Perched on the edge of Midland Park, at the heart of Wellington’s shopping and business districts, Astoria offers a blend of grand European café culture and the quintessential bustle of Wellington city life. A celebrated atmosphere is fuelled by the café’s contribution to the popular park, particularly when the sun graces us with its presence.On colder days, loyal clientèle enjoy the cosy expanse of our vintage interior. The menu is inspired by seasonal produce, paired with coffee roasted on-site.
