Brunch in the sun

Another leisurely brunch today, but finding somewhere in Wellington that was open on a public holiday proved to be a challenge. Never mind - fourth time lucky. We found Soi Café Bar in Evans Bay, which was not only open, but also didn't sting us with a 15% holiday surcharge.

Hidden behind the Evans Bay Marina where the old Greta Point Taven used to be, Soi has the most stunning view over Evans Bay. It's hard to find - you need to wind your way in amongst a few townhouses to get there, so look out for the little signs.

We were sitting right over the water by the floor to ceiling windows - definitely a location to wear sunnies inside. I think the morning is the best time to enjoy Soi's sunny views, but a clear evening would also be lovely. The brunch menu was great and prices reasonable. I've been here for dinner in a previous incarnation when the restaurant was called Eden, and must say that I prefer it as Soi. Well worth checking out.
