Ordered several takeaway coffees over 3 days. All great. Cafe was busy most of the time and food looked great but didn't actually eat there.

We have recommended Run 76 to many people in the past however our stay at Tekapo last weekend has changed our stance on Run 76. The service was poor and although the scone looked tasty it was dry and scarcely edible. We should have realised...More

We stopped by to grab takeaway lunch and coffee. We loved the atmosphere in the cafe, and the food and coffee were really good. We loved the coffee cups, they’re beautiful! Definitely a better choice than other cafes around.

Arrived at 12:30 pm to a cafe cabinet full of mass market slabs of quiche and not much else. What happened to the excellent creative and delicious items that were there previously. So sad we turned around and walked out. Place has lost its mojo.

Standard formula of order and pay at the bar. A wide variety of food and drinks - served quickly and all very tasty. Staff are very friendly and welcoming.

Really regretted making plans to call in on journey south. Not as reviewed. Unreliable. Kitchen closed to enable them to do other work making filled rolls perhaps for bus load. Felt uncomfortable. Just took a coffee. Absolutely not for us. Drove on to Nichols Garden...More

In the middle of Tekapo village and right beside our motel, but even if it wasn't I would recommend it. Funky decor, great food and wonderful cabinet food to take for our lunches on the Cycle trail.

Easily the best option for breakfast or a casual lunch in Tekapo. We ate here several time and while the service was a bit inconsistent the food was always very good.
