Got there just as the scones (shaped like a mini date loaf) were coming out of the oven...out of this world. So I'd definitely recommend this cafe. Can sit indoosr with clear blinds or outdoors and if you are lucky watch... More

Lucky enough to get a table without a booking mid Sunday morning. Would suggest booking a table in advance as this place is very popular! We sat outside right on the bay and it was stunning. Service was so quick - there was six of us and we were all surprised at the speed our meals came out! Sooo yummy... More

This place has a nice view, and a choice of outdoor, indoor, and semi-outdoor spaces to suit any weather. The food is tasty, with decent portions, and creative use of fresh ingredients.

Don't forget to read the menu carefully, its very amusing. The food was good and the staff and cat were friendly, pity about the weather when we visited. The location by the beach must make it an ideal spot to sit and eat outside in good weather.

Ate at Scorch-O-Rama twice whilst in Wellington. Once on a Lord of the Rings day tour (delicious fish and chips) and then again for brunch with a friend (outstanding french toast). Service was friendly and quick, food reasonably priced, and many dishes very delicious. They are open every day except Christmas day, and you definitely need to book ahead most... More

The multigrain toast, with red pepper hummus and avocado is not to be missed. Was perfect with a cup of tea and filling for the remainder of the day. The cafe walls are covered in comic book artwork and has a warm, friendly and relaxed feel. On nice days there is an option for nice outdoor seating with a lovely... More

Have had breakfast here on more than a few occasions and it always delivers. Good eats at decent prices, with a nice drive around the bay to get there. Always a winner, when friends are in town.
