“Lovely spot for lunch!”
Reviewed February 24, 2013 via mobile

One of the joys of New Zealand is the existence of small, sweet cafes like Verde. We stopped in Geraldine to find my husband a new pair of sunglasses and asked the clerk for lunch recommendations. She suggested Verde, a short walk from the drugstore.
What a find! Delicious meal, sat in the shade outside! I had the mushroom, leek, and blue cheese tart and a ginger slice; both were absolutely excellent. Service was attentive, and we could not have asked for more!

Lovely setting and a great meal! It came highly recommended by several people and we were not disappointed. Note that they are not usually open for dinner.
