Description: We are the foremost information centre on the Otago Peninsula and are open for breakfast lunch and afternoon tea. Or you could pick up one of our picnic bags and take it on one of our self guided walks. We make all our own cakes and pies as well as our own delicious ice-cream. We have great coffee and 17 varieties of tea as well as milkshakes and smoothies and the best harbour side views of any cafe in Dunedin.

We ate breakfast here and sat outside overlooking the harbour. Great food and beautiful position. Everyone was very friendly.

Good fare in a slightly rustic and worn environment. The team running it really care that people enjoy their visit to Otago peninsula; they are happy fielding questions, and there is much information on display and available to consult while enjoying your refreshment.

A delightful cafe offering home cooked food and yummy home made cakes. The couple who own it were so friendly and gave us lots of ideas of things to do in the area. Really recommend the New Zealand Breakfast and Eggs Benedict if you are there for breakfast. A very welcome stop if you visit Dunedin.

After day of touring and hiking, it was fine place to rest and have some ginger veggie soup, very good. The turkey cranberry panini was thin on turkey, thick on bread. We will go back to try other things while on the Otago Peninsula.

Nice food at a good price, loved that the pancakes are cut into penguin shapes. Friendly service, relaxed atmosphere.
