Jagz of Village Green, Invercargill NZ

Now that is a hot chocolate! After a big night the night before, followed by a decent sleep, we found our way to Jagz of Village Green, for a Sunday Brunch on a rather cold Southland morning.

First impressions are really good with plenty of seating areas, reasonably spaced tables set amongst clean inviting surroundings. The breakfast menu looked intriguing. Service was friendly, without too much of a wait.

I chose the hot smoked salmon, which sounded appealing. Very good choice on my part, this was a delicious, warming breakfast. The beautifully soft salmon fell apart easily.

All the meals were fresh, rather tasty and reasonably priced. I must admit to being a little envious of a table in the corner, enjoying a wine with brunch. Now that would have been a fantastic idea, if one had not overindulged, just slightly, the night prior 😄.

Take the time to enjoy your meal here, there’s plenty of reason to linger!Maybe your choice will be the tantalising, full omelette below…


Just Real Food, Invercargill, New Zealand

This simple name tells exactly what you will receive from this Invercargill cafe/takeaway. Cakes, slices, pastries etc are all baked and prepared on the premises.

If you’re a local, you may have grabbed a bite to eat from here, if you haven’t then you’re missing out. This is where you will find fresh, real food.

We dropped by for a quick breakfast snack one December Invercargill morning, whilst travelling throughout the South Island. I chose a cheese roll which was deliciously cheesy, soft and very fresh. Hubby chose a wrap, jam packed with scrambled egg, hash brown, bacon, cheese and extras.

The cakes and slices beckoned from the confines of their window, however we just couldn’t fit them in on this occasion. The same applied to these very inviting pastries below.

Milkshakes, cold drinks and barista style coffees are also available. There are a couple of tables outside if you feel those paper bags filled with goodies, will not make it further than the shop exit.

We couldn’t pack this little shop up and bring it back with us, however check it out if you’re traversing Dee Street in Invercargill, you won’t be disappointed. Home cooked style, fresh, served with local friendly service, real food like this, cannot be passed by.
