Great place for lunch/coffee

Great central location. Lovely display of homemade cakes and food. So difficult to know what to choose. Lovely rural, rustic atmosphere. Reasonably priced. Staff friendly.

Perfectly ok, nice vegetables, but the beef stew was a little tough. My wife. however, really liked her meal. The environs were pleasant and the lady who served us very helpful

Grabbed an outside table for a coffee and a snack. Everything available was freshly baked and the snow capped mountain backdrop tops of a friendly experience. Cheese scones amazing!

The cafe looked welcoming from outside. There was seating outside but as it was windy we decided to take a table inside, in front of the large windows of the cafe. The staff was sweet and pleasant. We had coffee and one of the most brilliant coffee and hazelnut brownie that I have ever had. I will definitely recommend this... More

Visited Glenorchy on ANZAC Day. Our first choice Cafe was closed for the day and everyone seemed to be at the Glenorchy Lodge so we joined them. The coffees were good, the food was tasty but they struggled with getting it heated right probably with all the rush. Had to ask for several things to be reheated. The trip out... More

Thanks for coming in and visiting with us on ANZAC Day. It was a very busy day up here and we're sorry if we had our hands full at the time, so we appreciate all the more that you wrote to let us know you still had a good experience. We're open all winter so do come back up again... More

We had lunch in this beautiful little town and were pleasantly surprised. I had blue eyed cod, salad and chips and it was really tasty for just under $20. The cakes and slices looked wonderful. The restaurant has beautiful views and you can sit inside or outside. The staff were attentive and friendly. If you're staying in Queenstown it's well... More

We walked in to the Glenorchy Lodge Cafe after done the rounds of the other few cafés in the Main Street, The food here actually looked wholesome and very appealing to the eye, so glad we waited and came here. The savoury scone was as good as I make myself, very tasty with bacon, herbs, spices, capsicum, cheese and more.... More

We're happy to keep up with the baking! It's one of our favourite things and we encourage our chefs to get creative so there'll always be the old favourites and then some new things when you come to visit, too. Do come back again...we'll make sure to let our scone chef know that they were just right! More
