Dishing it Out x Prefab, Wellington

On Te Aro Street sits a big, square, warehouse style café and event space, dubbed Prefab. Known for their lunches and their internal crockery brand Acme, you’ll probably spot more man-buns than families considering the population of Wellington.

As you walk in, you’re greeted with a smile into a delicate, mostly light, wooden interior. Aeroplane propeller ceiling fans swoop cold air over the stone floors, leaners and tables. As you take a seat, they’ll take your drinks order and place the docket in a tin placed square center of the table – a unique way of tracking your orders. Sassy service meant for an abrupt experience, which was refreshing. There’s no pretense, and the décor promises just that.

The food is quirky. Offerings range across your usual hearty favourites; there’s well-decent pasta, fish, and sandwich specials. Take your pick between a la carte menu or baked goods. Powered by Flight Coffee and a healthy dose of kiwi favourites like pies, reubens, and risottos, there wasn’t much to fault the feed we had.

It's nice and chilled. You’re not rushed. Take your time, as smooth service keeps you at ease and the staff aren’t afraid to bring a bit of banter to your lunch. Good vibes, better food, and even better coffee. Hit them up.
