“Cute cafe with an excellent menu of interesting, varied vegan & vegetarian plates. We came on a quiet Tuesday morning. The light and the plant-filled interior is a lovely spot to eat your way through their generously sized brunches. Great prices too given the portion, ingredient variety and quality and flavour. Look forward to being back.” –Shay Zhang

“Sweet Release is the best. The all-vegan options are so good. I got loaded fries with vegan ribs and pickles, and they’re amazeballs. 😋 The service is great, and the vegan food is some of the best in Wellington. Comfortable grandma chairs too, I almost fell asleep in them the other day. Highly recommended.” –Dan Ross
