A go-to for swimmers, walkers and just about anyone cruising around Oriental Bay, Beach Babylon is where people go to refuel, perfectly positioned just a stone's throw away from the ocean.

Bringing upbeat retro vibes to Wellington's prettiest street, Beach Babylon is a colourful haven with plenty of comforting homemade food to match. They've got that indoor/outdoor dining style down to a tee with a streetside dining area and an indoor area that looks directly over the big blue. Bright with bold retro colours and patterns, tropical art and even a straw-fringed ceiling, this is the cafe equivalent of a vacation!

And have they got the dinner menu for you! Let's start things off with some popcorn buttermilk chicken, some vegan loaded fries or some cauliflower coated in a sticky sesame and soy dressing. These tasty plates are bound to get everyone around the table in a flash.

Then, move on to comforting favourites like the wagyu beef patty that is accompanied by crispy bacon, cheddar cheese, bourbon BBQ sauce and heaps of aioli. Otherwise, you can tuck into some crispy-skinned pork belly with seasonal greens and potato mash, fillet steak with a decadent truffle mac n' cheese or a vegan eggplant involtini with vegan mozzarella, chive pesto and arrabbiata sauce. And let's not forget pudding! With the likes of salted caramel and Snickers bar fondue on the menu, this is not something you want to miss!
