Lashings is the brainchild of British pastry chef Jackie Lee Morrison. We are a small batch, artisan dessert bar and café.
Having worked in 5* hotels and high-end restaurants all over London for years, Jackie saw moving to New Zealand as an opportunity to really start creating the food she wanted to feed people.
From our range of True Brownies (single-origin chocolate brownies, made from chocolate produced right here in Wellington), to delicious treats made to satisfy your sweet tooth and savoury goods to get your mouth watering, Lashings wants to #MakeYourBellyHappy.
Come and visit our Brownie Bar Café #LashingsHQ in Central Wellington to see what we're all about and let our team of brownie slingers look after you - we've created a beautiful relaxing space overlooking the hustle and bustle of town, and we've got something to suit everyone. We're dog friendly (and love meeting your puppers!) too, so no need to leave your furry mate outside.
In addition to our café, we stock our True Brownies around town, operate at Newtown Market and the Harbourside Market, and collaborate with various bars and restaurants all over Wellington. We're proud to be part of the hospitality industry in Wellington and were nominated for the 2019 Felix Awards Outstanding Cafe of the Year, Emerging FOH Team Member of the Year, and People's Choice. We have also been nominated for the 2020 NZ Food Awards Local Hero of the Year, and won the 2020 Felix Awards Restaurant Association Local Hero Resilience Award for our work setting up and running The Pandemic Pack in Wellington. Jackie was nominated for Outstanding Hospitality Professional of the Year in 2021.
We're proud to use some of the following local and artisan suppliers in our café and products:
Single-origin Dominican Republic 70% chocolate, produced in Wellington, NZ. Visit the Baron's sweet little store in Berhampore at 464 Adelaide Road, or find their truffles stocked all around NZ!
Wellington Chocolate Factory
Our neighbours in the Eva Street/Hannah's Laneway, Wellington Chocolate Factory create delicious single origin chocolate. Find them at 5 Eva Street (just up the laneway from Lashings HQ) to see the chocolate being made right there in front of you, or pick up a bar from most supermarkets around New Zealand.
Fix & Fogg
Artisan peanut butter made in Wellington, NZ. You can find Fix & Fogg at their Eva Street window in Wellington, around various supermarkets in New Zealand, and in selected stores in Australia, Asia and the USA.
Graeme's multi-award winning jams, chutneys and marmalades are the stuff of local legend, and taste all the better for being made fresh locally by a man who loves his craft.

She honed her craft all over London, notably at Claridge's Hotel, the Chiltern Firehouse & Galvin La Chapelle.
She now calls Wellington home, along with her husband and their two cats (Big Cat & Little Cat).
