We stopped at this cheery little cafe en route from Queenstown to Dunedin for a quick lunch stop. The sausage rolls and Moroccan chicken rolls were very tasty! Sweets were nice too. Great choice if in Ranfurly!

We arrived just after opening and got great coffee and food quickly from two charming baristas. It's right opoosite the station for Rail Trailers and it's well worth looking through the Maniototo 4Square store next door.

Maniototo Cafe was the perfect stop off for coffe, cheese scones and massive sausage rolls! It definitely made the bike ride from Wedderburn to Hyde much more enjoyable and we will recommend you to anyone coming your way or doing the Otago Rail Trail! Thanks...More
