Just popped in for something for supper as we were staying next door at the southern cross hotel. The cheese cake was very nice, so went in for breakfast the next morning. We both had bacon & eggs and what a huge meal for $10. Staff were polite and pleasant. Will go back next time I'm back in Dunedin.

If your wanting a meal in a uffin then stop in at the Black Dog for one of their savoury muffins. Had one last week and it was fantastic, fully of all the good things that should be in a savoury, good size, really moist and just overall yummy. That was breakfast right there.

I travel to Dunedin regularly and this is one of my 'regular' stops to take customers for morning or afternoon tea and 16th March 2015 was one such morning. The coffee is always of good quality, the blueberry muffins are a delight, even though I shouldn't be eating them. Nice interior with comfortable sofas and chairs round things off nicely.... More

I recommend this place to all. Amazing people, very friendly and approachable. I love the seafood chowder and the cheesecakes! Also, people in Dunedin are awesome! Worth a visit or many.

My husband and I stopped in last night for a quick bite, after our friends raved about the meal they just had. We split the seafood wrapped in phyllo dish. It came with a side salad and was soooo good. Lots of fish and shrimp in a nice white sauce. Yum!
