Our Coffee

We are Dunedin’s premiere outlet for Belo coffee, a boutique, ethically sourced and traded roast from Christchurch.  We also serve New Zealand-made Tea Total teas.

Governor's T-Shirts

Now you can dress to impress. Or just pretend that you work here.


We have a number of colours, styles, and sizes available.  Get them at our café for $25 each.

Conference Room

We have an upstairs dining room that is ideal for business meetings or small conferences.  The Governor’s hosted the 2014 meeting of the Bible and Critical Theory Seminar to rave reviews and our conference room has also seen recent gatherings of storytellers and knitting enthusiasts. There are ample power points available and good access to the café’s free wireless broadband.  For most functions, we are happy to make the room available free of charge.
