This is my HQ. Hanging with mates, late coffees due to late Bodega shows, first dates, break ups even - most of this happens here.
Always a place to sit, always a familiar friendly face behind the counter, a massive mug of black coffee without annoying 'we only have one size for a long black coffee' comments and all sorts of food for any occasion. I also quite like the quirky interior and heaps of stuff to read on premises. Love it!

By far the worst food and coffee I have EVER had. My partner and I went to Espressoholic for lunch today I ordered the nachos and an iced mocha my partner ordered fries and an iced mocha. The nachos were absolutely cremated the corn chips were black and the cheese was beyond burnt and had crusted all over the plate. Looked and tasted like they had been microwaved to a crisp. Completely inedible! My partners chips were mostly brown and tasted like they had been cooked in extremely dirty oil, again completely inedible. As for the iced mochas I have never tasked anything so putrid in all my life. There was a layer of coffee at the bottom and what just tasted like chocolate milk at the top, obviously wern't mixed at all. I don't think you should have to pay $6.50 for a drink you have to mix yourself with a straw! As for the Espressoholic staff their was an extremely off putting man who looked like he was going through some sort of midlife crisis judging by the way he was dressed dripping almost cup loads of sweat from his forehead all over the counter etc and he was the one bringing peoples meals out to the tables if he wasn't enough to put you off the food itself sure would!

Espressoholic is one of my fav Wellington cafes. The outdoor space is really appreciated (especially for a smoker) and good to see that despite the venue change, the attitudes and friendliness of the staff - along with the food/coffee, have all kept to a high standard.
Looking forward to many late nights at Espressoholic this year - save some cheesecake for me!
