71 melmore terrace, cromwell
what you’ll read on our food trail guide
Why: We visited this gorgeous Italian-inspired spot one morning for a friendly welcome and a delicious brunch offering among historic buildings in the old Cromwell town.
What’s more: Take the menu and read the lovely story of Armando’s heritage and his journey to New Zealand. Of course there’s pizza and other Italian wonders to be enjoyed, given the Italian connection. But, with pies and giant cheese rolls in the cabinet, there’s a tremendous offering of traditional New Zealand too.
What else: One good thing to do here - in historic Cromwell there’s a lot of local history to explore and find out about Lake Dunstan, and the dam, and the town move - and enjoy that water view.
