One Happy Restaurant

Great coffee, amazing baking, brunch and delicious dinners paired with interesting wines. Dunedin's best kept secret eatery in the suburbs... don't forget the Texan wood-grill, we've been cooking on applewood since 2009!

2013, 2014, 2015, 2016 & 2017 Cuisine Good Food Awards Finalist "a neighbourhood feel and solid bistro hits"

We are nestled in the Maori Hill neighbourhood, an easy 5mins drive from the city center or meander through the historic buildings up the hill to Balmacewen Rd.

Herbs, greens & lettuces used in our kitchen are lovingly raised in our organic garden.

We unfortunately do not take bookings for dessert, we welcome you to pop in and we will find you a table. 


From the 19th of April we are closing our Pop Up  restaurant in the Octagon as we get ready to "move back home". Currently we are not taking bookings but we will resume shortly..we look forward to seeing you soon!
