A quiet little cafe on main street downtown Wanaka. The area doubles as a bustling coffee bar in the morning turning into light bar at night. A lot of outdoor seating and a winebar upstairs at night.

The real reason I choose to review this place is because they are the only bar in the area that has all three Wanaka Beerworks brews on tap. Also its also one of the few places where most tourists have to step out of there comfort zone because these are also the only three beers on tap, so there is much discussion about the beer and brewing in general.

As for my experience I sat outside and enjoyed a pint of Tall Black and enjoyed the night. I experienced decent service but then again I was still a little ripe from being dunked in Lake Wanaka so I will not hold it against them. But at least they were understanding and they served me. On my two days here, the place was always pack and everyone appeared to be having a good time. Worth the walk down the block.
