Good food. A little expensive, but good quality! Lots of baked goods. I couldn't choose one muffin, so took a few for the road! Nice people, but that's not saying much as most Kiwis are friendly.

We have had morning teas and lunch here over the last 7 years or so which I guess can speak for itself. There is a lovely fire which you can look at even if you can't get the closest table - the place is popular. The service is good and quick without the staff "hanging around asking if everything is...

The Urban grind is a modern cafe with a wide range of food in the display cabinet and also on the menu. The hot chocolate comes with a bar of chocolate on the top, just wonderful, but not so good for the waist line.

9 of us hit the cafe for a late breakfast. Service was efficient (they made sure the 3 young kids got their drinks and food first, for which we were all eternally grateful!) A good selection of food - hot, cold, sweet, savoury, and a lovely atmosphere. Would definitely visit again next time.

Went for breakfast with family and met up with a friend. The location was central to Wanaka, the place was welcoming and the staff were cheery and friendly. The food choice was good and we enjoyed what we ordered. Even our 5 year old and 1 year old enjoyed it.

Stopped here for breakfast, after being let down by another cafe in the area. They could not have been more accomadating and helpful. Great coffee and good food, plenty of choice for everyone, the vegeteraian Monkey was a hit. Would definately return and have already recommended it to others!

We ordered a coffee and cake early one morning and while the cafe was fairly busy, we waited 25 minutes for our coffee, while the cake was delivered to our table in less than 2 minutes. Coffee was nice when it arrived but it would have been nice to have both coffee and cake together.

We ate our breakfasts here one late morning. The food was very tasty, well presented and portions were generous. The pancakes were especially tasty and well presented. Centrally located in Wanaka in beautiful surroundings and scenery in the area. The service was fast and staff were friendly.

If I were a local, I'd grab my breakfast and coffee at the Cheeky Monkey! It has a nice spacious atmosphere with good food that is not too pretentious!
