Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.
Learn more about our review moderation.

This is an amazing coffee spot with quality coffee! I am a broke backpacker and I still got 3 coffees bc I have zero control around good coffee. The baristas were so kind and super speedy! Such a wonderful place and will definitely stop whenever...I’m in Wanaka! Good job ladies :) the edible cup is insanely cool too! Hot and iced coffee was great!More

What a cool little coffee shop! Set in a great location not far from the lake front, this tiny house of coffee is just what we needed every morning. 😊

Came for a quick flat white - there were only 2 people in front of us, but with only one barrista and many people ordering online through their app, it took over 25 minutes to get to order our 2 coffees. After ordering we noticed...(slightly hidden from view) that we could get an edible cup - Loved it! So we changed the order and got those for extra $. Coffee came in a light-tan coloured hard-shelled wafer a bit like an ice cream cone material. The coffee was good, but could have been hotter. Edible cup worked well - stayed hard to the last drop and then was not too sweet a snack. If you go for your coffee go when everyone else isn't having their morning break or maybe order online, if you don't want to wait a long time!More

This is an excellent spot for a perfect coffee. The team are just lovely and so engaging. Awesome service and there’s a near wee outdoor area. This was a spot I stopped at every morning and sat out front relaxing with a beautiful coffee. The...kids loved hanging out too.More

Amazing awesome staff and went here after reading all the coffee reviews, but my coffee was really not good. Ended up binning half of it sadly. Girls loved their hot chocolate though!

Got coffee twice from here in the morning. Friendly focus and also fast service with two people squeezed in there behind the bench. Great quality coffee too.

Every time I've been through Wanaka Iko the barista has made me a fantastic cappucino. For such a small shack on the side of the road, it's impressive how good the coffee is.
