Cuisine: Breakfast, Brunch, Cafe

Escape the hustle and bustle of the city and soak up the relaxing ambience in Mulberry Garden Café’s courtyard. Once inside this inner-city café, you’ll feel a million miles away from the busyness of the CBD.

Grab a coffee and choose something from the cabinet or sit down and take your pick from the extensive breakfast menu. Think pancakes with streaky bacon and maple syrup, or the infamous Mulberry Big Breakfast. For lunch, try thai beef salad, open steak sammy with fries, pork cutlets with beans and mashed potatoes drizzled with apple sauce or seared salmon on corn fritters with wilted spinach and chipotle sauce. There’s plenty of gluten free and vegetarian options available too.

Cute, cosy and quiet, Mulberry Garden Café is ideal for a business lunch or a pre-work catch-up with a friend.

Decent food but shambolic service and organisation. Offered constructive feed back after our meal but this was totally dismissed and ignored

We had a fantastic meal there. Although we were with first table the place did seem very busy so there was a bit of a wait for food. It was worth it! Would highly recommend.

Restaurant looking a bit tired could do with a revamp so wasn't expecting much.
The food though was absolutely lovely with the exception of the pork belly being overdone.
My salmon was delicious and the chips perfect.
Coffee not hot enough, however with a few tweaks here and there I'd come back

My boyfriend and I thoroughly enjoyed our breakfast. The only reason I'm giving a 4 star rather than 5 is because we weren't provided with water the whole time, and the waffles were overdone/very dense. But other than that we had a great time and would recommend it to friends

Three of us had breakfast at the Mulberry Garden Cafe on Saturday morning, the meals were beautifully presented and tasted great, the coffee was good and we enjoyed the relaxed atmosphere and the great service too! We have been to this cafe several times and we’ll definitely be back!

We turned up a few minutes early and were offered the table in the front window. The waitress hadn't finished clearing it, there were used glasses and it smelt strongly of fish.
We ordered an orange juice and was told they might not have enough, do we want it mixed with another? We chose Apple. It's freshly made on site and was ok. We also ordered a bottle of water. After waiting an age, we went up to the counter and got 2 glasses of water, there were 4 of us. They weren't busy.
The meals we ordered were a gourmet burger (it was anything but gourmet with very basic ingredients), a breakfast special of poached eggs, bacon and hashbrowns, another of poached eggs on toast with a side of avocado (the poached eggs were well cooked), and on the waitresses recommendation, the falafel stuffed portobello mushrooms with tzatziki. The dish was dry and unappealing, the tzatziki had separated. The bottle of water we ordered was plonked on the table after our mains with no additional glasses supplied.
Overall, it was a very poor experience that left us with the feeling they didn't have pride in the service/product being offered or the physical premises itself which could do with a good tidy and clean.

Food was nice, especially the haloumi salad. My friend had some corn fritters but wasn’t impressed she found a piece of beef in one of them.

The exterior of The Mulberry Garden is unassuming but the menu is extensive and the food is nicely presented and very tasty. The outdoor dining area at the back is a bonus when the weather permits. We thoroughly enjoyed our lunch and will be back!

The food was tasty and served hot.
The problem was the service. We told them we had a first table booking and were told to choose any table. When I said "in the window seat ok" she said "oh... umm, it should be". Like, what? Are we going to have to move if a large group comes in?

So we eventually got her attention back again 15 minutes later and asked if we needed to go up to the counter to order, no, she came over.
We ordered the breakfast "special" as advertised on the blackboard outside. She didn't seem to know what that was.
We both ordered an extra side each and then a coffee.
She read the order back and we had to correct her on us both wanting a coffee.

The food came out and both sides we ordered we on the one plate. Hrrm strange, but we waited for our next plate to come out. Wondering why it was so hard for her to carry two plates at once. The reason? There was no 2nd plate of food.

I got her attention again and said "when is my plate of food likely to arrive?"
She looked at me confused. So I had to tell her we both wanted a breakfast EACH.
After hearing the chef argue with her about what she did or didn't submit as the order, she came back and said they had everything under control. Hrrmm yeah, I doubt I'm going to get exactly what I ordered as the side I wanted was on my husbands plate. (He didn't eat it just in case).

My food came and sure enough, just the breakfast special without the side. We transferred it from the other plate and I sat and ate my breakfast while my husband waited.

They offered another coffee as a sorry, but the first coffee wasn't great so we declined.

Still had to pay the full bill (less the 1st table discount) and got another apology for the inconvenience.It doesn't really matter to me that you're sorry, it was such an unusual way we were treated that we really could no figure out how they got it so wrong.

Won't be going back as there are so many other cafes to choose from in Wellington and most if not all get it right, this was just the strangest experience.
