Café and Gift Shop in Omarama

Merino Country Café and Gifts is conveniently located in the town centre near hotels and motels, a garage, hot pools and shops. Our café is open from 8am to 5.30pm in the summer and from 8.30am to 5pm in the winter.

Merino Country Café & Gifts offers a wide range of delicious home-style food and also the complete tea and coffee story. With 120 seats in our dining room, we offer a refreshing pit stop for everyone from individual travellers right through to large tour groups. You can choose from an all-day breakfast or a café lunch and there is homemade baking available throughout the day.

After your lunch or coffee break, we invite you to browse through our extensive gift shop where you can pick up not only any last-minute gifts, but also a quality merino/possum knitted garment or jacket for yourself. Our range of this iconic New Zealand product is very comprehensive and we offer a worldwide postal delivery service. Also take time to have a look at our beautifully displayed doll collection by world–renowned doll-maker Jan McLean.
