Pipitea cafe is now closed. Pipitea bookshop closes Friday 22 July. We are holding a closing down sale until the last day. We thank you for your support.

Vic Books Pipitea is our handy downtown location, next to the hustle and bustle of Central Wellington Railway Station, the Law School and the Beehive. Pop in for some reading recommendations from our friendly team or browse our superbly curated selection of politics & economics, art & cooking, new novels and the best in children's books. In our café, Colin McCahon's monumental Gate III artwork is the perfect spot for reading, eating, work meetings or eavesdropping on a politician or two!

During the day, we're serving up lunchtime toasties and the best Coffee Supreme brews and at night, attend one of our regular bookshop events. Vic Books Pipitea is a cosy and intimate space for a book launch, literary celebration and a friendly neighbourhood spot for time out from your weekly routine.
