Located in the heart of Wellington's stunning Botanic Garden, you'll find us serving up hearty breakfasts and delicious lunches seven days a week.

Peppered with updated classic cafe favourites, our menu uses fresh, local ingredients wherever possible. Keep a look out for our specials, which change weekly, and our carefully selected wine list.

Our friendly staff, relaxed environment and the ever-changing beauty of the gardens make Picnic Cafe a unique and wonderful place to visit - whether you're popping in for a take-away coffee or joining us for a scrumptious meal.

We look forward to seeing you soon.
