To provide our district with a unique, committed hospitality business and inspire in our team a passion for exceptional food, wine and service, whilst showcasing the very best of local ingredients to our valued guests.
We are proud to support many local groups and rowing.
Our food is all made in our purpose-designed kitchen including homemade breads, which are baked daily. We make our fresh pasta, which is hand cut. All jams, relishes, pickles, dressings, sauces and condiments are made on the premises and, where possible, our vegetables and salad ingredients are grown from our own gardens. We also have an excellent range of carefully selected local and New Zealand wines to accompany your meal, including several from the Waitaki Valley.
Using the finest, freshest, locally sourced ingredients, we are able to cater to most dietary requirements, whether that be vegetarian, vegan, gluten free or dairy free.
With extensive alfresco dining and superb views of the Southern Alps, Poppies Cafe is the ideal spot to dine with a group of friends or enjoy an intimate dinner. Maybe you just want to sit back, relax and enjoy a leisurely coffee in the hassle-free and welcoming surroundings.
We are a family run business that is creating an environment where our team can grow and become leaders in the hospitality industry.
