Come to Mud Ducks for a bite, or stay for a meal

Our food is fresh, flavourful and served in a relaxed riverside setting.

We’re open mornings and until the late afternoon, serving breakfast, lunch, coffee, tea, various drinks and cabinet food.

Situated on the banks of the Whanganui river, and only metres from the CBD, we’ve got the best location in town. We share our building with the Whanganui i-site as well as The Sarjeant Art Gallery upstairs.

The perfect place to go for everything from a morning espresso, to a leisurely lunch, afternoon drink or dinner out.

There’s plenty of parking right out front, plus we love dogs! There are plenty of outdoor undercover seats for our furry friends.


We are proud to offer a tailored catering experience for your next event. We cater for all times of the day. Breakfast, morning and afternoon teas, lunches, platters, salads, baking and desserts.

Check out our menus for ideas and inspiration. You can serve these yourself or we can send our professional staff to do the work for you.

We are happy to work with you to suit your requirements, spin us your vibe, you never know what we can come up with. Don’t worry if its short notice, we can put something together for you.

We have an amazing team of staff, from those cooking up a storm in the kitchen, busy making all our sweet treats, keeping the cabinet full of tasty morsels or whipping up our menu food. To our front of house team who have a passion for churning out the best coffee around, as well as making all our customers smile.

OPENING HOURS: Monday to Sunday 8.30am – 4.00pm. Closed public holidays
