Could this be the world’s tastiest laneway?

Tucked away in a little laneway in central Wellington (between Leeds and Eva Streets), you’ll discover a trail of boutique factories and eateries each with delectable goodies to try and buy.

Six Barrel Soda

At the beginning of the lane where it intersects with Dixon Street, you'll find Wellington soda darling Six Barrel Soda Co. Made the old-fashioned way with all natural ingredients, their range of bottled sodas and syrups are available in unique flavours including blueberry and fennel, celery tonic, and feijoa. Found up a short flight of stairs, Six Barrel also serve snacks and meals with a great view for people-watching.

Wellington Chocolate Factory

Wellington Chocolate Factory’s products are made lovingly and intentionally, and should be savoured in the same way. With a commitment to ethical trade and bean-to-bar transparency, New Zealand's first bean-to-bar factory open to the public crafts perfect morsels that come beautifully presented in wrappers designed by local artists. Be sure to try their most popular bar, salted brittle caramel.

Golding's Free Dive

This zany little craft beer bar, tucked in the middle of the laneway, is decorated largely from recycled materials, with plastic buckets for lampshades and awnings made from old skis. Golding's Free Dive is a free house, meaning they can put anything they like on tap with no obligations to big breweries. With just six taps and one hand-pull, beers are swapped out often so breweries from all over New Zealand can get their turn. Patrons can also order pizza from nearby Pizza Pomodoro and have it delivered to their table while they drink. 

Leeds St Bakery

When brothers Jesse and Shep of Ti Kouka Café fame announced they were opening a new bakery, fans of their famous salted caramel cookies were thrilled. With a wealth of experience in the industry behind them, the brothers have helped transform Hannahs Laneway into a culinary hub with their fresh breads, pastries, sandwiches and of course those salted caramel delights. There are also a variety of gluten free options on the menu.

Red Rabbit Coffee Co.

Sharing a site with Leeds Street Bakery, you’ll find Red Rabbit Coffee Co. While enjoying some freshly-baked pastries by the Leeds Street crew, sip Hopper espresso, aeropress, V60 or Chemex brews and savour the complex flavours that speak to their single-origin production. 

Pizza Pomodoro

One of the originals in the laneway, family-run Pizza Pomodoro has been producing authentic Italian pizzas in Leeds St for over a decade. A savvy collaboration with neighbouring Golding's means you can order and eat their pizzas from the comfort of your bar stool.

Fix and Fogg

As you stroll down the laneway, take a peek into the tiny ‘nut buttery’ where the team behind Fix and Fogg produce their delicious products. Fix and Fogg’s boutique, small-batch produced peanut butter is made right in the heart of Leeds Street and sold from the factory window. Their range consists of four flavours: Smooth, Crunchy, Smoke and Fire, and the decadent and very moreish Dark Chocolate peanut butter. 

Hanging Ditch

A new edition to the Leed Street community, Hanging Ditch brings to the table curious cocktail creations, delightful décor and... liquor hanging from the ceiling! Make sure to try 'The Cabin in the Woods', a Hanging Ditch signature: rum, lime, pistachio orgeat and lime is all you need to know.
