  • A nice browse, but really not very much to buy. Public facilities esp loos sorely lacking. The Aroma Cafe served great and affordable food. Try out the carbonara!  more »
  • Cuba Street has it all: diversity of people, fashion, food, art, music and thought. Everyone just getting on with their lives. If only the world was a big extension of Cuba St, we'd all be fine. :o)  more »
  • The hustle and bustle of Wellington can be found right here. Visited a lot of eateries on Cuba St but we loved was the second hand shops!  more »
