After spending all of Wellington on a Plate eating burgers or reading about burgers, I was excited to get out this week for a normal cafe lunch.
REVIEW: And that is exactly what I found at Cafe on Plimmer.
Located on the top floor of the AMI Plaza near Plimmer steps this small cafe opened in July, and has a good range of cabinet food, all-day breakfast (until 2pm) and a tasty lunch menu.
From the numbers of customers who popped in and out of the place while we were there, it definitely seemed as though the cafe had become popular in its short lifespan.
For lunch we had the Thai fish cakes and the vegetarian nachos.
The fish cakes were a good size and served with a lovely salad of mesculan leaves, carrot, red capsicum and a dressing.
My dining companion pronounced them tasty and said they had a good kick from the spices. However, she said they were a bit salty.
The nachos were very impressive. Served in a bowl with a large pile of corn chips, these vegetarian nachos actually had what the title said they should, vegetables.
Unlike normal vegetarian nachos, which generally come with a slop of beans, this dish also had broccoli, mushrooms and onions.
We were tempted by the caramel slice and the ginger crunch in the cabinet, but couldn't fit them in. Don't worry. I will be going back.
The cafe also has a neat aroma tray by the till. On it are little jars of coffee beans and teas.
If you have always wanted to try a new tea, but not sure which one, this might be the place to be a bit daring.
All up lunch for two with drinks was $40.40.
