I've been here for breakfast a few times and each time it has been well cooked and very tasty. The staff are always very friendly too.

Awesome location but ordered a coffee after some wait it came out but it was only warm, not hot how a coffee should be. Would not go back again, for $5 coffee it for sure was not very big.

In town for the Festival of Colour. Found this cute cafe on the lake. Nice food, reasonable prices for New Zealand and friendly service. Nothing special but nothing terrible.

We were served very quickly and easily, plus the food was OK and the wait staff helpful. A great place to get a light bite in Wanaka.

Very slow service and below average food. It wasn't busy and there were plenty of staff milling about - and yet we waited 45 minutes for a very simple order.

They brew their own Kombucha!!! Free range eggs! Free wifi! Great seating with views of the lake. Love this place. I had the eggs bene on a potato rosti with salmon and grilled seasonal veggies. Yum! Good looking lunch specials too.

Cafe Lago has fed us innumerable times over the ski season, as it does quick high quality cafe food with tasty coffee and a smile. Nothing too complex, but always cooked well.
