From the moment you walk through the door this bustling gelato bar is just fabulous! Great service every time! You're able to taste flavours before purchases, dangerous! Just an ideal place for desert on the wander 😉

When we go for walk along the waterfront Kaffee Eis is always a stop for coffee or gelato depending upon the time of day. Overlooking the lagoon it is a great place to chill out and relax.

Kaffee Eis has, hands down, the best gelato in Wellington. We even go here in the middle of winter and it is always our first option for dessert if we are in town. The only issue I have is I can never decide which of the delicious flavours to choose! They need to do a 10 flavour option then I... More

If you're visiting Oriental Bay or the Paramount cinema then a visit to Kaffee Eis is de rigeur! Their selection of gelato changes all the time but the varieties are all delicious. There are also snacks and sandwiches if you've come hungry for more than ice cream. And there is nothing like an affogato with Amaretto gelato to fill a... More

We stop at Kaffee Eis for a gelato on a regular basis. The staff are incredibly friendly and always helpful. I am a terrible decision maker and the staff are always helpful when I ask them to recommend flavors, and always offer a taste test of a few flavors. The gelato is always delicious and there is an ever changing... More
