Dining in Whanganui

Whanganui’s dining scene takes in a mix of offerings that are easy to find and sure to please. Whanganui’s café cuisine and coffee can be found in heritage buildings in the CBD, villas in side streets, an open air garden centre, down by the river and in strawberry fields.  All have their fervent supporters and reflect the popularity of the premises.  It’s hard to know where to start so enjoy the range during your stay!

Try Mud Ducks Café by the i-SITE, Element Café, Jolt, The Big “O” (for Orange) and Cracked Pepper in the Victoria Street’s heritage buildings, The Yellow House Café down by Dublin Bridge, Parnell’s and The Villa in Liverpool Street, Red Eye Café and Mischief on Guyton in the middle of town, Mint Bar and Café across the road from the Museum, the Funky Duck at Virginia Lake, Windermere Farms on SH3 and Café 4forty4 at Upokongaro for just a few! They all have their own unique character and style.

Ambrosia Deli and Café wonderfully combines both with a speciality range of delicatessen goods.

Big Orange Whanganui

Ethnic cuisine is varied and good – Chinese, Thai, Korean, Indian, Turkish, Mexican and Japanese are all in town.  Don’t forget the red caravan and coffee carts in Majestic Square.

Bars and restaurants offer a range of styles, menus and atmosphere.  Stellar Restaurant and Bar and the Ceramic Wine Bar are both well supported and located in historic buildings with plenty a tale to tell.  The Rutland Arms Inn is popular with locals and visitors and also offers tastings of craft beers.  Special mention has to go to Georges Fisheries for their retro fish and chip restaurant – think chips, buttered bread and vinegar, formica tables and chairs.

Still central are Delicious Café and Wine Bar, Angora and The Grand Hotel. Down by the river there is Caroline’s Boathouse Bar & Eatery where on the first Sunday of every month you’ll see the “Petrolhead’s Breakfast” as they host the owners of fabulous hot rods and classic cars, sometimes up to 100 a time.  Across the City Bridge and looking out over the river is the Red Lion Inn.

And of course, Whanganui’s River Traders and Farmers Markets provide plenty of new tastes and temptations on a Saturday morning – fresh, locally grown fruit, vegetables and goat cheese, hangi, puha pesto, pizza, pancakes, sweet treats and fresh juices.

These aren’t the only eating establishments so please discover some others, find something new and have a look at these Trip Advisor Reviews  below!
