Best cafe in town!

Every time I pass through Tekapo I stop here for a cup of tea and a bite to eat. The atmosphere is relaxed, decor is a perfect country chic and the staff are consistently friendly and attentive. Don't be fooled by the lunch menu outside that says they stop serving lunch at 2.30pm, there's still a... read more

Very very expensive for breakfast! Spent $60 on two coffees, two serves of eggs Benedict. Cost $3 for a side of mushrooms, when it came out there were two mushrooms, when we asked the staff if they could put a couple more on the plate considering we paid $3 extra for it we were told "no that is all that...

The muffins, bars and prepared breakfasts are all very good and the coffee is excellent. Service is very friendly and the takeaway options are plentiful.

Considering the other reviews and their stated homemade goods, it was very disappointing. It cost $60 for two serves of eggs Benedict and 2 coffees! We had ordered a side of mushrooms which was $3 but was only given 2 mushrooms and despite asking for more, considering the price, we were told there was nothing they could do and the... More

Run 77 cafe in Lake Tekapo is situated on the main town strip. It has a cute, rustic feel that allows for either in or outside seating. The service was prompt but sterile in nature. The menu has the usual favorites with a local twist. The coffee was nice and the meal was great. Want a nice brekky? Run 77... More

Fantastic food and coffee. We had a substantial breakfast and brought lunch to go. Pity the barrista was in a grumpy mood - but she still made good coffee.

If you are travelling through Lake Tekapo and feel like a good coffee, I highly recommend Run 77. The fruit scone was also good.

I was grateful this café was there so that I could grab a sandwich to go, as we had a long drive ahead of us. However, they didn't have many vegetarian options, and my sandwich was literally just cheese and tomatoes. Service and ambience were average. Definitely a lot better than having to resort to unhealthy fast food or pre-packaged... More

We stopped at here, looked like a nice cafe and bought the most expensive pie I've ever bought, only because I was very hungry and in a bit of a hurry. If I hadn't have been down the road a way I would have taken it back. It was supposed to be a mince pie, but it was very, very... More

greeted by friendly easy going staff, seated out side, had a lovely breakfast with coffees. Fast and friendly service. Have seen bigger portions in my time but that wouldn't stop us from returning, because in general it ticked all the box's. Yum!
