Great food and atmosphere in a cafe that is quintessentially Wellington!

Not over complicated food, just good honest tucker!

Vista cafe is the perfect cafe to go to on a hot day, right on Oriental Parade with views out onto the water, this is a must-do when in Wellington! Try the fresh fish or the breakfast menu, they really know how to keep you coming back for more!!

Great way to start the morning at Vista Cafe!

Outside tables that on a sunny day are the best spot in Wellington.

Love Vista in summer - I often come here after a day at the beach for lunch or a wine outside in the sun. Really friendly staff too!
