The pizzas were good but other than that the menu was quite small and didn't have much to choose from if you didn't want pizza. Nice setting and good location but a bit more variety outside of pizzas would be good

This place is great for all types of dinning. Yummy cabinet food, & heaps of delicious menu options. The Japanese Pancake is pretty darn good! Worth going there just for that! Chocolate frappes are amazing to! Staff are always friendly & everything is really reasonable. Highly worth a visit!

Recent visit-had pizzas and the baked cheesecake. The pizzas were really very good-had thin bases and plenty of topping with excellent flavours ( the smoked aubergine added to the taste on the vegetarian pizza). The baked cheesecake was to die for (not too sweet and the spiced blueberries complimented the flavour). The staff were great- they have fun as well... More

Ate here 3 times and the food, coffee and service was amazing each time. Roti roll and Japanese omelette were the highlights for breakfast.

We have been here before with a group of 8. Food and service was still good - and the chef is still there which is always a good sign. Nice wine and a nice snack

This is a fun place to spend time with an atmosphere that suited us. Attentive friendly staff, generally busy but plenty of space between tables. A small outdoor area is available when the weather is OK.Food and coffee were good.

The Urban Grind is opposite the Wanaka Hotel where we were staying, so we ducked in for breakfast. Its a long skinny place, with nice outdoor area at front and another at back. Food and service were as you would expect. Im a long black drinker and they did a good one. Breakfasts were well presented and tasty.

We just arrived at Wanaka and wanted to have lunch outside. The cafes by the water were so crowded and busy so we strolled up the hill and found this lovely spot. They have a great outdoors patio in the back. We had 2 wonderful servers. They gave us recommendations on what to do in town. The Margherita pizza with... More
