Good selection of food, coffee & drinks. With beaut looking cakes whispering "pick me". Friendly staff with prompt service. Owner Karl runs a top cafe with a good vibe. Will definitely drop in again to refuel when next down in Ohakune :-) G & M

Stopped in for a two glasses of mulled wine in the afternoon . They were nice and sweet and provided the heat we wanted could have been spiced a bit more but tasty non the less .

Pretty disappointed, no fried or scrambled eggs, just poached! No avocado. Not serving the specials written on the specials board. Was told "wait half an hour and the lunch menu will be available" Ordered an iced chocolate and half of it was cream, and it cost $7.50! The service was pretty fast though, so that's great, especially as we were... More

Our Family have eaten often at Mountain Rocks Cafe. The food is substantial and reliable. Suitable for family Groups or groups of friends or simply couples, this not fancy dining, this is good food, a good bar, reliable hours. A sports bar is separate but available for the Big Games or Olympics or just your Saturday night out.

Great panini, savoury muffin barely warmed, coffee and chai average. Very cheery service and nice sitting outside in sun.

Had breakfast there with wife and 2y old kid. The staff were very friendly and welcoming, the coffee was ok, and the pancakes (with panfried banana) were rrrrrreaally yummy! The atmosphere was nice, and I think I had every song that played on a rock mix tape back in the 90s! ;)

Like most places in the "Kune" they do trick out their spaces well, this place gives you the feel that you are next to the mountain. Service was quick and friendly. We had the Eggs Bennie breakfast which was pretty average. You got what the menu said but a classic Eggs bennie (in my mind) should show a bit of... More

If you want a quick meal with the kids in tow then this is the place in Ohakune. We dined there for breakfast and dinner. Food came quick and service was great. Food is good for your typical cafe/bar food.

My Family and I ate here 3 times in as many days, one breakfast, lunch and dinner. The atmosphere is rustic - warm and inviting. The food is honest home style comfort food that complemented the cool wet weather. I had bowl of seafood chowder which tasted like the best meal on earth after a morning of hiking Mt. Ruapehu...
