“Ok lunch, good coffee, great service and atmosphere.”
Reviewed July 17, 2014 via mobile

Wife and I visited. She had chai latte and I had a small flat white. She loved hers.

For lunch I had the original beef burger. Big feed. I love my burgers but annoying when I have to use a knife and fork to eat it. Nothing special and burger pattie was quite plain and dry.

Mrs really liked her nachos. Quite a different choice and enjoyed the pumpkin.

Very nice atmosphere and great customer service. Would go back.

Rest your cold, snowy feet by the cozy fire and enjoy a great coffee! This is definitely a great place for regulars or travelers passing through.

“Best real food in Ohakune”
Reviewed July 4, 2014

We've been coming to Ohakune for nearly 10 years and food has always been a little hit and miss.
OCR was always our go to for Eggs Bene (the best in NZ), came for lunch today and it's lived up to expectations.... The Vege Nachos and Chicken Salad (make sure you ask for OCR sauce) were just sensational. Looks like the new go to for Breakfast and Lunch!

“Don't let the look from outside stop you from going in”
Reviewed June 3, 2014

From the outside, OCR cafe looks just like an old house, and we didn't expect too much. But then we did our homework and read the reviews, so we knew it couldn't be bad. The reviews helped us decide to give them a try and have dinner there.

The reception was very friendly. We were seated quickly (close to the fireplace, which was a bonus on a cold night). Although they were fairly busy, we didn't wait long for our food to arrive.

Our food was excellent quality and really tasty. Like all restaurants, the wines are expensive (compared to what a bottle costs in the liquor store) but not more so than in comparable restaurants.

While the food was excellent, the friendliness of the two ladies who worked there on that particular night made the experience complete.

We will definitely eat at OCR every time we re-visit Ohakune.
