Cuba Street is worth visiting for its shops and cafes especially on a Friday night when there is a Street Market with live entertainment and Street Food on offer

A not so average shopping street. A mix of quirky stores and bars. Nice ambiance. Not too special, but also not to be missed when sending a day in Wellington.

Enjoyed a stroll and shopping along Cuba street . A chilled atmosphere and plenty to look at. Good cafes as well but at the top end of the street

Cool vibe. Lots of options for food and drinks in the area. My favourite part of Wellington. Short walk from most places.

Cuba is a great street, part sidewalk mall, in the heart of Wellington. Lots of shops and boutique restaurants and coffee shops. A great place to visit and find some unique souvenirs.

You must visit the Friday night food market on Cuba Street. There is an absolutely devine selection of foods from all over the world. It’s not a huge market but it has a great backstreet atmosphere and is really lively. Great bookshop in the middle...More

Lovely morning strolling down Cuba Street and popping into markets and shops. Yummy food and great people watching, plus some amazing shops. Definitely worth a visit if urban experiences are your thing.

My second time on Cuba (after 1996) I felt, it's seen its best days. Cuba Street is a street full of (alternative) shops and bars and cafes. Nice bookshop(s?).
