We grabbed lunch at the Olive Tree en route from Milford to Queenstown. We had the sharing platter which was excellent value and just perfect for a quick lunch in the sunshine. There is a wide and interesting range of food available from full meals...More

Set back from the high street this is well worth a visit. Lovely soup and sandwiches and a pleasant feel to the place

Whilst shopping in Te Anau popped in for coffee and found the selection of cakes was very good. Prices were also very good and the ambience was typical for NZ.

We bought two coffees that were very tasty. Unfortunately they have picked up the American bad habit of taking your order and writing your name on a cup. Then they take every body else's order and do the same. If I order coffee serve me...More

I have to confess we didn't have time to actually eat here, but as you can see in the attached photos, the place has a sense of humour! I suppose kiwis flying is as fanciful as reindeer doing so.

Only short coming is that there are only a couple exceptional tables. Can usually reserve by 2 pm same day to get the far front corner or window table.The lamb shanks and dinner salads are wonderful.

Nice cafe very friendly easy going staff excellent coffee and toast. WIFI was helpful as it seems tone getting rare at Motels, if you are touring you should not go past this cafe even if you just need a little relaxation time.

Tucked out of the way this was a great find for a fabulous lunch. Great food, great staff. No problems about sharing a course, even brought extra cutlery. UK restaurants should take note! Thankyou

We stumbled upon this lovely place to eat on our second night in Te Anau and despite its unassuming exterior, it was a delightful gem. The shared lamb platter was awesome and in fact was the best lamb dish we had during our 7 weeks...More

A venue with a good ambiance, excellent, fresh decaf coffee and seemingly reliably good food. We have been for both morning coffee and dinner, and will happily go back tomorrow to try their breakfast. Staff are good, though a little slow to serve.
