This cafe is a good choice for a cafe lunch. There is a menu and lots of cabinet food. It all looks tasty. The service is quick and the coffee good and strong. We had a ham and cheese toastie (plenty of ham and good quality bread) and a fritter stack. They don’t have free wi-fi and say instead you should actually talk, and at busy times they won’t do menu substitutions. How refreshing on both counts. Too many diners are far too picky. Chefs put dishes together in a particular way for a reason. If you don’t like it, go somewhere else.

We stumbled across this amazing cafe in Wanaka!

There was a lovely buzz and the food smelt great!

We had bacon and eggs and boy this did not disappoint!

The coffee was good and the service fast and helpful.

This is a hidden gem on the high street - the sandwiches looked to die for and for a reasonable price!

Highly recommend !

Had a berry smoothie and almond mocha here. Also tried their carrot cake.

All excellent. Ritual offers indoor and outdoor seating has a bathroom.

Be warned this place is extremely popular. Probably because it’s food and coffee is so good. However , they serve you reasonably quickly. They have a take away number system and a sit down system and it works well.

Wish they had more seating.

I've been there with friends after a longer drive and enjoyed the salad with chicken, a flat white and rhubarb cake afterwards. All very delicious. The staff was very friendly. Would definitely come back if in the neighborhood

Lots of people wanting a coffee on boxing day. Lots of people working hard to provide a good service. A nice friendly place
