“Excellent!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 28, 2013

We went here for a late breakfast recently while on a trip to Dunedin with a party of five. The food was very good and prices are reasonable. Service was excellent, and coffee first class. I can see why my son likes it so much!

“A very slick operation!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 26, 2013

We arrived at this cafe on a busy Sunday morning and nothing was a problem. A table for 9 was quickly assembled and the coffees and food arrived in a friendly manner.
Tasty and fresh food.

“Hard to choose”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 19, 2013

Recently went here for lunch while staying overnight in Dunedin. The cafe was very crowded with a long line of people waiting to order. I thought we were going to be waiting for ages but not at all. The array of cabinet food looked so good it was hard to choose. I ended going for the tomato, fennel and leek soup which was delicious. My friend had the omelette which was also very tasty. Despite being incredibly busy the staff were very friendly. I look forward to returning to try the chicken salad!
