We were passing through Wanaka and needed a quick good lunch. We saw Cafe Gusto on the Main Street with a view of the lake. Walk up ordering and instant paying. Quick! Wonderful food and great service! Would definitely go back and suggest to my friends!

This cafe is a gem! Coffee is great, plenty of gluten free options (I loved the pulled pork wrap and the kids loved the chocolate brownie). My eldest daughter gets Eggs benedict whenever possible and she said this was by far the best she has ever had. My MIL had the salted caramel French toast and the Salted Caramel latte... More

Super friendly staff, nice atmosphere and great coffee and even really good hot honey lemon ginger drinks! What else can you wish for?! Exactly free unlimited wifi, and guess what this place has it all! Prices are average for Wanaka and I'd always come back if staying here longer. Keep it up cafe gusto!

If you desire great coffee then look no further. Gusto has consistently delivered the perfect flat white since November when we first arrived here. Actually after driving from Northland to Southland hunting for great coffee, this is one of the best we've encountered. To top it off, a diverse menu of tasty breakfast options for little nibblers or big eaters... More
