“Always good.....always!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 28, 2013

Have eaten here many times as a visitor to Wanaka. It is always good: the service, the food, the atmosphere.

I like the breakfasts: I like the chowder: I like the coffee. One need not worry about the eating experience.

I am happy to recommend Ritual to anyone visiting Wanaka. The locals already know this...!

“Great bagels”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 30, 2013

We needed a quick bite one day and found this cafe. VERY busy but this created a nice buzz. Staff were friendly and we were surpized by how well presented our bagel's were- cinnamon raisin with cream cheese and jam. And tasty too. We are not coffee drinkers- but appreciated the ability to get our own water and just sit back and enjoy the bagels and the ambience.
