Eat here on a regular basis, young lady who serves at counter is always positive and inviting. Chef out back has recently changed I think as not seen in last 4 visits? Food / service is quick with little delay. My preferences include the Pho or large breakfast grabbing a couple of sausage rolls on the way out, prices are reasonable. Easy access for disabled, toilets on site, parking on street. Forgot they also make a nice coffee.
A mix of traditional fare such as eggs on toast etc with amazing Vietnamese food. Both parts of the menu are prepared with equal care, and equal generosity - portions are big. The Vietnamese food is as good as I've had anywhere (so are the breakfasts) and there's a wide range of cabinet food, including hot items such as macaroni cheese and pies. Something for everyone, with unfailing cheerful and polite service. It's a regular haunt for me, highly recommended.
Lovely breakfast, great value for money
They make a good pot of tea, hard to get these days.
This was my go-to Pie Spot in petone during my lunch breaks for the half year I worked there. I sampled pies from 6 cafes on Jackson Street, Hands down the best tucker for a quick lunch from here.
Hestia Cafe is my wife and I's favourite place to eat. There's a huge variety of food but you are honestly missing out if you don't try their Vietnamese menu which is probably the best Vietnamese food in Wellington (especially when the usual chef is on duty). We especially recommend the Bún bò Huế!
