We had lunch here and what a lovely selection they have. Great atmosphere, plenty of seating. I had baked potato with 3 toppings for $10. It was delicious. The coffee was fantastic-hot too, which is not often the case in many cafes. I hadn’t been...here in about 30 years and I’ll definitely be back much more regularly now!More

dropped in for lunch the afternoon Busy little cafe with a few regulars dropping in for coffee there are a good few vegetarian and vegan options with clearly laid out GF options too Really friendly welcoming staff The service is a little slower if you...are ordering fresh options . We had the falafel wrap , which was nice though himself doesnt like sweet chili which is on it but the falafel was really good and also had some tabbouleh in it also . I had a mix of their salads in a bowl with dressing nice and fresh with good few different options to fill me really recommend dropping inMore

This is a good spot to catch breakfast in the Octagon. This was the first time I've had a vegan cooked breakfast at a restaurant. It was pretty good. I'd visit again.

The food was really good, reasonably priced and the staff were really friendly. I would absolutely recommend this cafe even if you're not vegetarian or vegan!

Called in per chance on a wet day. Fairly busy and because it was after 1pm the salad choices were limited. Really enjoyed baked potato with chili beans, creamed corn, sour cream. My partner had falafels with salad - salad was depleted so only 2...choices, so it seemed a little light on.More

Good veggie and vegan food. My 80 yr old mother and I are both vegan and like to eat healthily as she’s had a stroke in the past. This can be difficult in NZ! But Dunedin did well with a bit of searching. Potpourri had...a good range of options and the vegan brekkie had wholemeal toast and homemade baked beans as well as the usual veggies. Lovely salads available (would be good to have a few more beans/nuts/or seeds in them) Main downside is it’s quite small, so arrive early or maybe ask to share a table with others.More

This cafe is apparently an institution in Dunedin and deservedly so. Very lovely food - not a huge menu but enough choices. Extra friendly staff welcoming us Aucklanders to their city. We were there for the Elton John concert and so had lively conversation with...the staff. We went back twice as it was so goodMore

Awesome selection of vege and vegan food! We got the pizza and vege lasagna which were both amazing. Went back and got the mushroom tart to takeaway which was also really good!
