#042: Maranui Cafe

This place burnt twice in my 6 years in Wellington… but yet it still gathered itself up and continues to be one of the most popular cafes along the seaside.

Not a cafe, you may think, but it has a comfortable atmosphere with cafe seating space, as well as cinema theatres.

Havana Coffee Works had made this bar next to itself, then relocated the coffee headquarters to Tory Street, leaving this place more space as a bar and restaurant.
