What a find ! Will come back to spend more time to browse the shop of goodies. Our takeaway quiche, salad & vegetarian filos were excellent.

We went there leisurely on a Sunday morning to get a nice brunch. We were very disappointed with the rude manner from the owner when we asked if we could have cream as an extra on our waffles. When the waffles arrived they were stale and heavy and the bacon was fatty and greasy. Service from other staff was good... More

Thankyou for you review. The waffles are made there and then, fresh and many compliments on them every day, as on our organic bacon. I apologise for my impatience with you but when you go through a menu , item by item and ask is there cream with each , I assume you were lactose intolerant. It seemed all you... More

Great food but the barista team are the slowest I've ever seen. No one in but a 15 min wait Such a shame as we won't come back here and it's an easy fix.

Thank you Scott. Our baristas are highly regarded, as you can see in most of our reviews. Perhaps you visited the cafe when the All Blacks v Ireland rugby replay had finished and fifty people descended on the cafe! Or the wedding party of 40! You are obviously a hospo expert or one of those who wants their coffee now,... More

As you pass through Cardrona & head down the hill towards Wanaka itself, I would urge you to stop off here for something light to eat in a relaxing setting. The service is good & the food is tasty. They also have a lovely shop full of yummies and lovely soaps etc. We've been a few times before but, being... More

So this time I got to bring my beloved here for brekky. Bless him, he thought I'd like a few days skiing whilst he did important stuff with men in suits. Of course the same smiley faces were there to greet me (yay!) and the Croque Monsieur was as fabulous as ever. The previous day had seen me relieve the... More

We popped in for afternoon tea and had to return after looking at the breakfast menu. The kids loved it - one raved about his scrambled eggs with bacon and the other was totally enraptured by his waffles. My Eggs Benedict were very good but maybe a little heavy on the hollandaise. Perfectly poached eggs though! My wife chose the... More
