Okay so coffee isn't strictly a dish but that's what Wellington is probably best known for.

The very best cafes roast and grind their own beans and Wellington breeds coffee connoisseurs like rabbits. At any one time there are more than 350 cafes in the city alone but for my money, the best cup of java is be found in the funky end of town, the Cuba Quarter. When you need a break from bowsing trendy boutiques and searching for vintage bargains with the cool kids, escape into Floriditas for a spot of old world glamour. High ceilings, European elegance and the yummiest cakes this side of the international date line. Give your tastebuds a treat with the Kiwi invention, the flat white — a shot of espresso with steamed milk. It'll make the coffee you've been drinking all your life taste like muddy water.
