We stopped in for a coffee after a really nice walk to the water. The café was packed but we were able to get a seat out on the street. The coffee was delicious and we served quickly. It is always nice to try these small local places - we were very pleased.

We stopped at this cafe, just around the corner from the New World supermarket, many times during our stay in Island Bay, as a couple or with more of our NZ family. The kids loved the fluffies and stock of toys at the back. We usually had just drinks (the tea and coffee were both good) but sometimes I couldn't... More

A little gem - we enjoyed the pies, coffee, friendly staff. The sweet treats also looked good and it's a busy, buzzing wee place. We will be back!

Best pies in Wellington! Check out the Angry Mexican. Also a range of other eats, and reasonable coffee.

Visited this cafe and selection was fantastic, from menu to counter food. Has holly's eggs with rosti and it was fabulous. Cake selection looked great as well and was so tempted. Will be back

Reasonable food but great coffee (flight beans) and yummy milkshakes (recommend blueberry). Busy little spot and can be tricky getting a table due to cafe being pretty small.

Blue Belle Cafe has definitely been one of the most successful cafes in Island Bay. It is a great spot to pop in for a coffee or grab a bite to eat. So conveniently located right in the Island Bay shops, you can walk here from anywhere in Island Bay! The staff are always so friendly as well and everything... More
