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.

I have been to this establishment 4 times, only once was my two children and I treated with respect and courtesy. I hope your food is better than your service. I will never be back.

Diner is in an American 50's theme, featuring license plates for all 50 states. Coffee and food is good, staff is friendly. Most of the customers appear to by aircraft pilots.
