If you're driving the main highway through the centre of the South Island I recommend visiting Twizel for a coffee, breakfast or lunch. It is well worth the short detour off the main highway and, in my experience, better than the cafes in nearby Tekapo....The Hydro cafe is right in the centre of the small town. It has a fun atmosphere with very good coffee and a good selection of cabinet food plus a blackboard menu.More
Came here for a coffee and a bite to eat on our way out of Twizel. For some reason the kitchen was closed so there was only cabinet food which was fine if not great. The coffee was very nice, the service very friendly and...we sat outside in the sunshine which was very pleasant.More
Terrible service! Nothing is really what it is. So check before ordering. Milkshake is just a milk with added flavour. Hot dog is in fact a fried sausage with no bread. We have asked for a dessert and actually the waitress didn’t order it and...there was nothing left and this was our fault. There are numbers but when comes the plate they are asking each table to who it belongs... maybe good for a coffee but nothing more.More
