We have always visited tie Log Cabin whenever we have visited Hanmer as the blue cod and chips are brilliant, so we were worried when we heard it had changed owners, but she must have taught them well, as it was equally as good and the take aways were piping hot. The most reasonably priced cafe in New Zealand.

During the earthquake with no power on a wet & cold afternoon we went into town, more to turn the car heater on to get warm (we were in a caravan) when we noticed the Log Cabin was advertising "Come in & keep warm" & that's what we did. The log burner was wonderful. We asked if there was coffee,... More

I popped in to grab a bite to eat before heading home to Christchurch. I got a Ham, Cheese and Pineapple toasted sandwich -it was $8.00 but was well worth it. It was made with thick grainy bread and had plenty of cheese and fillings. Delicious taste and came out in a timely manner :)

Lovely place that is nicely decorated and the staff was friendly and helpful. The food we had was average, but good and the location was beautiful...worth stopping for that alone!

It was time for tea so ducked in for a toasted sandwich and some fried chicken. The chicken was barely warm, the coating was hard and extremely salty. It took nearly 40 minutes for them to work out that they had lost my wife's toastie and the woman who seemed to be in charge was busy snapping at staff and... More

The service was very good and the food was awesome! The milkshakes are the best i have ever had. The pricing was as expected for a dairy/restaurant hybrid.

Love this place always warm and welcoming. Sometimes there a little bit of wait for food due busy times of year (eg school holidays) but is totally worth it as the food I've had is always great and well priced. I go there every time I'm in hanmer springs

Really pleased with the service and excellent food. We had originally wanted to order blue cod, but none was available so we bought groper. When the fish and chips had been cooked the owner ( or what appeared to be the owner) came out and personally delivered our fish and chips. She told us she had given us an extra... More
