Aro Cafe & Aro Coffee

Aro Café is noted as one of the best cafes Wellington has to offer. Just a few minutes drive from the city, we’re a bustling oasis of great food and our own house-roasted coffee, Aro Coffee. We are located in one of the city’s most colourful neighbourhoods, historical Aro Valley.

Nestled at 90 Aro St, Aro Café is open for business 7 days a week, and 4 nights for dinner, almost all year round. At Aro Café, we are renowned for both Aro Coffee as well as being a favourite brunch destination. Our menu has an interesting selection of seasonal brunch and lunch offerings, daily salads and takeaway pies and sandwiches. In the evenings from Wednesday to Saturday we are open for dinner with an Italian flair. Whilst we are not Italian, we love sharing our passion for Italian flavours both on the table and in the glass. We have a small, well-rounded wine menu including Italian wines and aperitifs along with craft beers that will tickle your taste buds.

At Aro Café, our philosophy is to serve seasonal, fresh, simple food sourced locally when possible. We use organic milk products and free range poultry. Almost everything is made from scratch and with care. This philosophy is also reflected in our coffee that is hand blended and roasted on site. The blend’s growing reputation draws coffee connoisseurs from far and wide so be quick as table space on the weekend fills up fast!
