Stumbled across this place today and loved it. Small little place with cool set up. Coffee was great too. Could be a new hang out! Looks like would be great spot for few quiet drinks too.

I recently had my 30th birthday party at Poquito and it was the best location. It was ideal for a small group (I had 30 people), they had a totally reasonable minimum spend to have the whole place to ourselves and the platters were so yummy and classy. The whole staff went above and beyond to make it a really... More

My husband & I popped in on our way to dinner on Friday night, & as per usual we were warmly welcomed, had great quick service, & enjoyed one of the cocktail specials of the night (Daiquiri 👌🏾). Love the ambience too, we'll be back soon!

A great place to go and get a coffee during the day and fantastic cocktails in the evening. All the staff are friendly and welcoming, the bartenders definitely know what they are doing with the cocktails which are great! Highly recommend this place, doesn't look like much from the outside but once you get in there you will see what... More

Interesting breakfast menu. Loved the chorizo and potato and the coffee was also excellent as was the service. Would definitely go again if we are ever in Wellington.

Coffee is fantastic. Food was ok. Portion are a bit small for a brunch. The pulled pork sandwich wasn't actually containing pulled pork but roasted slice pork. Condiments were good, but again not enough. Staff is really kind and friendly. Small, cosy, warm little place.

I've been to Poquito for brunch, dinner, and drinks, and it's always unfailingly brilliant. Just go, I really doubt you'd ever think 'oh I wish I'd gone somewhere else'... I know I've never thought that if I've decided to go to Poquito. Just talking about it makes me want to go to Poquito. In fact I think I'm going to... More

Cafe by day, Cocktail and Tapas Bar by night. Serving the best coffee, brunch, tapas and late night cocktails all with the most love around town. Poquito means "a little bit". So Just like the name we are a little bit small, a little bit Spanish and a little bit amazing.
