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.

This is worth a stop on the way into Wanaka from the south at the airfield. Good coffee, good food, nice people.

Good coffee, great decor and a nice place to chill out. On the airfield so always something happening. Not so keen about the museum next door though. The Transport Museum just down the street is the better option.

After the Transportarion and Toy musuem we drove not wven 5 minutes to get here. This cafe reminds me of what you might find inside a small aviation airport. The decor is very lively and the sense of comfortable just makes you want to stay...More

Don't stop here for a quick coffee, it won't be a quick getaway, had to wait 15 minutes for a takeaway flat white. Didn't eat.
