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.

We went 3 times to this cafe in a matter of 3 days. They use fresh ingredients and straight from farm to table. The food was light and perfectly flavoured. Special mention got roasted tomato soup and carrot cake. The ambience was so positive and...fresh. A must go for anybody in Wānaka. Being vegetarian had enough of choices.More

Wonderful! Highly recommended for everyone and anyone, including gluten free and celiac. They have a separate fryer, totally understand the importance of cross contamination. And the food is DELICIOUS! Service was lovely, super accommodating to where we wanted to sit. The food came out in...a good time without being too fast to have been properly cooked - tasted fresh and was simple but beautifully presented.More

Popped by for breakfast after reading the reviews here and I must say they do not disappoint. The food is served warm, the staff are friendly, and they even told you that food will be 10-15mins later due to high number of orders. Lovely place,...we will come againMore

Nice cafe. Had read a previous menu online and fancied a breakfast burrito but not on the menu now. I ordered the breakfast with poached eggs and a coffee. Excellent coffee. Good breakfast except the addition of a sweet relish . The potato hash was...great and the sausage good quality . Pleasant staff and quick serviceMore

We stopped here for lunch after a rainy walk up and around Mt Iron. Had the seafood chowder (best I've ever had) and Thai pumpkin soup and both were great! Decent amount of bread came with. Great service, friendly staff.

Great menu, friendly staff and were able to provide a range of reative alternatives during the egg shortages. I had Kumara and corn fritters and others had big breakfast and some excellent savoury scones. All delicious. Highly recommend

We both had eggs any style. Chose scrambled and we're not sure how it turned out so small. Looked like a one egg scramble. Very disappointed! The coffee was OK. Service limited but it is an 'order at counter' place so that was OK. The...staff were friendly. We have been here before but today seemed a shadow of our former experience and we won't be back during this trip.More

2 mornings for breakfast. Eggs Benedict + eggs on toast with avocado ...gorgeous Staff were super friendly and efficient (although assumed you know that outside sitting is not table service). 2nd morning impacted, from poached egg to scrambled egg thanks to national egg situation. Not...the fault of restaurant. Everything was so nice, relaxing and such a pleasant start to the day.More
