I don't know how many times I've been here - probably once every week or two for the last 4 years! This place is great. Best coffee. EVER. The cabinet food is really good - the ficelles, the salads, the chocolate chip cookies. Bacon buttie is awesome. Service fast and friendly. This place is ALWAYS packed and if you try it - you'll see why.

We stayed opposite in the Euro motel for two weeks following the earthquake in Christchurch, and breakfasted at the Good Oil daily and somtimes other meals also during the day. Without question this cafe sets the standards for others to aspire to. Superb freshly cooked breakfasts, and home made muesli, accompanied by really good coffee. My wife and I have toured throughout NZ and Australia for months at a time and found nothing to beat it.Friendly and relaxed staff who clearly enjoyed working there. When we return to Dundedin, this will be where we will eat breakfast! If you are considering a stay in Dunedin the Euro on opposite the Good Oil is great too. Both are central and ideal for exploring the city.

Had lunch here the first day of our two day stay in Dunedin and loved it so much we went back the next day. Recommended.

Cool and funky with amazing Sam Foley artwork on the walls. Coffee superb, and definitely try the savoury muffins.
