We came in for a quick lunch but lingered in the comfy atmosphere. Excellent buttermilk pancakes, crispy fries and a roast vege salad made for a lovely light lunch. Gorgeous views of the rail station from our seats, light music and the contented noise of a full-ish venue was not intrusive at all. Staff were lovely and quick service was appreciated, and decor is quirky without being jarring. Overall very satisfied, keen to return for a full meal.

I went there for brunch with my girlfriend on Sunday. The food was excellent and the service from the waitress Liz was very good. We would definitely go back.

This cafe/restaurant is one of the best in Dunedin serving both cafe style food as well as full dining.

We will often call in for brunch when we have visitors from out of town. With the Farmers Market across the road it makes for a great Saturday morning

A quality atmosphere backed up with stunning food and service. A very well thought out wine list and great range of craft beers and interesting whiskey.
