Croque-o-dile Cafe (Dunedin, NZ). Crocs under the Brolly.

Yesterday, Sunday, we visited Croque-o-dile Cafe situated within the beautiful Dunedin Botanic Gardens, New Zealand. We come to the cafe most times we visit the Gardens!

Croque-o-dile Cafe is housed within a building shaped like an umbrella. In front of the cafe building is a stainless steel worm (young children love to play on this).

There are lots of crocs inside the cafe. These ones follow each other in a long line around the cafe.

Large windows enable you to get great views of the gardens and enjoy a spot of people-watching. The cafe serves tasty food and drink and is a great place to sit and relax.

I love the umbrella structure inside the cafe.

The umbrella spokes and the ceiling frame make an interesting pattern. (Multiple images stitched together).

  1. What a neat place! We don’t have crocodiles in Louisiana. At least, none that I know of. But just about any place you find water, especially in the lower half of the state, you should look for an alligator. And snakes. Lots and lots of snake. While I’ve got found a gator cafe, I’ve found gator on the menu in plenty of places.

    1. Really? I’d never have guessed gator would be on a menu! Have you eaten it? Can’t say the idea appeals to me… kinda imagine this tough, rubbery meat! Guess the locals there have a way of making a tasty meal out of it!
