Espressoholic, 136 Cuba St, Wellington. Formerly at 128 Courtney Place.


This longstanding Wellington icon originally opened on Willis Street in 1988 but moved two years later to Courtney Place. It was on the move again in 2009. The café is now located within the cultural hub of Wellington on Cuba Street.

The café's reputation and philosophy of 98% caffeine, 2% human has ensured the business's longevity. The quality coffee, music and service that this café is renowned for continues to impress its followers.
