As far as cafes go, the one has nothing outstanding to speak of (positive or otherwise). It's exactly what you would expect when you order bacon and eggs, or sandwiches, or coffee. It's neither delicious nor disgusting. At $20++ a pop, you might want to make your own breakfast instead, though.

Have been eating lunches/breakfast at Gusto for many years and I have never had a bad meal. Their soups are the best and their coffee is always nice and strong (that is how I like mine).

After reading positive reviews on TripAdvisor we went to Gusto with high expectations. Our lunch was pleasant except for the soup of the day which was described as cauliflower soup but tasted more like blue cheese soup. We had to get our money back on that one.

I'm a regular at Gusto. Food is always yummy and consistently good. So popular that you have to fight for a seat. Yummy food to take away as well.

The food and coffee at Gusto are so consistently good we do eat here at least once a week. I have never been disappointed by breakfast whatever I order. The Gusto Salad is delicious and their blackboard specials never disappoint.

I went there for lunch and I ordered the Turkish platter which was nice, the outdoor dining area of this attractive cafe is lovely on a sunny day even on a busy interaction.

We enjoyed Cafe Gusto last time we were in Wanaka so decided to return, this time for breakfast. We were not disappointed as again Cafe Gusto served great food, good coffee and all with friendly service. Lots of interesting menu options, we will come back here again!
