in the wall place. Ordered coffees along with a BLT, eggs Benedict and French toast. Service was fantastic. Food was very good. If I could rate 4.5 I would.
