This small cafe is situated centrally in Gore. Coffee, cakes and food are all good and the place has "atmosphere". A nice little place to take your wife or friends and mingle with the locals.

Food at the Green Room is always good but the staff always seem to be so grumpy - would it be that hard to smile and say hello? We understand you’re busy at lunchtimes but we’ll be going somewhere where we’re at least spoken to...More

This is a really nice little cafe with a fair bit of character. It's mainly a coffee shop with a small food selection but it's all delicious. Whatever you order, be sure to get one of their delicious salads on the side!

The green Room, located beside Gore's own movie theatre, is a hidden gem. Offering good coffee and a wonderful selection of food, it is a great place to stop and take a break. Cabinet food is extensive and there are plenty of options.

It's a relatively small cafe but has an inviting, relaxed atmosphere. It was great for my friend with her young baby. She could enjoy her coffee and cake without feeling uncomfortable as is the case with young children in some establishments. Would definitely come here...More

Had been to this cafe for coffee before and it had been OK. No sure what had changed but they delivered the best coffee we had better than a number of good cafes in Dunedin on this trip.

Plenty of choice. Food served promptly with very attractive presentation. Very handy for the cinema, which is part of the same block.
