Catering to Wellington’s caffeine addiction, Havana Coffee provides top quality blends from around the globe. The cozy, retro café on Tory Street moves through to an open-air, garage-style roastery. Friendly service and a warm, stylish interior is Havana’s charm. Large windows frame the snug little sitting area; the floor is tiled and earthy. Everything else, the coffee machine, the duke box, fits into a gorgeously dated, turquoise theme.

There is a wonderful atmosphere, sitting with a view of the roastery, fashioned with earthy Cuban tones, large brown sacks of beans, hues of green and orange, cacti and other plants. It is beautifully laidback and rustic, much like it’s counterpart, the Havana Bar on Wigan Street.

Havana’s own invention, a fluid-bed hot-air roaster, makes great tasting coffee, and actually boosts the caffeine content! After ordering an extra buzzy coffee, make sure you take home a bag of freshly ground beans, selecting from an impressive range of origins and blends. Havana is an exciting find for the authentic coffee lover. If you’re serious about coffee, check it out. Seriously.

There are some free car parks outside, and you’re likely to find yourself parked up by the café owner’s stunning blue and white Buick!
