Decor and atmosphere: 8.5/10 cool wall features and amazing view Service: 4.0/10 made a big deal out of our sides orders Coffee: 4.0/10 Over extracted, mocca or hot chocolate? Food: 8.0/10 generous volumes, heavy handed with the seasoning and cream cheese Price: 4.0/flat white Music: very quiet jazz Final call: lacklustre coffee brilliant spot, good prices

Great Wellington institution. Always good coffee and food. Service could be better. Get in early to avoid waiting on the stairs. Best cafe atmosphere and views in Wellington.

Ah, beloved Maranui, with the best view - over the surf, and surfers, of Lyall Bay - as well as knock-out brunches, and decent coffee. It was here where Mr Fig was converted to coffee, by dint of a proper New Zealand flat white, without a trace of bitterness or scalded milk, unlike his northern-hemisphere experiences. It's sometimes served a little too hot though, and on occasion I've found it slightly under-extracted. The microfoam can also get a bit thick and over-fluffed. So the coffee's not the best in town, but you'll forgive them that, as they're friendly (in a highly efficient way), the food is fortifyingly delicious, and the view is wonderful, sunny or stormy (especially stormy!)

If you're in Wellington, you simply must come here. The coffee is fine, though this place is more about the food and the view. Service can be a bit lacking but thats really because the place is rarely never absolutely packed. On weekends you'll have to wait for a seat, but I assure you the wait is worth it.

Quite a cool cafe on the beach with stunning views from the bay windows. Had eggs benedict with a couple of flat whites. Waited quite a while for our food but it was nice when it came. Coffee wasn't too bad, but nothing to really shout about. Obviously a popular spot because they're slam busy.

Maranui is really busy for good reason (get there early or be prepared to wait). Their big breakfast is easily the best in Wgtn. Coffee is ok (Havana). Location is obviously a winner. Service is very friendly and staff handle the busyness very well. Nice
