Build Your Own Breakfast

Top Nosh  is THE cafe located a short walk up the road from us in Tapanui. Yesterday after a local loop walk we called into Top Nosh and while there I photographed these food items sitting on the timber bar in the front window. Quite novel… cooked breakfast as painted rocks 🙂

Tapanui, West Otago, New Zealand


With our hot drinks we had… orange and poppy seed cake. Yum!

    1. Hahaha.. it’s not that uncommon to use the word “nosh” here in NZ. Nigel is walking to Top Nosh right now to pick us up some cheese muffins.


  1. Benjamin is so excited to see “rocks painted to look like real food!” I suppose that I should explain that we are a wee part of the “Kindness Rocks Project”. On our “adventuring jaunts” we carry a backpack to collect his “treasures” to bring back home for “keeping and using”. Among the “using” ones are the small rocks that we find, that are cleaned and colorfully painted with pictures and words. When they are ready, we take them on our next excursion and leave them to be found, to hopefully brighten someone’s day. We are always delighted to discover them “gone” on our return trips! Benjamin thinks that we should paint some just like these : “cause, everybody loves breakfast!” Top Nosh sounds like one of my favorite places to visit, I love breakfast for any and every meal of the day…so does Benjamin! Thank-you x 2!!

  2. Here in Western Australia painted rocks are hidden in public spaces and then shared on social media for kids to find. If you find a painted rock you’re supposed to replace it with another. It was a gorgeous local idea to get kids off their phones and outside ❤

    1. Top Nosh always have little cakes on display but they change the flavours. The orange and poppyseed cakes are easily my favourite – I hope they do them again soon!
