A lovely selection of the sort of veggie offerings that you'd expect to see at a veggie cafe. Not mind-blowing or fine dining, but tasty and friendly.

I was looking for a good, but not heavy, lunch and this place was perfect. I was there at the beginning of lunch time and the cafe felt very relaxed. I had a, large, perfectly cooked baked potato with a selection of fresh fillings, which was very good value. If I'm in Dunedin again I look forward to going back.

We ordered a baked potato plus a salad. The staff seemed over worked or inexperienced. Our meals were placed on the wrong table and the diners had to hand them over to us. The food was ok but nothing special. Hope they improve.

We were initially just looking for a coffee shop but once we got inside and saw the menu, we decided we had to stay for lunch too. Lots of delicious choices, in very nice surroundings with laid back, friendly staff. I had the mushroom burger, my sister had the falafel, salad and hummus and we shared a date scone. All... More

Normally a carnivore but love this place - eat there often when I am in town. The meals here are great if you just want a light snack or something more substantial.

Very nice place to rest while visiting Dunedin and have lovely cappucino. Watch people passing by on the street, read a bit in a daily newspaper, treat yourself with warm brownies with yoghurt, just perfect! I didn't have linch there, but all the vegetarian dishes looked very tasty and fresh.

We were in Dunedin for a day and being vegetarian took the opportunity to visit Potpourri. So nice to be able to order anything from the menu. I had eggs benedict, my son had the falafel burger and my daughter had waffles. So good that my son spent the following days plotting how we could go through Dunedin to our... More

Best coffee in town bar a long shot. Great service and very friendly staff. Back for sure. Only down side is small service area and can get crowded

If you are looking for delicious, healthy food in a cosy, friendly atmosphere, you don't need to look further than Potpourri Vegetarian Cafe. We ate the pizza and lasagna with salad. Both were really tasty, fresh, and healthy. We also had the gluten-free date scone and the birdseed slice. Yum!!! The staff are delightfully friendly, the range of food is... More
