No list could be complete without the mention of Fidel’s Cafe on the famous Cuba Street. This cafe has been a firm favourite for years now, and there looks to be no sign of that changing. Its eclectic menu and decor has made it a favourite of uni students and young professionals, busy suits and relaxed retirees. If you want some properly tasty cabinet food made with love and some of the best ingredients to be found, then look no further. Also, the coffee is probably the best in the city, and that’s saying something in Wellington.
