Steam Café is home to Oamaru’s best coffee, roasted daily on the premises and served in one of the town’s most distinctive heritage buildings, between the i-Site information centre and Forrester Gallery, right in the centre of town.
In addition to our award-winning coffee, we also serve a beautiful cooked breakfast of croissants and made-to-order eggs, along with a wide variety of freshly baked treats, such as our famed brioche, cheese scones and ginger loaf. We also offer delicious fruit smoothies and juices, and a broad range of lunchtime meals, including sandwiches, salads, soups (in season) and gourmet pies, all made by us, by hand, and under our own Steam.
While you enjoy our gourmet food and drinks, you can soak up the sun in our private garden, complete with play area for the children and tables under umbrellas. Or sit outside at the front of the café and watch the action along Oamaru’s Thames Street, enjoying the view of Oamaru’s stunning Victorian architecture.
So while you are in Oamaru, be sure to come by and let our friendly staff and exquisite coffee help you to let off some Steam after your ride on the Alps 2 Ocean Cycle Trail.
Steam is open from 8am to 4.30pm M-F and from 8.30am Saturday and Sunday.
