My Dunedin Itinerary

Coffee & Tea

Coffee and tea lovers are ridiculously well catered for in Dunedin. We've randomly plucked five of the best to showcase, visit http://www.insidersdunedin.co.nz/culinary-insider or www.tripadvisor.co.nz for more.

Starfish Café & Bar

Is St Clair the most photogenic beach in New Zealand? Fresh, local, and by the sea, Starfish Café is a perfect fit for its stunning surrounds, with a delish and rather unique menu (coconut turmeric late anyone?), freshly roasted L'affare coffee, local Emerson beers and a fantastic selection of wines. Oh, and they were the regional  winner in the 2017 Cafe of the Year Awards.

The Esplanade, St Clair

The Perc

If you’re looking for baking like your grandmother used to do, The Perc Cafe is your go-to destination. Choco-caramel, Tan slice and banana bread are the true standouts, although many would argue that the real highlight of the menu is the bagels. There's always a range of gluten-free and vegan items, the delicious All Press coffee is top quality, and the staff are super-lovely.

Vanguard Specialty Coffee Co.

The Vanguard business ethic is "do no harm". Vanguard source all their coffee ethically, either straight from the farmer or through a network of trading partners, ensuring quality, transparency and a fair price paid. Without exception, all the milk they use is organic, and all the animal products are free range. The food is seasonal and amazing, and well worth a wee wander from the Octagon.

The Bay Cafe

Gorgeous food and great service combined with yet another daydream- inducing Dunedin waterfront view. Or grab your food to go and wander across the road to paddle your toes as you munch.

Cadbury World Cafe

Ignite your senses with a trip to New Zealand’s only Cadbury themed Café. The Cadbury World Café provides scrumptious food at great value … with a little bit of fun and a good dollop of Cadbury Chocolate thrown in for good measure.
