With a Scandinavian-inspired fit out to match the mountains and adventures to be had in Wānaka, you'll quickly understand why this coffee and eatery’s tagline is ‘Gather, feast, stay a while.’

The modern space features light wood finishes and polished concrete floors, and stands proudly as a large and open a-frame, showing off views of the lake and township through expansive windows. A welcoming spot in all four seasons, there’s an open fire to gather near during the winter months, as well as outdoor seating options when you’re ready to soak up the sun. The relaxed feel makes this a perfect venue to sit back and stay a while, so feel free to bring a book, your computer, or just a few good friends to chat away with. 

The coffee is supplied by Flight, and includes filter and cold brew options alongside delicious espresso. For those looking for a more calming, cosy beverage, they also serve up Webster's Organic Tea in a myriad of flavours. 

The cabinet features sweet and savoury options with an emphasis on healthy snacks, thanks to plenty of raw treats. If you're still not satisfied, their all day menu has you covered with a mix of fresh, savoury breakfast options, like the Green Breaky Bowl (featuring fresh ingredients like halloumi, seeded avocado and massaged kale, among others) or Shakshuka (poached eggs served atop curry tomato & capsicum sauce, butter beans and pesto, topped with Raglan coconut yoghurt or housemate labneh), to tried-and-true classics like a Reuben or grilled cheese.
