Can’t rate this food and coffee high enough. Lots of healthy (including vegan and GF options), tasty food. A bit of a wait to be served given how popular it is but totally worth it.

We went there for lunch twice when we were in Wanaka and it was really great food both times! It’s full of great taste and it’s just really good, simple healthy food - something we have missed a lot when travelling NZ. Highly recommended 😊👌🏻

The menu has a short list, however even a picky person can find something acceptable,later on be surprised by the big portion and fresh ingredients..We love the pasta and fish ordered. Reasonably priced 選項雖然不多,即便挑食的人多少還是可以挑到勉強可以接受的餐點. 上菜後,會被大份量嚇到. 我們點的大份炸魚排是真正大方氣魄,義大利麵也是好大一盤..(一個女孩子一般是吃不消的). 考慮食物質量,真心覺得價格算挺實惠

Very nice meals which is delicious and at great value. It also is located in a great area. It's not a fancy restaurant, has tables to sit outside.
