The Hide Cafe & Garden Bar
Ranked #2 of 3 Restaurants in Athol

Description: The Hide is located in the small township of Athol, on the highway between Invercargill and Queenstown. Our historic stone building is one of the oldest commercial buildings in Southland. The site dates back to the 1870's when it is thought to have been used as a Saddlery for the passing Gold Rush traders. The Hide is now a thriving Cafe & Garden Bar where travellers and locals alike, stop by to make use of our lovely garden, drink from our fully stocked bar (or takeaway from our Bottle Store), taste our range of food and fabulous coffee, or pick up some essentials in our General Store for their onward journey.

First time stopping in Athol. Proved to be a good place for a quick lunch with friendly service. Small but sufficient cabinet and blackboard options.

We stopped here on the way to Te Anau, glad we did. We both ordered the Big Breakfast and OMG it was so good and $18 was excellent value. Coffee was great too.

We stopped at the hide cafe for lunch on our travels, I'm celiac and its always such a hit and miss trying to find gf food options when on the road. They had a great selection of options and the food was great.. My husband had a pie and said it was one of the best pies he has ever had.. And thats a big call. We will definitely be stopping in there again when passing through.
