Treat Yourself

Home: Welcome


Wild Sage Cafe is an eclectic cosy nook in the heart of North Otago. We serve a range of lovingly homemade food. Our coffee is from a small boutique roastery in Dunedin called Common Ground. Always happy to cater for vegans and vegetarians. We also have dairy-free and gluten-free options.

We are proud to serve some amazing wines from the Waitaki Valley, including Ostler Wines and their award-winning Pinot Noir and Pinot Gris.

"The 'Eggs Benedict' is to die for! Easily the best I have ever had! Terrific service, wonderful food and perfect location. I look forward to coming here again!" G. Muir
