“Fabulous cafe inside wonderful organic shop”
Review of Taste Nature

I happened to be passing while walking around the city - and was most fortunate because I'm unfamiliar with the city and went passed many other places that did not seem inspiring and happened upon this place. The organic shop had all the usual lovely things one would expect. It was well stocked with fresh as well as other produce and items. The cafe inside the shop was a real find. A lovely range of food and drink with nice touches, like old style quaint crockery, and vases of garden picked fresh flowers which you could also smell. Lovely friendly staff too. I also noticed a nice area for children to play inside within the main shop. Highly recommended and worth going out of your way to go to.

Funky place.
I like that I chose the tea cup and teapot that best suited how I was feeling at the time. I love the pay on the way out model and enjoyed a lovely afternoon tea with the sun streaming in on an otherwise cold Dunedin day. Peanut slice to die for.

Seasonal, local, organic, fresh, nutritious. All the most important aspects of a food experience, taste nature delivers on all of these and some. Friendly and knowledgeable staff and a beautiful store.

If you care about your health and looking after the environment then don't look further than this fantastic Dunedin lunchtime restaurant. The eatery is adjacent to the wonderful organic store and has an ever changing menu based on what is currently fresh and in season. The service staff are obviously all very passionate about the underlying philosophy of fresh, local, organic produce and this is reflected in their friendly and helpful attitude towards their customers. Great value for money and food that's great for the soul - Can't wait to eat here again!

We were visiting son in Dunedin and looked up Taste Nature online hoping for an interesting healthy lunch rather than the usual pub grub. It took some finding as it is on a one way street and we had to pull over and open Google maps for direction as we had driven around past the exit end of High Street without realising.

Once Google guided us in to the correct direction of High Street we found a park easily and a coin for the pay parking. We had to park close by as one of our party could not walk too far.
We walked in through the crowded and interesting looking shop ( crowded with items, not customers ) and got to the cafe part where there was no-one on the counter and 2 people sitting at a table not eating. After looking around a bit saw a small sign that said Kitchen wasn't open but there was cabinet food available. I could see a few muffins and pies in cabinet but no-one to even ask so gave up and left. Annoyed as this was Sunday lunchtime and we made an effort to get there and wanted to try their food as if did look interesting.
