We arrived in Dunedin about noon planning on having lunch at this cafe. It was full but we were given the choice of waiting 15 minutes or taking a table outside with heaters. We chose to go outside. I had neglected to take a jacket so I quickly realized it was pretty cold outside. Jill, our waitress, offered me a cloth covering to put around my shoulders to keep me warm and then she brought her own jacket to me. I was amazed that any waitress would do this. It was most appreciated and I could enjoy our meal without freezing. Needless to say, she was rewarded with a very nice tip. The food was excellent as well. If we go back to Dunedin I will certainly return to this restaurant. Jill went way beyond the normal customer service duties! So sweet of her.

The food here is fantastic! The first day was there for Happy Hour where drinks are cheap and apps are like half price! Actually went back with the kids for dinner the same day. Get this, $5.00 kids means with a drink! Wednesday night was awesome as it is pasta night and I had the Chicken Parm which was to die for. It is so good, it is busy most nights but usually only a 10 minute wait and there are benches outside. I'm on vacation but the locals know!
Just great food at great prices, you will not be disappointed!

We live in the area and whenever we have company in town this time of the first places we take them for dinner or lunch.

The food is always delicious and the portions are BIG. I always leave with left overs. If you go for lunch, ask for Jill and tell her Peggy sent you!
