As a treat we decided to shout ourselves out to breakfast... we looked online for places but when we got there they were closed - went for a wander and found Powerhouse Cafe and we are so glad we did!!!!

The service was super friendly, really quick and the food... heavenly! They use fresh ingredients grown locally and fresh free-range local eggs which is fantastic.

We are only in Hanmer for a couple of days but will be making the effort to be back! Highly recommend!

This is a really busy little place off the main road. We went at 9.30 and the place was full. So if you were meeting people there or had a large group it honk it would be good to book. The had a few large ranked that would suit groups. The food was really interesting ....most breakfast places have the same old things. Highly recommended.

Been here before and really enjoyed! Tried it for breakfast today and although the eggs were yummy the bacon was burnt and tough, fruit salad looked old and fermenting. AND the make waiter needs to learn hand hygiene after blowing your nose you DO NOT continue serving until AFTER you wash your hands!! You didn't wash them AT ALL! Feeling sick!

My husband and I stopped in for breakfast after seeing a menu online and thinking how good the food sounded. We weren't disappointed. Lovely staff very helpful despite how busy they were with it being Saturday brunch time, and everything on the menu and in the cabinets looked so delicious it was hard to choose. We settled on lemon and oatmeal pancakes, and they were so delicious I will make the two hour drive back to Hanmer just to have them again. Yummy coffee and tumeric lattes also. So good we went back for more food and hot drinks later that day.
