My partner and I drove from Christchurch to Queenstown and had not done any research on places to stop along the way. We stumbled upon Poppies Cafe in Twizel. We were greeted right away, the service was prompt and friendly. We ordered the soup of the day (vegetable) and shared the portofino pizza and the pumpkin & bean burrito. The food was good and welcomed on the cold dreary evening.

We drove back through Twizel a few days later and liked Poppies so much we stopped for lunch! Highly recommended.

We we're only in Twizel the one nought and after having a beer at the local pub had a look around town for a place to have dinner. The lady at our motel suggested we might eat at Poppies, and I'm so glad we did. The service was good, the decor nice, the food very good. I had the yummiest pizza and my wife had a pork dish we roasted vegetables which she enjoyed. It may be a little more than the pub, but my goodness it was delicious.
