Great service and friendly staff with prompt service. The coffee was good but limited cabinet food at lunch time.

Gotham is a brilliant café in the Middle of Wellington which I frequent a lot for business meetings as well as personal dining / coffee. It is my 'go to' cafe in Wellington CBD. Staff, food and coffee are always consistently good. Highly recommend it.

Swung in for a quick breakfast and got exactly what I was looking for. Swift service and the food was fast but good. Not overly fancy which was ok, it was exactly what I ordered, nothing more nothing less. Would happily walk back in tomorrow for much of the same

You just can't fault Gotham. Great service, food is fantastic. I had the BLT, the missus had an omelette. Large portions, awesome flavour. The Hot Chocolates are some of the best you'll find in NZ.

It's been a while since this was my regular spot for coffee. The coffee is still really good and my panini was good if not spectacular. Most of the reviews mention the friendly staff and certainly the staff on the till were very nice. However, even though it was only moderately busy, first my coffee, and then the panini were...
