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.

Frequently for coffee and cake with a friend. The staff know my name and are always friendly and helpful. They have a loyalty coffee card, something that I value. Icecreams are generous in a hot day.

Random place that we found on the way to Takepo. Food was OK, nice service, and overall you can find something you’d like. The pies were not great, good chicken nuggets and chips. Not bad for random place.

We called in to the cafe for morning tea last week during our tour of the South Island. Had a delicious coffee and scrumptious cakes. Made terrible error of leaving my coat behind on the chair. It was not until several hours down the road...to Queenstown did I discover that I had left my very expensive Kathmandu jacket behind. We rang the cafe and the staff could not have been more helpful in helping me get the jacket back. By sending them a prepaid self addressed packet, they got the retrieval of my jacket underway. The jacket has now been posted and is enroute to Australia. Thanks everyone at the Oasis. Not only great food and drinks, but wonderful service and empathy as well! I wonder if the jacket will beat me home?More

Fantastic spot to stop for refreshments on the way through Omarama; standard snacks and coffee for the adults, ice-creams and slushies for the younger ones. Good selection - so rather popular as a result. Efficient and friendly staff turned things over quite nicely. Will be...through the area again, and stopping again at The Oasis for sureMore

Rude abrupt lady behind the bar, one of those places that everyone stops and stares at you when you walk in. Don’t service food apart from fries. Won’t be back

Stopped for lunch. Plenty of food choice. I had a bacon and egg pie which was stored cold so it wasn't overcooked in the warmer. I had it reheated and it was very nice. Staff were very friendly and efficient.

Stopped here twice now for a coffee as they’re really good. Nice little place close to the petrol station so an easy place to grab fuel then a drink and a snack or change of scenery if you sit down.

Hi amanda, I'd be surprised if they bother to stay open late, the service was as shocking as the coffee. If you can find a different place, it's not at all inviting.
