Have recently 'rediscoverd' Go Bang and it is fast being a favourite. Really like the wide range of options on the menu that are meat free, in fact it was so hard to pick one of them on my visit that I returned for brunch the following week to try another of the items. Both the vege breakfast (with a... More

We waited over an hour to be served pancakes and a potato stack and in the end asked for a refund. No large cups for coffees so had to wait 20mins for a coffee. Barista had friends come in and sit there talking to him for over an hour. Really poor service unfortunately and could see there was no management... More

Visited on ANZAC morning as nowhere to eat in wellington. Found on internet on way home and decided to stop and try. Coffee was good, service was good. Daughter absolutely loved the smoothie bowl. Porridge was excellent. Potato cakes were pretty bland for my liking but overall food was pretty good so all-round very good experience and would definitely return.

Stopped for lunch on a sunny week day. Didn't get off to a good start when the first 3 menu requests were unavailable. "Well just tell me what is available!" Ordered a lunch plate then coffee and cake. Cake with cream arrived first, then the coffee, then much later after quite a wait the food. Suppose we should have suggested... More

Enjoyed myself a quiet coffee and sweet treat here on a Friday afternoon. It was just what I needed and ideal time without the noise or crowds. Friendly service.

Great coffee and food; seats need improving. We stopped at go band for a lunch and found service to be very good and food tasty and well presented. Ive been here a few times and have never been diappointed. Our waitress wss good. My only suggestion is that they should change their "character" seats.

We've been here numerous times for brunch. Menu is pretty varied, and the coffee and selection of teas is very good. Priced very well, which is getting rarer and rarer.
