We had our lunch here whilst driving to Christchurch from Queenstown on the very busy holiday weekend. There was a very good choice of cabient food, friendly and efficient service and a restful garden setting- all the ingredients we needed. Especially recommended is the chicken pie and mixed salads , particularly the noodle one.

Found this by our accident when driving from Mt Cook to Akoroa. Can't see it from the road as tucked in a bit. Really good selection of home made food and lots of salads and veg. My iced coffee with cream and ice cream was the best I have had to date! The garden is beautiful to sit and eat... More

In a nutshell, it's no wonder this place is so popular, as food, coffee and staffing combine to make it a pleasure to be there. The quality of the food is really high and well-presented, with the menu being vast as well as their being cabinet choices which looked equally appealing. Seating options include dining inside, on the veranda or... More

Stopped in Geraldine for a lunch break and wandered round town looking for somewhere to eat. Fortunately we stumbled on this place and could not believe our luck. A beautiful garden setting - we had an ouside table on the verandah. Lovely food - we enjoyed a tasty vegetarian tarte, a home made sausage roll and a salad. All the... More

Brunch visit to this busy little cafe. Reasonable service, and the food is relatively tasty. However, I found the black coffee exceptionally weak. It's a reasonable place to visit and value for money.

Was passing by the town en route to Christchurch. We were vegetarians and we took a salad and a couple of other items as takeaway. The food was quite good and the portions were decent as well. Would recommend.

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

Slightly hidden from the main road (and the crowds), this cafe was a real find on our trip to Mt Cook. Such a beautiful English cottage garden.
