Stopped at the Funky Duck with an out of town visitor. Service was prompt and staff very obliging with a dietary requirement. Would lunch here again.

Visited Whanganui on our travels, this was most definitely our favorite cafe. Staff were friendly, the food was delicious and the coffee was great. Would definitely recommend.
