Great Fish and Chips

We popped into this cafe for a quick lunch. We choose the fish and chips. Very tasty, lovely staff and a great view of Lake Te Anau. Highly recommended

Nice setting, grab an outdoor table with great views across the lake beware of the seagulls which swoop as soon as someone leaves a table and hasn't cleared their food, quite amusing ! Nice cakes and food probably not the best in town but OK particularly as you are there for the view.

Quick and basic service, quick and basic food, nothing wrong with that, The reason we went here was that it is the only cafe on the lake.

Te Anau is definitely the middle stop enroute between queenstown and Milford sound. This cafe is near the lake and kitty corner to the real journey travel agent, almost all the tours will stop by at this cafe, but try to avoid! The coffee is so bitter and it's poorly brewed. The chocolate croissant is stone cold although it's placed... More

This was a perfectly fine cafe with a wide range of food choices. The food was hot and the cafe was warm (on a freezing day) with a nice view of the lake.

Everything we ordered was pretty much average. The smoothie and iced coffee was watery, the ice cream came on an old and soggy cone. Service was nothing special

If your looking for a quick place to grab a bite, a drink, and surf the net for free, look no further than the Pop-In Cafe. In a town with a general lack of free Wi-Fi options, we found Pop-In a great resting place to crash for 30 minutes before dashing out again for more great Fiordland scenery. Note this... More
