For ten years Poppies has been turning out good food in Twizel. Meat, seafood, pizza, and pasta are complemented by organic produce from the garden, fresh-baked bread and pizza bases, and a good range of local wines. On hot days Poppies opens up into a garden with long tables: it's a great place to eat, drink, socialize, and bask in the sun. They'll put out cricket sets to keep the kids entertained, too. Poppies serves brunch and dinner daily.
