Description: Our friendly and helpful staff will tempt you with the delicious breakfast or lunch menus. Our scrumptious homemade baking is made fresh on the premises everyday, and the delicatessen style food is perfect for a casual lunch, or food on the run. Meals can be made to order if you need to take away, or if you have a little more time to savour the flavour, enjoy in our cosy café either inside, or outside and lap up the sun. We are licensed too, so enjoy a beer or a glass of wine at the café with your meal. We also offer vegetarian meal options if you prefer. Groups are most welcome but advance notice is appreciated. Wifi is available with any Hobnail Cafe purchase, so if you want to catch up on messages and emails or upload photos from your Fox Glacier experience, then this is the perfect opportunity. The Hobnail Café is open from 7.30am daily.

Lovely breakfast - fabulous coffee - we sat outside as weather was perfect - visit only marred by a stroppy male member of staff - hence the four star rating. otherwise a perfect breakfast break!

Husband & I had 2 of their paninis for lunch - meat lovers & mushroom/chutney/bacon/cheese - they were very tasty. Served promptly & managing the difficult trick of having totally melted, oozy cheese, but not being at nuclear levels of hotness when you bite in. Good value.

Nice place to eat, a little pricey for what it is but then this is a tourist town! Food was very nice and the staff were friendly. Free wi-fi. Good coffee, but small cups.
Plenty of seating both inside and out. This cafe is in the same building as the tourist gift shop and tours so expect it to be busy especially when the buses arrive.
