Pleasantly surprised.

Absolutely loved the bluecod and chips on the first visit. Not so good the second visit but still good. Friendly staff and nice food selection. Don't judge a book by it's cover - we were pleasantly surprised.

Used to frequent here all the time on trips to Te Anau. The glass views great of the lake but menu choices have changed over to less than kiwi choices, lots of fried food, servery cluttered and disorganised.

We dropped into this cafe for breakfast before departing Te Anau, and were surprised to find it run by Japanese - pleasantly surprised as I got to speak Japanese (I lived there for many years). My husband and daughter had shoyu ramen and found the taste very authentic.

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.
