This is a fantastic place to get delicious vegan food.
The coffee is great, and the staff are friendly, love it.

By far my favourite coffee shop in the city. Great thing is it’s close to the university Campus too! I always come here for my fix of Mocha + whipped cream and marshmallows and it’s always amazing!
Depends on which ones of the staff you get to serve you though, as one or two do seem cold and uninterested which is a shame as it’s such a lovely place!
Service is quick and the only thing that takes long is the line you’re in.
The bacon Bagels there look absolutely heavenly and their scones are quite tasty for those on a budget! In my opinion, they do the Mochaccino, hot chocolate and Mocha shakes very well in my opinion!
Try their chips when you have the chance also, they’re not your usual kind. You get them more chunky and cut into cubes here.
The one thing I wasn’t fond of was the vegan chocolate chip cookie, rather dry and not very tasty (couldn’t even taste the chocolate) but I guess I can’t judge until I become vegan myself, which will won’t be any time soon.

I’ve found the food has always been great and they have an especially good catering for Vegan eaters comparative to other diners in Wellington. Music used to be consistently awesome and was the second-to-main reason I went there, usually a lot of drum’n'bass and decent hiphop(not like the trashy stuff they play at goodluck these days), however last few times I’ve been they were playing weird depressing stuff which has discouraged me from going there as often, the food still is really good though.
Service varies like mad, sometimes awesome sometimes awkward and well off what should be expected normally, seems like it would be one of the most stressful places to work though with the pace they often take on food that is cooked to order is almost always there within good time.

Stopped by to catch up with a mate. Food was all very nicely displayed and tasted great. Didn’t actually order any drinks but my friend mentioned that his coffee was good. Would definitely consider going back for a place to catch up with a mate

I went this place for coffee as someone strongly recommended. The coffee was fine, but the staff was terrible. It was Sun 17th Feb at around 3.30-4ish.
Firstly, the staff who served me on the counter didn’t say anything to me when I was going to order, but facial expression was like ‘what do you want’. She was saying hi friendly to others (my observation of her attitude afterwards).
I ordered apple crumble cake for take away, when she cut the piece, the cake was crumbled so much that I have never taken such cake, but i didn’t ask for another piece. There was no offer for another piece or apology.
Another one that I ordered was ‘red capsicum filled with rice’. My daughter specifically told the ‘red’ one, but she picked the ‘green’ one. I asked her to change to red one and she made a face like we are making all other customers waiting as if we are a nuisance.
I thought she would give me a receipt or at least would ask me whether I want like in any other places. She simply went on to the next customer. So, I asked the receipt and got it.
The food presentation at the counter looked good and taste was fine, the coffee was not top, but fine.
The service – standoffish, cold and rude. I won’t go back.
- Loretta will be open 7 days, serving continually, as does our sister restaurant…
