Eat and drink
For a small city, Dunedin really outdoes itself when it comes to food, drink and coffee. There are too many great spots to list but it’s recommended you do your research and make sure you bring an appetite. For coffee head to Kiki Beware or Kūkū or Morning Magpie and if you’re in town on a Sunday a trip to the Otago Farmers Market is essential. The markets that start at 8am outside the Dunedin Railway Station are heaven for foodies - up to 75 vendors sell all the local produce you can carry and you must get a hot coffee and something amazing for breakfast to eat while you’re there. Burgers and beer at Good Good or pizza and beer at Tap & Dough will leave you satisfied, but the famous Emersons Tap Room will help if you need one more for the road! Albar in Stuart St is a Dunedin institution and you could do worse than find yourself holding up the bar here at the end of an evening. Out of town Careys Bay Historic Hotel at Port Chalmers is a great spot for a ploughmans and a pint, with views over the bay, and back in town Plato is a retro favourite with excellent fresh seafood.
