Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

As well as being a well-stocked shop, the café offers a great menu and the ginger and pear muffins were exceptional. Manapouri is fortunate in having this shop/café.

It was very disappointing when we visited the cafe. We asked for a sandwich and pointed to the one required. It was eventually served toasted which we had not requested. The Covid sign on the door was faded and very hard to scan. There appeared...to be great disinterest in in serving us.More

Very disappointed. I’ve never seen such expensive prices for such mediocre food. I ordered $6 bag of chips and got a half bag full.. Also $5 for a muffin?? Or $6 for milk?? No thanks. The only upside to this cafe was most of the...staff were nice even after seeing what looked like the manager or owner treating the guy working there like crap. Will not be returning thats for sure.More

We both had Blue Cod Chips and Salad. The Chips were nice. The Blue Cod had been in the Freezer for a very long time. You would not know it was Blue Cod. Very disappointed for what you pay. The Salad was good. Coffee was...nice. Hope the new owner does well. Service was very good.More

Stopped for coffee and to waste some time before our cruise. It was a busy place as many others had the same idea. They served good coffee and freshly baked berry muffins hot out of the oven.

Stayed in Manapouri for 9 days, fishing and doing the Kepler, stopped in here most days. Great Snapper and chips for $10, good coffee (and i'm a bit of a coffee snob) good sized rolled icecreams also, customer service was just ok but definitely does...not affect my life enough to moan about.More

After a walk along the lake, we stopped for warm beverages and muffins. It had some grocery shelves and gift/souvenir items. My husband found a hat he'd been look for there.

Terrible service, terrible coffee. Went back to Te Anau (Sandfly Cafe) for decent coffee (very nice indeed). Not sure why this lady in Manapouri bothers. If you are going to be in business, why not do it properly. My advice, don't go there. It was...expensive too.More

Avoid going here at all costs! Stock up before you get there. The proprietors clearly do not appreciate custom and dont deserve to be running a business especially one so heavily dealing with nz tourism. Looked like he'd just got out of bed, treated me...like I was invisible while serving someone else which I guess is a compliment cause I'm not small 😃 Said no breakfast served til 9am and it was 8.40am&lady in kitchen. This place could now take over NZs rudest cafe. See other reviews.More
