Enjoy unsurpassed views of Mt Cook and Mt Tasman whilst dining at our contemporary style café at the entrance to the Lake Matheson Walkway. Open 7 days from 8am for breakfast, brunch and lunch, and open for dinner in peak summer season. Comfortable indoor seating and expansive deck area. Adjacent to the cafe is the ReflectioNZ Gifts and Gallery offering a range of high quality Kiwiana products, clothing and souvenirs. Lake Matheson is one of New Zealand's most scenic icons. Situated on the West Coast of the South Island, in the heart of Glacier Country and Westland National Park, the Lake Matheson walk is a must do attraction for all visitors to Fox Glacier & Franz Josef Glacier. 'Picture Perfect' reflections of New Zealand's highest peaks Mt Cook & Mt Tasman can be captured in the dark waters of this ancient lake formed by the retreat of the Fox Glacier. A trip to Lake Matheson is simply not complete without a visit to Matheson Cafe and ReflectioNZ Gifts and Gallery.

Cafe with lovely views. Good for light snack or proper lunch. They start at 8am so you can come in for some breakfast before the walk. The chicken and bacon pie was nice and come with salad for $12.90. Very nice cafe with good food...More
We were told this is the best restaurant in town. What the other 8 were like I don’t know. It serves well cooked imaginative cuisine. Even the rye bread was cooked on the premises. The staff are pleasant and efficient but the ‘piece de resistance’...More
