... hard as that is to believe, after 16 days all over South Island, this place gets the award. A passionate, expert & friendly Barista is behind this success, plus ... "every coffee is a double shot"... which goes to explain part of the equation...More

Three of us had lunch there. The menu was small. The food was decent, but not knock-your-socks-off. It's a bit out of Wanaka, so I wouldn't go out of my way to eat there. However, it was a serviceable lunch.

We really enjoyed our stop here. We were with a large group to visit the museum but the staff coped well. We had cappuccinos and they were very good. Scones were very large and great flavour. We would definitely go back.

Quickly becoming a regular habit! Consistently great coffee, pies to die for, and some of the friendliest staff I've ever encountered. Family focused with amazing fluffies for the kids, and budget minded prices. A must do when wanting to escape the rabble that is Wanaka.

We had the venison sandwich and fries. Sandwich was seasoned well with a little slice, generous portion. Fries were exactly what you'd expect. Great place for a quick lunch when traveling

We had a lovely, affordable breakfast for 5 here. Service was relaxed and the food lovely. A great place to watch the sky divers land and the planes take off.
