I love the food and ambiance of this cafe, the staff are friendly and helpful and there is usually parking close by. You can sit in a window seat and watch the world go by while tucking into an eggs benedict or a full breakfast yum, yum.

Eight of us dined at Cafe Rue last week. Everyone of us had the most delicious meal from fish,lamb shanks & chicken. Beautifully cooked and presented. Starters of a selection of breads & dips were generous.Also the staff were friendly and tentative. I would recommend a booking here

Having visited here several times for morning coffee and yummy scones, we thought we would try it for lunch. We were really disappointed with the food. The Thai beef salad was a mass of iceberg lettuce with some bits of beef and crushed up instant noodles, the lettuce was the strongest flavour in the dish. It wasn't nice at all.... More

Friendly staff, very tasty vegetarian option, stuff capsicum yum. We also required a gluten free meal, they were very helpful and checked the ingredients thoroughly. This is very reassuring.

We had a large table for a family birthday. Plenty of room around table. What a fantastic night. The staff were just amazing. The Meals were enjoyed by all. And they even made the birthday cake also.

We had the pleasure of dining here after our son's graduation. Absolutely wonderful place, nothing was a problem they really made this amazing day just that bit more special. Our waitress was so helpful and provided the best service, (to be fair all staff were top notch). Totally recommend Cafe Rue. Thanks so so much :)

This is a top choice . The service is very good, and the food is excellent ( I recommend the specials). The price is reasonable for the quality . I would rate this as the best restaurant we ate in in Dunedin.

Wow, what a find. We stopped here after looking around and wanting to try something a little different for lunch. I had the pork fillets on a scallop potato bed with mushrooms and it was delicious. The prices where not to expensive and very cheap for the quality of the meal. Will be visiting again. Yum.
