Lunch at the Goose

As usual lunch didn't disappoint at the Goose. Salads and soups were the favorite on the day we visited followed by scones and muffins for the sweet toothed amongst us. Safe friendly and welcoming. Warmed us on a cold day.

Of all the restaurants I visited while in NZ, The Tin Goose is one of the few that I remember by name. 1 - Simply because the name is fantastic and 2 - because they had ready to eat sandwiches and ice cold drinks when we crawled in from a long morning in the great outdoors. I had an avocado... More

Good Food, Good Selection and Good Coffee. Their cheese rolls wer the best we had in our time down there. Overall a nice spot to stop to lunch or a snack. The only negative would be the length of time we had to wait for our food and coffees considering the cafe was only half full.

Great location and plenty for people with a carnivorous palate, sadly nothing available to suit vegetarians.

My partner and I called into the Tin Goose (TG) in Alexandra around New Year when most of the other cafes were closed for the holiday period. They were doing a roaring trade with customers sitting inside and outside, and the cafe offering a welcome respite and some shade from the scorching Central Otago sunshine and temperatures over 32 degrees...
