Very tasty breakfast.

We were passing through early on our way to Christchurch and needed a breakfast. We were not disappointed at all by Run77, which was buzzing when compared with its neighbours. The ambience was perfect, while the cooked breakfasts were delicious and composed from local produce. Service was great and... read more

I really loved the ambience of this café. The coffee was nice. Our children enjoyed playing in a little toy corner while adults could just relax and enjoy their coffee with free wifi.

I am a vegetarian. New Zealand has some vegetarian options on most menus but they are not that plentiful so i was delighted to find that the "sausage and beans" option for breakfast had a vegetarian option, fully expecting a vegetarian sausage (New Zealand has many vegetarian sausage options in the supermarkets so not an unreasonable expectation). But the sausage... More

We called in for breakfast on a very busy Sunday and we enjoyed the food. The staff were very busy but still managed to get the food out in a reasonable time and do take outs as well. A varied menu which appealed to us as we didn't all want a full breakfast. Eggs benedict went down well as did... More

Went for coffee and some muffins. So the guy at the cashier never said hello, what would you like, or anything what is common for staff working in the area. Yes, coffee was fine, but the service is super lazy. If you hate your job, why do you do it?

Went out for breakfast here. Fantastic coffee and some great cooked breakfast options. Loved the eggs benedict wth good crispy bacon - nothing worse than flabby bacon. Kids option of mini pancakes came with a cute fluffy. The full Mckenzie appreciated by teenage meat lover but other teen disappointed there was no stack of pancakes option in adult portions.

Stopped over Run 77 cafe at Lake Tekapo enroute to Christchurch to kickstart the morning drive. Quaint little rustic cafe. Quirky mix of furniture brings character to the place. Hazelnut latte was great. Bacon and tomato quiche is a to-go-for especially if you have a thing for cheese. Flavorful and well accompanied with a mildly spicy apple sauce.

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...

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 bunch of snacks available... More
