Description: We are a family run cafe set just behind the old post office in Geraldine past the amazing galleries with local artists. A daytime cafe serving breakfast and lunch, our menu includes classics like Egg Benedict and fresh local Aoraki Salmon alongside the chefs daily creations on the blackboard and a great cabinet. Naturally we have gluten free, vegan and vegetarian options. The coffee is great! We have a cosy and warm atmosphere inside and a beautiful cottage garden outside, come and have a look and enjoy!

I recently did a return trip from Queenstown to Christchurch. On the way up to Christchurch, I stopped at Run77 Cafe in Tekapo. It was simply dreadful. Determined to find somewhere else, I stopped for petrol in Geraldine and the friendly lady at Z garage recommended Verde Cafe Deli. I was not disappointed. The food was delicate, sophisticated, tasty, good value for money. The food was quick and the service good. The restaurant has a lovely garden, and a play area for kids. Just off from the main road, so nice an quiet. One thing that could be improved - I went to the restroom out back of the kitchen - there were old smelly boxes and kitchen rubbish piled up outside there. That should be kept our of view.

As we had been before we headed straight back to Cafe Verde and once again what a pleasure it was. Fantastic choice of food really great staff and surroundings.as it was a little cool we sat inside but the garden is great if it's fine. Gentle sweet perfume from the roses etc. lovely to have a chance to return

Wow.. found this place by accident and so so glad we did. We ordered a savoury and a sweet scone with our coffees and they were both the best scones we've ever tasted and we eat a lot of scones! Love this place and recommend to anyone driving through Geraldine. Beautiful gardens, great spot for kids and nice strong coffees too.
