“Fancier breakfast than we needed”
Review of Cafe Lago - CLOSED

We ordered eggs on toast and pancakes. The pancakes were incredibly fancy, and far more elaborate than we expected. While we were impressed with how beautiful the plates were, it was a bit more than we needed (and quite pricey for breakfast.) If you're looking for upscale brunch this is a good place, but not recommended for a quick eggs on toast.

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.

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.
