Black Shag Cafe

Social Media
136 Dee Street, Invercargill

We are an intimate cafe, situated on Dee St just down from Farmers. A passionate team of hospitality craftspeople, we put our hearts and souls into creating quality food and coffee, and a welcoming and inspiring environment to enjoy it. Sustainability is at the core of our business and we make as much as we can from scratch including our alternative milks. We also grow a range of vegetables, herbs and edible flowers, as well as roasting all of our own coffee. What we can't make or grow ourselves, we source locally including using Farm Fresh South milk in glass bottles, and Te Wae Wae free range eggs. Our food philosophy is to embrace local and seasonal produce with culinary creativity, with a menu that changes regularly to reflect this. Our meals are designed to be nourishing, unique and full of flavour and our coffee to be a consistently delicious experience.


For the month of April, we are a participating business in 'Savour the South'. Our dish offering will be a delicate fillet of venison carpaccio, seasoned with single origin coffee and served with parsnip puree, maple roasted carrots, and fondant agria potatoes. For a full menu visit our website here. Savour the South is Southland’s food festival, celebrating the region’s tastiest dishes, beverages and our outstanding accommodation. Be sure to check out the Savour the South Guide 2021 to discover these offerings and more!
