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.

Stopped for lunch twice. Best rump Steak burger I have had in ages. Milkshake and iced coffee nice. A seating available inside and outside on decking. Highly recommended

Stopped for a coffee, nice outdoor seating and the coffee was okay. Diary type products also available and the toilets nice and clean.

We stopped here for takeaways after our Lake Manapouri/Doubtful Sound cruise, and although it was 5 minutes before closing we were welcomed and able to order a seafood basket, plus burger & chips. All of which were plentiful and delicious. Thank you!

we didn't have lunch but got some good coffee for our roadtrip to Milford. Nice lake stroll within a few minutes drive, if you are in a mood for walking.

We stopped in Manapouri for lunch on our drive to Te Anau and happened upon Brown's Cafe. The cafe itself is ok with a decent food selection. You order at the counter (and pay), and find a seat to await your food. There's a mini mart as part of the business that has supplies and offers a distraction while you wait. The food was reasonable and staff friendly. I think the best part was the location and the view out the front of the establishment.

No surprises. What you see is what you get. Fish and chips or a burger. A groceries section if you forgot to bring something.

This place has many names and don't know what's correct. We had 2 Hawaiian burgers which tasted good and 2 orange juices in bottles for lunch. One of our more expensive lunches at over 30 Bucks. Next day we bought 2 pre made sandwiches at 6.50 each. Beef.pickle.tomato.lettuce. to take into milford. They tasted good. Decor getting dated.

Had the burger with fries. The burger really was quite large but the meat was mediocre quality at best - will not return here for another one.

Visited twice, had a snack lunch and a breakfast. The food offered was simple cafe food and generally good (not the pies). Coffee was good, nice friendly service and good wifi. Would recommend it for a light meal or snack.

A great spot to stop for breakfast, lunch or a snack with lovely views of Lake Manapouri. Sit down for a $10 fish & chip lunch! Best giant cheese scones in the south. Cheerful fast service, with takeaways too.

We stopped in for a quick bite. The burgers were excellent - served with beetroot! Yum, the way they should be (down under). Learned about funny licencing laws - we could not touch our beers - they had to be delivered to our table by the waitress and we enjoyed a walk in the park across the road, out to where the river runs into the lake. Recommended stop for food and to stretch the legs. Oh, nice view from the Café too.

We went to this place and had a simple lunch. We ordered 3 different kind of burger and they all really nice! Fresh veggie (we love the beet root inside the burger), good tasted meat. From the big window you can see unblocked sea view. We were very happy to choose this restaurant at this quite town. BTW, they changed name to Cathedral cafe!

From the price, the look and the location my husband and I were not expecting much! But we were pleasantly surprised the food is good and fresh! I had snapper and my husband had a venison burger
