“Delightful venue”
Reviewed 3 April 2014

I thoroughly enjoyed lunch here of baked potato (albeit that it was still a little crunchy in the middle) topped with spicy beans, salsa, cheese and a salad selection. The freshly prepared smoothies were both sublime too.
A great place at which to take a break from sightseeing in Dunedin.

“Great food, fair prices!”
Reviewed 3 April 2014 via mobile

I was excited to find this cafe on Trip Advisor, as I was passing through Dunedin & wanted a place to stop for lunch. As it turned out, I arrived about 10:30, so I had eggs on toast & coffee, and took a savory scone to go for later. Everything was delicious and I couldn't believe how reasonably priced it was compared to similar cafes in NZ. A great find!

“You don't need to be a vegetarian to enjoy eating here”
Reviewed 18 March 2014

We found this place almost by accident while looking for somewhere to have breakfast, and Potpourri seems to open a little earlier than other places. The coffee is first class, the food freshly prepared and delicious, the staff friendly and welcoming. In fact we liked it so much we ate there on our second, and last day in Dunedin. I'm someone who very much enjoys meat, especially bacon for breakfast, but I honestly didn't miss it here.
And judging by the food that was being prepared for taking away it would be a good choice any time of the day, some delicious looking rolls, wraps, cakes and muffins.

“Coffee and cake”
Reviewed 2 March 2014 via mobile

Great coffee. Friendly atmosphere. I wish we had come here for lunch as it looked tasty and the staff seem to be enthusiastic about the food. Good cakes.

“What an oasis!”
Reviewed 17 February 2014

After 18 days in NZ it is clear that this is very much a carnivore country, not very sensitive or friendly towards vegetarians. Dunedin came as a pleasant surprise. Here one is actually spoilt for choice! Potpurri is actually one of many options. This one is bang in the Center, very friendly and warm, lots of interesting choices for food and drinks and nice seating. The only drawback was there is no wifi, but that is par the course for NZ!
