Don't turn right on the main road to Mount Cook without stopping at Verde' - a lovely country cafe in Geraldine, on the left just before the road turns right to Mount Cook. It is hidden away behind what looks like an old town hall or library, but as you approach the cafe, with its stylish headboard announcing "Verde'", its... More

Tucked away behind the gallery this was a great find set amongst a lovely cottage garden. Gorgeous food from the cabinet and great coffees. We visited twice during our three days in Geraldine.

Best place for a wholesome lunch and to meet friends or family. The baking is honest with something to suit everybody from cheese rolls to cannelloni and filo parcels. Super cute iced biscuits are particularly appealing for little ones. Awesome gluten-free options.

Delicious for dining in or take out if you're passing through or staying in Geraldine. The gf df raw fruit ball & gf chocolate mint slice I picked up plus my soy hot chocolate were all delicious. There were... More

Lovely cafe just set back off the road in Geraldine. Coffee was excellent, as was the Chorizo sausage role. Service was great and just a shame that we were only passing through

Friendly service and great classic NZ food. Warm inside on a cold day and great garden setting. Full of locals so must be good to be loved by the community
