Whether you’re looking to a break away from a busy day at the office or after a calm spot to have lunch with your partner, pay a visit to this urban coffee oasis on Princes Street in the Dunedin CBD, where there are many who venture to Nectar each day like bee’s to honey.
Proudly serving Supreme coffee, the cafe’s owners have culminated the wisdom of over 20 years of hospitality experience to create this inner-city gem to cater to the locals. And it is this close relationship with their regulars that has become a huge part of the cafe’s character. With an array of fresh counter food, Nectar also have an extensive menu with most items available gluten-free, where you’ll find your breakfast and lunch favourites to things a little more out there such as a breakfast tortilla.
With three levels of dining, hide away in the den, sit on the large, chatty tables near the front windows or climb up to the gallery and out to the patio, where you’ll feel like you’ve escaped to a palm tree paradise. The cafe is open from 7am to 2pm, but do have a liquor license if you feel like a glass of vino with your rye-meal sandwich; Nectar makes their own bread so their sandwiches are a must-try.
