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 & 2019 Cuisine Good Food Awards Finalist and One to watch "a neighbourhood feel, this eatery serves up bistro-styled fare - comfort food cooked using classic techniques"

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. 


We take bookings for breakfast, lunch and dinner.

For groups of 10 people and over please email for a reservation
