Popular with tourists and locals alike, this is a great spot for breakfast. We opted for the full cooked breakfast, and the eggs Benedict with bacon on sourdough. Both were delicious!

We also popped in for coffee and cake yesterday afternoon which was lovely too!

Best seafood chowder ever! Lots of different seafood in delicious sauce. That being said nothing ordered by our group of four was disappointing. Wished we had discovered this place earlier in our stay so we could have eaten there more than once.

We went 3 times to this cafe in a matter of 3 days. They use fresh ingredients and straight from farm to table. The food was light and perfectly flavoured. Special mention got roasted tomato soup and carrot cake. The ambience was so positive and fresh. A must go for anybody in Wānaka. Being vegetarian had enough of choices.

Wonderful! Highly recommended for everyone and anyone, including gluten free and celiac. They have a separate fryer, totally understand the importance of cross contamination. And the food is DELICIOUS! Service was lovely, super accommodating to where we wanted to sit. The food came out in a good time without being too fast to have been properly cooked - tasted fresh and was simple but beautifully presented.
