It's one thing to say you had a great coffee in Wellington, it's a whole different experience to say you had the BEST coffee in Wellington. I'll admit, it's a contentious subject, but even though Crumpet is really more of a bar than a coffee shop, I'd gleefully wait until 5pm for a coffee at this spot, and then pair it with a cocktail, of course. Decorationally speaking, it's a Belle Époque throwback, with honeycomb tile and cafe chairs, and classy drinks served in delicate coupe cocktail glasses. Oh, and jazz, of course.
