Wellington has become a real cafe society ... cafes at 10 metre centres throughout the city interspersed with hole in the wall mini cafes .. you don't have to walk far for a long black or a flat white. This is a serious business ... so serious that we must train our children in the art of the cafe .. so now we have Kafe Kindergarten ... YEAH RIGHT !!!
Actually this photo was taken in Astoria, the cafe on Midland Park where the skate boarders were photographed. They provide great food, snacks and most coffees and teas imaginable. A great place to sit in the sun and read the morning paper while sipping your first latte of the day... and as you can see it is children friendly !!
A Tourist Review "Astoria is a large European style cafe on Lambton Quay, in the heart of Wellington's CBD. Opening out onto Midland Park, Astoria is the perfect place to sit outside and enjoy the sun. Serving both menu and counter food throughout the day, Astoria is fully licensed and offers an extensive winelist as well as beer and spirits. Coffee is roasted daily on the premises and freshly roasted beans are available for purchase"
