Oaken is a relatively new cafe that is located in North Dunedin on Great King St. You have no doubt driven past it. Located next to a motel, there is off street parking available outside the cafe as well as parking in nearby streets. 

Seating is available downstairs with both indoor and outdoor options. The staff were more than happy to let us leave the pushchair downstairs while we opted to have our coffees upstairs. As you climb the steep stairs (little ones will need a hand) you are greeted with wall to wall windows creating  a very pleasant outlook. It was a sunny Dunedin day when we visited, with the sunshine streaming in with the view looking over the University and surrounding areas. 

Oaken uses fresh ingredients and produce and has a menu as well as cabinet food on offer that is vegan friendly.

No highchairs or a change table were available. However the friendly staff and nice atmosphere and a GIANT Teddy made it a pleasant coffee experience with the kiddies.

As well as being child friendly, Oaken is also dog friendly.
This cafe is definitely worth checking out!
