My local for lunch and coffee

Nice and handy to work. Great samosa's for lunch with or without a salad. The range of vegetarian foods for such a small cafe is good. The coffee is great as well. Staff are friendly. You need to be quick at lunchtime as it fills up quickly. Its also very popular on cruise ship days so you... read more

No matter what I order to eat here,it is ALWAYS delicious, tasty, healthy and a better version than I've ever had anywhere else! The selection is superb,the service is great, and the setting is charming. I don't even like chickpeas, but I'm now hooked on their chickpea salad, mmm mmm!

Always a good indication for the many TA readers, especially off the many cruise ships that visit Dunedin. A quick check on my tablet to read the many positive and recent reviews. Decision made to check the menu for breakfast !! A wide range of options but settled for the pancakes with yoghurt and Maple syrup. Great choice with prompt... More

While walking through Dunedin looking for a different vegetarian restaurant we came across Potpourri by accident. We (my husband and I) went to Potpourri on 9.4.15 for a late lunch. I had the mushroom burger and he had the falafel burger. Both came with salad in the burger and were served in a ciabatta type roll (? gluten free). My... More

A lovely cosy little vegetarian cafe. In a country where it can be difficult to find vegetarian food this was a good find. The meat eater of the pair was very satisfied with his breakfast. Good coffee and free range eggs always get a thumbs up.

If you're into looking after your Body, Pregnant, Vegetarian, Vegan, all that sort of thing then this is a must do for your Body, Spirit and Mind. Who said healthy can't be tasty as? I took my grandson there and he loved the food too.

There's very little choice for vegetarians in Dunedin so Pot Pourri has been a long time favourite. The food is good, the staff are pleasant and there is no booming music. Yay!
