“Alway consistantly good!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 11, 2013 via mobile

As a wanaka local this is always where we go for excellent food, coffee, and service.
Always consistant! Other cafes are a gamble on the day but Gusto is always good.
Keep doing what you're doing Gusto!

“Believe everything you hear about this place, it's the best in Wanaka hands down for Food / Coffee / Service / Value (5/5)”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 4, 2013 via mobile

I can't say enough good things about Cafe Gusto!! Other places in Wanaka say they have the best this & that, whereas Cafe Gusto unassumingly delivers the best in every category. We went for breakfast & had 2 very good dishes (breakfast burrito & salmon & potato rosti), as well as the best coffee I've had anywhere in either Queenstown or Wanaka. The staff were friendly & helpful, the kitchen were accomodating of our daughters food allergies, & they didn't charge us full price for one of our coffees because we brought our own milk - take note "Ritual" this is what's supposed to happen!
Can't wait to go back again

“Nice lunch - great coffee!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 3, 2013

I had lunch at Cafe Gusto before catching a movie at Ruby's and really enjoyed it. My pasta was really nice and the coffee was seriously good. There's a great atmosphere with a blend of locals and tourists. Being at the corner of Lakeside Road and Ardmore up on that little hill, Cafe Gusto can be proud of the lake views it's got - amazing!

The staff were very nice and make sure you get a seat outside to enjoy the view!

“Outstanding!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 1, 2013

Cafe Gusto is one of those rare cafes that is constantly filled with both locals and visitors to Wanaka. Excellent coffee, consistantly great food, cakes to die for and lovely happy staff - what more could you want? Cosy environment inside with lake views outside, too. If you visit only one cafe in Wanaka fhen make Gusto that choice.

“Bestes Frühstück in Neuseeland”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 25, 2013

Everyone who stopps in Wanaka - and everyone who is in New Zealand should stop in Hanaka - should have at least one time breakfast at Cafe Gusto. The coffee tastes more than European Coffee which means not that bitter than in other cafes and the poached eggs are amazing, never ever had better poached eggs!

Like everywhere it's not that cheap but it's worth the money.
