About Nova

A Dunedin institution since 1995, Nova is a spacious light filled 80 plus seat café by day and restaurant by night.
Our coffee, provided by Allpress, another institution, has been with us since the beginning. A product that has been around for 30 years and another reason why our customers keep coming back.
We are open 7 days a week so whether you are dining in or if you are just popping in for a takeaway coffee and something from our well stocked cabinet, you will not be disappointed.
Come and experience the reinvigorated team and our refreshed menu by our outstanding Head Chef, Mat Lewis.

Thank you for the great breakfast and service. It was an excellent place to bring a large group for an end of year catch up.

We have a team with a broad range of allergies and dietary requirements which always makes eating together quite a challenge. Nova has been the best place we have eaten by far. The chefs and waiters went out of their way to accommodate everyone's needs, the food was delicious and the Nova staff were welcoming and attentive. We had clean plates all round and enjoyed a really relaxing evening together. The perfect way to celebrate and say thank you to everyone on our team. Thank you Nova for a very special night X

Simply beautiful food. The Nova burger and the chicken parmigiana were both delightful. The chocolate tart was probably a little bitter for our taste, but still fine. Will definitely return!
