First time stopping in Athol. Proved to be a good place for a quick lunch with friendly service. Small but sufficient cabinet and blackboard options.

We stopped here on the way to Te Anau, glad we did. We both ordered the Big Breakfast and OMG it was so good and $18 was excellent value. Coffee was great too.

We stopped at the hide cafe for lunch on our travels, I'm celiac and its always such a hit and miss trying to find gf food options when on the road. They had a great selection of options and the food was great.. My husband...had a pie and said it was one of the best pies he has ever had.. And thats a big call. We will definitely be stopping in there again when passing through.More

There were lots of people in here eating brunch when we stopped to get ice cream. I saw that they have the hokey pokey flavor that I read everyone should try while in New Zealand - and I did. It is very sweet and I...liked it.More
