“You have to try it!!!”
Reviewed November 18, 2012

Set in a relaxed off-street cottage surrounded by a beautiful garden, Verde is a perfect place to enjoy simple foods that taste exquisite! This has to be my favourite cafe in NZ...

There was something magical having coffee and tea in such idyllic garden, surrounded by beautiful spring blooms. The birds were singing and the air is filled with children's laughter as they played on the swings and slides.

My coffee-addict husband gave the coffee here a thumbs-up, and I thoroughly enjoyed my brownie and cinnamon toasts.

Highly recommended. Don't miss out this gem when driving between Christchurch and Lake Tekapo!

“The photo is not the cafe..”
Reviewed November 6, 2012

Housed in an old, relocated, shop, Verde is tucked in behind the old Post Office with a lovely rose and herb garden and both indoor and outdoor seating. They have a great menu of cafe food, including gluten free, friendly staff and wonderful coffee.
