Customs Brew Bar

Wellington is spoilt for choice when it comes to excellent coffee options. One of the best spots in town for a quality brew is Customs.

Proving that simple is often best, the coffee menu is short. Choose between espresso or filter, and hot or cold. It’s got the usual suspects of alt milks, and the beans are from Coffee Supreme, who owns the café.

Part of the appeal of Customs is its al fresco seating. Park up on a stool in the middle of Ghuznee Street for excellent people (and dog) watching. You might find you can sip the day away with an iced latte in hand (locals love them with Customs’ ‘naughty’ milk, adding a dash of sweetness).

If you need something more than caffeine to keep you going, Customs have that sorted, too. Its toast and sandwich options are just as delicious as its coffee. Baking the bread is Wellington Sourdough, and toppings change seasonally.

Customs’ interior wood panelling and mid-century furniture exude casual cool. Open shelving displays Supreme-branded coffee cups, takeaway beans, and brewing equipment — the perfect way to take your newfound love of coffee home with you.
