If you are a foodie or a traveller that want a coffee this is the place to go in Twizel. We stopped in Twizel for petrol and randomly decided to check this place out. It was a very nice and sunny outdoor area with picnic tables and umbrellas. We has brunch so tried the eggs benedict and the omlet, both were delicious. Lovely place, will definitely stop by if we go that way again.

We loved this cafe! Such lovely staff, and a wonderful atmosphere. The cafe is decked out beautifully, and would be great to sit outside on a warm day. The food we ordered with our coffee was yummy, and would love to go back. What great coffee too!

Ate at Poppies cafe twice during our stay in Twizel. Very good food both times and a good choice of beverages. The local salmon is delicious and definitely worth a try either in the gourmet pizzas or in the salmon eggs benedict. Good coffee, too.

A very enjoyable meal at Poppies cafe. More of a restaurant than a cafe and good choices for an evening meal. Recommended.

Clearly the best restaurant in Twizel. Good food, good service. From the outside it looks like a cafe but it is a real restuarant.
