Top Coffee Spots in Dunedin, New Zealand

This is the post I have been the MOST excited to write and also the post that I kept putting off in case my ordering changed. PSA it changed just an hour ago and it is final (with the exception that I could discover new cafes here in Dunedin in the future).

ANYWAY! I’m excited, I hope you’re excited, I think all the local penguins are excited so that should give you the extra push to be pumped.

The Fix

15 Fredrick St. Dunedin

A cafe hidden on a side street not far from the University campus. They have a wide array of hot and iced drinks (my recent favorite is their iced coffee, the equivalent of an American iced latte)

They have both indoor and an enclosed outdoor patio with ample seating. There is an outdoor heater and blankets scattered around so I am excited to take advantage of it when winter starts to pick up.

{peep me}

GOOD, FREE WIFI! Just ask for the password and they’ll hook you up!

Another bonus (I’m just loading on the bonuses oops) is the food is really good and not that expensive. On top of that, there’s options to satisfy any dietary requirements/restrictions. Wait one more… there is a takeaway window facing the sidewalk so if you are running around like a crazy maniac but still want your fix (ha fix at the fix im so funny) then they have your back!!

I LOVE coming here to get some homework done or even just to sit and relax with friends.

Peep another gorgeous aesthetic.

Oh, hey, did I say this is my favorite cafe in Dunedin? um, yes I did just say that.

so if you find yourself in the area it is not far from the Octagon, make the trip! & beware they have limited hours on Saturdays and are closed on Sundays  :///


Morning Magpie

46 Stuart Street, Dunedin

A cafe in between the Octagon and the railway station. A rustic feel with some homely antiques and art. It was the first coffee I got on my first morning in Dunedin and it did not disappoint. If you are after the perfect frothed milk, then this is your best bet.

They do have food options but I sadly haven’t gotten around to doing that yet. There is wifi but the barista mentioned that sometimes its really slow, all depending on how many people are using it.

What I appreciate most about the Magpie is how plain old cups don’t exist here. The pug cup up top is also from here WHICH IS SO EXCITING!


The Albion Cafe

Albion Lane, 272 George Street, Dunedin

Hidden in a side alley surrounded by shops, one day I came across this gem. The baristas are the sweetest; although I’ve never had their sandwiches or baked goods, they are fresh every day and are proven to be popular. I love coming here for a quieter cafe vibe to focus on homework.

There is wifi!!! the password is up on the menu board in case you’re curious.

I wanted to stick to a top three, but decided I couldn’t leave this next one out. So, lets call this an honorable mention. here we go.

The Penguin Cafe

1726 High Cliff road, Portobello, Dunedin

A cafe situated on the Otago Peninsula around 30 minutes drive or by bus outside Dunedin. Once again, a cafe with the sweetest baristas and great, fresh, reasonably priced food.

Even if you aren’t a tourist (or trying to tell yourself that you’re past that phase), its a really fun cafe to look around at all the posters and brochures. There’s a bunch of maps and books on the local area as well to have a pop in to see.

aaaaaaand yes there are cute photos of penguins

I had so much fun putting this together. I hope to put together more lists of things and places that I’ve found to be my favorite.

Shout out to those or are after the perfect cup of coffee, I hope you find it soon.

I am looking forward to documenting my journey. All of the support so far has been amazing, so thank you.

Lots of love,

foot
