For 30 years Caffe L’affare, our flagship roastery and daytime eatery, has been our home – a sprawling, eclectic and bustling 145-seater café situated in the heart of Te Aro, Wellington.
When we aren’t in café mode, we’re busy hosting functions. If you’re keen to hire our space, get in touch with us.
