“Great cabinet food”
Reviewed October 20, 2012

Lago has been a consistently good coffee stop for several years. It also has one of the best selections of cabinet food in Wanaka. The salads are especially tasty.

“Disappointing”
Reviewed October 10, 2012

For some reason, we had fond memories of Lago, but our return visit was disappointing. The coffee was awful - weak, insipid and unpleasant. The cafe looks grubby and would benefit from a really good clean. The staff are not unpleasant, but just don't look thrilled to be at work. Given the range of cafes at Wanaka and the choice people have, Lago needs to lift its game.

“Great coffee”
Reviewed April 27, 2012

Stop in for a muffin and great coffee. I'm sure that the rest of the food is just as good too but hey it was morning coffee time.
