we go here every year for 3 weeks and Mountain Rocks is our favourite place to eat. Affordable meals and really friendly service. The owner comes in each morning to make our coffee!

We arrived between breakfast finishing but before the dinner menu. Usual choices with Nachos (large is a meal for one not a snack), chips and a selection from the cabinet. The vegetable pizza was superb and not heated in a microwave! But the ultimate was the best carrot cake I have ever had! Reasonable but cakes were a tad expensive.

This was a great way to conclude our 3-day paddle. Service with a smile; good, hot tea served with extra water and the promise of more milk if we wanted it; a good cappucino; ginger beer; and what looked to be a tasty Apple Tart with whipped cream.

Been here before, but not usually our first choice. My precise rating would be about 3.7, so am rounding it up to four stars. We called in on a Sunday afternoon for a coffee. I nearly left when I saw it was L'Affare Coffee as I have seldom had a decent cup made with this blend. Told the young man... More

I was a regular visitor here during the six weeks I house sat in Ohakune at the end of last year, mainly to watch SKY sport or for a rest before the walk back home with groceries. Staff were helpful in getting the right channel set up and I could even have sound if I sat in the 'outside' smoking... More

Went in for lunch at around midday. The menu choice is ok and we had fried mushroom and bacon and a big breakfast. Food was ok and priced about what seems to be the norm in ohakune. We got our meals and teas quickly although my order was wrong it was quickly rectified. However queuing to order was painfully slow... More
