It's a sleek cafe with plenty of space and an extensive menu to satisfy your hunger as you wait for the bad weather to pass. For breakfast, try their crowd-favourite eggs benedict or the red velvet pancakes.

How much time should I spend in Dunedin?
To get the most out of your return flights to Dunedin, it's best to spend at least three days in the city. It will give you more than enough time to see the main sights and soak up some of the city's surrounding natural beauty. As some of the top sights are outside of the city centre, renting a car with your return flights to Dunedin will go a long way. You can choose from what’s available at Dunedin International Airport (DUD) when you arrive or book your vehicle through Webjet. After settling into your hotel once arrived on your flights to Dunedin, spend your first day in the city exploring its cultural and historical attractions. Head to the Otago Museum, the Perpetual Guardian Planetarium and the Otago Community Trust Science Centre. All three are located in the same building, and there are family-friendly activities to keep even the youngest of travellers entertained. Allocate your second day in Dunedin to the Otago Peninsula. Here you'll find the Olveston Historic Home, and New Zealand's only castle, Larnach Castle, as well as plenty of wildlife-spotting opportunities. Use your final day in Dunedin to head to the Dunedin Railway Station, and buy a ticket for the Taieri Gorge Railway. The 116-kilometre journey winds past some of the region’s most spectacular scenery and is a wonderful way to end your trip to New Zealand's South Island, before heading back to Dunedin International Airport (DUD) to catch your flight home.
