We did not book ahead and due to simmer being fully booked on a Friday night sat outside in the icey cold winter frost and could have benefited from an outdoor heater. We ordered bread and chips as a starter and while the double cooked chips we’re crispy and tasty the garlic bread was soaky and bitter. The chicken was delicious and the calamari was tasty. The Thai beef salad was voted the best. The new menu is more of a bar menu and highly suited. If you would like a table book ahead.

This place is a pretty cool local cafe with lots of choices and the staff are great.
I would like to see a change in menu though, food has stayed the same since they opened with just the daily special changing.
Maybe some healthier options with less carbs, I asked if I could swap out the chips in my meal for something else and was told no... what a shame to be so inflexible....

Simmer is our local and so we are frequent and have never been unhappy. Great food and environment for single, couples or family.

We regularly visit Simmer Cafe for our "ladies lunch". As we live in various parts of Wellington Simmer Cafe is a great location for us We love that we can get parking close by and nearly always a table that sits six! A good range of cabinet food as well as order from the menu. I love the herb teas and cold drinks as well, but coffee seems to be a good starting place. Love the roast vegetable salad too! The only complaint I have is the corn fritters which being in the cabinet, then warmed up, are doughy and tasteless.
