Dunedin is welcoming Precinct Food, a café in the heart of the city’s emerging warehouse district, where the focus is on real food values and handcrafting the daily-changing menu from scratch. Precinct Food comes with a quality pedigree established over the past three years that owner Liz Christensen has built while she has owned and managed The Inspired Pantry, which has become the city’s premier corporate and conference catering business.
All Precinct Food is made freshly on the premises, with the menu changing daily. Whatever the day, guests can be assured of freshly-made items including house-made breads incorporating a wide range of tasty fillings all cooked and prepared in the purpose built kitchen. Precinct offers seasonal salads, soups, hot dishes and sweet tastes to tempt everyone and works hard to ensure all food and ideas reflect current dining trends, tastes and textures. It serves Atomic coffee and is licensed with a well curated wine and beer list.
“My passion is creating food experiences for people where the food becomes part of the story of the event, rather than just something to eat,” said Christensen, a nurse-turned-chef who trained for a Bachelor of Culinary Arts at the Food Design Institute at Otago Polytechnic.
Precinct Food is a modern, sophisticated café and event space, seating up to 80 guests. By day it’s a great café for workers and guests. Outside of café hours Precinct Food is a concept space which can be hired for food experiences and events.
Precinct Food, 125 Vogel Street, Dunedin
Open Monday – Friday from 8am – 4pm
