No trip to Dunedin is complete without a visit to trendy Nova. Step down off The Octagon into this smart, city-style cafe oozing ambience, and you'll find everything from delicious breakfast classics such as bagels and panettone to an easy mix of Italian and Asian dinner dishes. Seafood gumbo is a favorite—thick, spicy soup of seafood, bacon, and sausage served with toasted rye—or select from warm Vietnamese chicken salad with crispy noodles, risotto of the day, steamed mussels, or Thai green vegetable curry, among others. Everyone comes to Nova, especially tourists and locals of an artistic bent, stepping in from the adjacent Public Art Gallery.
