Unfortunately decided to the Mountain Rocks Cafe on our way through Ohakune. My partner ordered something from the cabinet while I ordered something from the menu. My partners food was received in good time however she had finished her meal before mine arrived. The staff didn't care, the food selection and quality is average at best.

We had breakfast here. It was unremarkable, though the pancakes were good. I imagine there might be other better places to get breakfast in Ohakune.

Great place no matter what season. We dined between xmas and new years. Great blackboard selection and plenty to choose from in the cabinet. We lunched the first time then brunched the second.

The good review ends there .. the serving staff couldn't care less about the way they served .. the coffee was terrible and for laffaire coffee I wonder... More

Mountain rocks serves great coffee and the staff are friendly. Food is good too. An Ohakune icon not to be missed. Always open.

Had a nice coffee and then my mood soured when my order of a chicken sub arrived. For nearly $10 I received a greasy, over heated bun with HALF a cheap schnitzel. The food was pushed to the front of the bun to make it look like it was full. When I asked the person behind the checkout if this... More

I ate a very good pizza here ! I asked for a simple margerita with caramelised onions even if it wasn't on the menu. They made me a beautiful and excellent pizza. I will be back !

This cafe was warm, friendly and liked all the quirky decor - unfortunately our meals were disappointing. They came out very quickly which was great but my husband's burger was very bland and underwhelming, my fish & chips were overly greasy and the salad a bit of mixed lettuce out of a bag - limp. Should have gone to the... More
