Situated on Lower Stuart Street to the east of the Octagon, Morning Magpie has gained a reputation for their ridiculously good coffee, food and healthy smoothies. Roasting their own Fairtrade beans, you’ll find all the cold-drip, pour-over favourites that are a must-have for the coffee connoisseur. Sunny, bright and cosy, a visit to the Magpie is likely to make your day. You may also find it hard to resist their famous cinnamon pinwheels.
After the earthquakes 21 year old Troy Butler averted his path from art school in Christchurch to the craft of good coffee in Dunedin and hasn’t looked back since. His café is also a proud supporter of the arts, with rotating art exhibitions on display, art show openings and other events hosted in the space from time to time too.
Hours could slide by in the friendly, relaxed, well-considered aesthetic of the space; with friends, on a date, with homework, or your favourite book.
