Cafe at the weekend. At this time of the day during the summer months the cafes tend to be rather empty ... however during the winter months, Wellingtonians still like to get out and about .. so they congregate in the warmth of a cafe for breakfast, lunch or dinner ... read the newspaper, catch up with friends or enjoy a welcome cup of coffee.
It is said that we have more restaurants, bars and cafes per head than New York with over 300 eateries. .. I suppose when you only have a population of 400,000+ you have a 'head' start ... if you know what I mean !!
