Nikau Cafe - Wellington

Located in Wellington's Civic Square -next to the ... Art Gallery is the Nikau Cafe. It's a great place - for a cultural treat.

First eat a sumptuous lunch - then walk through the Gallery and appreciate the art!

Nikau food - is first rate - fresh delicious - though generally the servings are tending towards low tide - if you know what I mean.

What I really like about Nikau - is how it weaves New Zealand produce into classic Cafe dishes.

I am quite a fan of the kedgeree.
