I always enjoy having lunch at Verde Café when I'm visiting family in Timaru and this time was no exception. A lot of choice in the cabinet for savoury & sweet food and the food was very tasty. Good coffees to finish

Just stopped in this town for a break from driving and saw this place. It has a lovely garden setting with beautiful native birds which was very soothing. The raspberry chocolate brownie was delicious. They have soy and almond milk.

My friends steak sandwich was tough and two slices of bread and lettuce didn't make the eating any easier. Vegetable soup was okay. Caesar Salad was tasty as was my salmon dish - though there was rather a lot of potato. Coffees were good! Lovely...More

We are a family run cafe set just behind the old post office in Geraldine past the amazing galleries with local artists. A daytime cafe serving breakfast and lunch, our menu includes classics like Egg Benedict and fresh local Aoraki Salmon alongside the chefs daily creations on the blackboard and a great cabinet. Naturally we have gluten free, vegan and vegetarian options. The coffee is great! We have a cosy and warm atmosphere inside and a beautiful cottage garden outside, come and have a look and enjoy!
