Another new place that I stumbled across in Wellington was a small coffee bar called August (down the road perpendicular to Floriditas). August, run by the cool cats who own Milk Crate, does takeaway coffee and sammies and small pieces of art.
Two things you might not know about August is that 1) the name comes from a creative and innovative Austrian, August Zang, who opened a bakery in Paris in the 19th Century and 2) the staff all wear barista aprons designed by Twenty Seven Names! Totally sorted.
In Wellington? Pop by!
