“Coffee and happiness”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 15, 2012

A lovely little cafe in Wanaka that has a gret setting and great coffee. The food is excellent and an interesting variety from the normal fare. Nice to be in a cafe where the staff are happy and enjoy what they do.

“Great food and location”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 28, 2012

Ate breakfast and lunch each day - really great food, great coffee and right on the lakefront. The staff were really friendly and helpful. Highly recommend the cafe - consistently great experience and is nicely tucked away slightly from the main road in.

“Gusto Burger rated the best”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 28, 2012

My husband rated the Gusto Burger the best burger he had in NZ (he even liked it better than a similar burger he had at that famous burger joint in Queenstown!!)
I had the Gusto Salad which was delicious. The falafel and haloumi with a hint of chilli was YUM.
Kids had a salmon panini and sausages & chips. Both dishes got the thumbs up.
Nice little place with friendly staff and reasonable prices.
Definitely a place we will go back to when we are next in Wanaka.

“Great food, great coffee.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 17, 2012

We ate here for breakfast a couple of times and had take away coffees also. The all day breakfast menu is very nice with the usual breakfast dishes, but a few different ones which we tried. Lunch menu looked good also.
Coffees were really well made, and the freshly squeezed fruit juices were perfect. We sat outside and had a nice view over the lake, cant go wrong.
Service was friendly and quick.
