The food was average. My salad was covered in dressing. You couldn't even taste the salad. My Dad's burger was tasteless. Tiny space and it was crammed. Slow service.

I'm surprised there aren't more reviews about this cafe. Excellent friendly service, nice simple menu, and the food was cooked perfectly. And I love the decor with the old 1940's news papers on the wall. This cafe was recommended to me, and I'll be recommending it to everyone else. A real gem of a cafe!

I had breakfast here one of my days in Dunedin. The food was well prepared, the portions large, and the prices reasonable. I was not disappointed and would recommend it to others.

The iconic governors cafe has had lots of ups and downs in the last 30 years. Unfortunately its in a down one at the moment: average food, not such great coffee, since new owners have taen over in the last 6 months. Previously the managers had run a good coffee roastery, and had some intereting ideas for food, but no longer. Cheap though.
