Met at Urban Grind early evening for their 2 for 1 pizzas. These were large, delicious & perfectly made. The bases were crispy & a full menu range of toppings. The cafe was full with locals & visitors alike & had a fun buzz. If pizza is not for you there is a range of other menu options. Staff were... More

Stopped for a quick bite en route from Queenstown to Franz Josef Glacier. Lovely cafe. Smoothies were excellent, as was the mixed salami pizza.

My wife and I have been here several times as we live locally and although the food is interesting and good, we have always been disappointed by the cake selection. Maybe it's not their thing, but mid-morning coffee and cake is always popular. However, on our last visit, we found the staff to be totally overpowering. We'd taken two steps... More

Went for lunch with a group. One gripe is that the cafe will only allow one account per table. Good coffee and a wide selection of cabinet food cakes and sweets. The mains were nice but almost a bit too try hardish- e.g. The smokes salmon salad. Service was attentive mainly from travelers to NZ. Would revisit as my first... More

Went here twice and while we didn't eat the food looked great. Coffee is very good and this morning we had hot chocolate...delicious and came with a big stick of choccy. Staff friendly and professional. Looks to be popular with the locals (always a good sign).

We grabbed a quick coffee on the way out of Wanaka & this cafe was absolutely packed. It seemed to be the popular place in town. Even though we didn't eat, they had a great menu and a nice array of treats in the display cabinet. The staff were very friendly & nice. I would recommend the coffee!
