ADJØ is a cosy space with big windows and offerings that go far beyond typical New Zealand café fare.

Owner-operator Jonas is originally from Denmark and ADJØ’s menu showcases comforting, delicious dishes from that part of the world. If you visit in the morning, the porridge menu is certainly worth a look.

In Denmark, porridge (or ‘grød’) is a staple. It can be oatmeal, stewed apples or even risotto, as ‘grød’ refers to the cooking method and not the ingredients. Porridge options are deliciously extensive at ADJØ and two of their stalwarts are: oat porridge with homemade caramel, fresh apples and roasted almonds and (arborio) rice porridge made with almond milk, served with spiced sugar and a knob of butter. Pair any of the porridges with a barista coffee for maximum enjoyment.

On the savoury side of the menu you’ll find options like ‘Sardines’ which is served on housemade rye with goat's cheese, mayo and toasted sesame seeds. It’s simple but supremely tasty. ‘Danish Meatballs’ meanwhile, another popular item, is made from free-range pork mince and served on housemade rye with housemade remoulade, pickled cucumber and crispy onions. Both are menu staples.

Finding it too hard to pick just one thing? Go for ADJØ's Breakfast, a snack platter with a soft-boiled egg, market cheese, housemade rye bread, whipped brown butter, parsley salt and a mini muesli cup with stewed apples and yoghurt.

The wine and cocktail lists feature the best of Otago’s offerings together with classic numbers including Negroni. ADJØ even make their own schnapps, which go hand in hand with their menu’s flavours.
