This place is special- the ambience is wonderfully eclectic and lush!
there was a lovely fire on a cold night; interesting decor and paintings.
The menu was small and perfectly formed. We had the miso salmon- best Ive ever had (and Ive eaten a lot of salmon around the world)- melt in the mouth and beautiful miso crust. We also had a penang curry- not sure what Malaysians would say, but we liked it. The dessert was also interesting- cherry and strawberry cake with roasted coconut shaving on a bed of warm summer fruit, with ginger and fig ice cream.
Service was impeccable. Would come back again- for sure.

Stopped for a coffee before our train tour, highly recommend and is a hop,skip and a jump from the station. Highly recommend as the ambiance is warm like the service and coffees

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.
