“Excellent coffee and cake”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 2, 2014

Nectar is my favourite cafe in Dunedin. The coffee is always good and the cakes and slices from the cabinet are great. Also a great place for a meal.

“Great for breakfast”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 5, 2014

The coffee here early in the morning was great and the breakfast enjoyable. Beats a hotel breakfast and cheaper too.

“Great atmosphere. Great food.”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 17, 2013

I liked the quirky industrial decor. The upstairs tables offer a choice between 'box seat' at the front and private corner at the back. It was too cold to try the outside seating upstairs but again it had interesting architectural structure surrounds.
The menu was limited but still offered a good range. The lamb tagine with spiced chick peas was delicious. This will make my next visit problematic: should I try one of the other interesting choices or repeat the tagine I know to be great?
