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!
