We ordered a baked potato plus a salad. The staff seemed over worked or inexperienced. Our meals were placed on the wrong table and the diners had to hand them over to us. The food was ok but nothing special. Hope they improve.

We were initially just looking for a coffee shop but once we got inside and saw the menu, we decided we had to stay for lunch too.

Normally a carnivore but love this place - eat there often when I am in town. The meals here are great if you just want a light snack or something more substantial.

Very nice place to rest while visiting Dunedin and have lovely cappucino. Watch people passing by on the street, read a bit in a daily newspaper, treat yourself with warm brownies with yoghurt, just perfect! I didn't have linch there, but all the vegetarian dishes looked very tasty and fresh.

We were in Dunedin for a day and being vegetarian took the opportunity to visit Potpourri. So nice to be able to order anything from the menu. I had eggs benedict, my son had the falafel burger and my daughter had waffles. So good that my son spent the following days plotting how we could go through Dunedin to our... More

If you are looking for delicious, healthy food in a cosy, friendly atmosphere, you don't need to look further than Potpourri Vegetarian Cafe. We ate the pizza and lasagna with salad. Both were really tasty, fresh, and healthy. We also had the gluten-free date scone and the birdseed slice. Yum!!! The staff are delightfully friendly, the range of food is... More

Absolutely delicious selection of cakes muffins and more. Conveniently located for me at my new job so will be spending plenty of my hard earned money here. Highly recommended for those with allergies.
