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.
Learn more about our review moderation.

Lovely coffee and good food, plus an interesting range of items for sale, and outdoor seating. Would definitely recommend for a refreshment stop.

A great friendly atmosphere. Had a delicious coffee sitting outside in the sun. Yummy cabinet food and surprisingly lots of interesting bits and pieces if you were looking for a gift.

Ideal pit-stop on Crown Range Rd ... plus several points of interest to note Well number 1, the coffee is good & is the go-to spot for daughter who works on Mt CARDRONA. This General Store is a small cozy café that has a large...car park beside for easy parking ... of course you wouldn't be taking your caravan or RV over the Crown Range Rd!!! #2) On the mountain behind this café is the 'SOUTHERN HEMISPHERE PROVING GROUND' for car testing; one of only 3 in the world. You cant see anything really but tracks up there can be spotted. #3) The efforts of the locals & operators of Cardrona in protecting the KAREAREA is emphasised with the statue on the fence line in their carpark.More

Stopped in here on our way back to Queenstown from Wanaka. Such a lovely little store with so much on offer including friendly service. The coffee is fantastic .... in fact it's the best we've had during our NZ holiday. The homemade cheese scones were...a bonus. Definitely worth stopping here if you're passing by.More

We stopped here for lunch as the Cardrona hotel was closed, and I’m glad we did. Quiet little country cafe with amazing pies. Great place to stop and grab a bite to eat or a coffee.

We just popped in for coffee and I really liked the look of the store in such a beautiful setting. Nice country modern decor and interesting selection of products on the shelves. The cabinet food looked great too. Do visit.

You simply must try the homemade Banana Loaf. Margaret welcomed me and was happy to natter whilst I drank my coffee. A very friendly place, spotlessly clean offering delicious, tempting eats. I will stop in again on my next trip through to Wanaka.

We loved the coffee (mocha, cappuccino, flat whites) the lady there makes. We loved it so much that we made a return few days later for coffee again. Loved the lemon cake they sell too. Another secret gem is the Wanaka Hand-made chocolate slabs they...sell. We had a milk chocolate slab and loved every bit of it. It was also available in mint, dark chocolate and another variety too.More
