I went here for brunch after a morning tour which brought us back to the MacKenzie Country Inn that is located right opposite the cafe. It was a one-minute walk across the road to get to the cafe, so it would be very easy for those staying at the Inn. Besides that, the cafe is located right at the main junction where cars turn in to get to Twizel town, so it is very hard to miss and also a great stop on the way out of the town.

Since it was a lovely sunny day, we sat outside at the really pretty garden. It had a nice ambience for brunch on a sunny day like that. There were quite a number of customers that day but there were no seating problems. We shared the fish & chips, which was delicious. We also tried the savoury scone and that was really good as well. The relatively small brunch (since we were sharing the main) managed to sustain us till we reached Mount Cook later to have a late, heavier lunch.

Also, the staff were friendly and helpful. Overall very satisfied with this cafe and it deserves the number one spot on Tripadvisor!

If you are a foodie or a traveller that want a coffee this is the place to go in Twizel. We stopped in Twizel for petrol and randomly decided to check this place out. It was a very nice and sunny outdoor area with picnic tables and umbrellas. We has brunch so tried the eggs benedict and the omlet, both were delicious. Lovely place, will definitely stop by if we go that way again.

We loved this cafe! Such lovely staff, and a wonderful atmosphere. The cafe is decked out beautifully, and would be great to sit outside on a warm day. The food we ordered with our coffee was yummy, and would love to go back. What great coffee too!

Ate at Poppies cafe twice during our stay in Twizel. Very good food both times and a good choice of beverages. The local salmon is delicious and definitely worth a try either in the gourmet pizzas or in the salmon eggs benedict. Good coffee, too.

A very enjoyable meal at Poppies cafe. More of a restaurant than a cafe and good choices for an evening meal. Recommended.
