“Everything is great but I wish thay would use different coffee”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 28, 2014

Great choice of meals and cakes. Everything is cooked with good quality ingredients. This place is good for breakfast, lunch, afternoon tea or dinner. I keep on coming back in spite of the fact that their coffee is below average.

“Worst Service in Wanaka”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 25, 2014

This was our second trip to this Cafe, which has an attractive design, and layout. However the service we received the first time was poor, and the second time was terrible. They are incredibly slow, ignore new customers. There is no rule as to whether you order at the counter, or sitting down. Having sat for about 10 minutes in a prominent table, we asked should we order at the counter, and were told now we can come to you, but you have to let us know you are here....??? That was when there was a less than full cafe, with waitresses cleaning forks?? Seems to be very badly managed with waitresses who seem to big for their boots. A real pity, as the food was good, and the place has lots of potential. I think they need a Gordon Ramsey overhaul.

“Great Coffee”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 22, 2014 via mobile

We have been here many times when visiting Wanaka. Coffee is always great and decor is modern. Hard services mean if it is busy it is very noisy so mornings are best.

“Best coffee”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 16, 2014

What a top spot Urban Grind is. Our family trooped into this hipster joint by accident on a public holiday and were very happy we did. Excellent coffee, good food served all day and fast service. There a very slick bar upstairs which we didnt try but is obviously popular at night. The owner started this joint as a hobby and now runs a very successful business which is a favourite amongst the locals.
