Great food.. we come here every day since arriving in Wanaka. Great coffees, tap beers, loved their beer and chicken burgers with extra small size of thick chips, pork belly ramen, yum. We saw some pizzas at other tables, might try that next time. When seated undercover there are heaters above tables. Great overlooking lake Wanaka and do some people watching. Grab a table, check menu out, go inside order and pay and food and drinks come to table. Also seating inside and upstairs. - Picture of Kai Whakapai Cafe, Restaurant & Bar, Wanaka
