“Cheese Ball!”
Reviewed January 2, 2013

I stopped here as it was close to where I was staying and I wanted something quick and easy for lunch. I got the 'cheese ball' which was served with warm bread. I've never had anything like it, it was delicious! It's soft cheese (not sure what cheese, probably a mix) rolled in seeds & nuts and served with wonderful bread which you smear the cheese on. That with a wonderful flat white coffee was the best lunch I've had in a while although I could only eat half of it!

“Tapas”
Reviewed November 5, 2012

Tapas New Zealand style - awesome, but don't over order as they're bigger than fancy restaurants in Auckland. Always great service and food with a relaxed alternative style

“Lots of competition but a good place for coffee”
Reviewed October 18, 2012

There is plenty of choice for a good coffee in Wanaka nowadays but The Creek is reliable with friendly staff and a good choice of interesting food (with a menu that changes fairly frequently). The place is popular with locals which tells you something, and it can be crowded at times. The open fire is welcome in winter and the outdoor seating area is wonderful in the summer months.

“Great Location, Awesome Staff & Coffee”
Reviewed October 10, 2012

Ample seating on deck next to Bullock Creek, space inside with great fire place, cool tunes, impressive cabinet food selection and a la carte meals plus blackboard specials, licensed bar, and great coffee. Stacy and his crew can take care of your needs for breakfast, lunch or dinner. You are greeted with a smile and made to feel welcome, every time!
