We ate here twice during our stay as it looked like the best place for lunch in Ohakune. The food was good value and the staff friendly and helpful. The cafe has a pleasant ambience and we enjoyed eating there.

coffee was exceptional, tasty and yummy! Great selections of cakes deserts and paninis. Egg Benedict with salmon on potato rosti was amazing, hollandaise sauce is the best I have ever tried! Very friendly service! We had a great Sunday brunch at Utopia!

One of our regular coffee and snack stops. Great counter food, tasty panini and apple pie on this occasion. Would recommend counter food over meals which seemed a little pricey.

We only visited the cafe for two toasties which were reasonably priced but nothing special. Maybe other options on the menu would have been better.

We came here for lunch. Kids pancakes are tiny for $10.50. Mussels come without any bread for $17.80, when asked for bread this is an extra $3.50. Not at all impressed.

Good quality coffee. Stopped in on way to Wellington. Poor quality salmon bagel. Service was slow because of a member of staff was complaining about her boss and working hours to another staff member.
