With so many amazing cafes and restaurants in Wanaka serving delicious food and even more delicious coffee and drinks, we thought we would start to put some Release Wanaka Top 5’s together over the next few months for Coffee, Breakfast, Morning Tea, Lunch, Afternoon Tea, Cocktails and Dinner!
Keep an eye out in the coming weeks for more Top 5’s but firstly – COFFEE!
As decided by the Release Wanaka Team, in no particular order:
1/ Fedeli – Tucked away down an alleyway in the centre on Wanaka, sits this fantastic café offering rich, tasty coffee in funky surroundings. Sit in peace in the sheltered courtyard or grab a “Keep Cup” (which they sell) and head down to the lakefront to enjoy the view.

2/ The Little Black Caravan – In a small industrial area on the outskirts of Wanaka, sits a cute little caravan selling organic, fair trade coffee. Sit and relax on site listening to some great tunes or get a takeaway (they too, sell “Keep Cups”) and pick a spot to indulge in the delicious coffee.
3/ Alchemy – Across the road from the lake with plenty of seating inside and out, Alchemy offers a relaxed setting to enjoy a great cup of coffee. There are sofas to chill out on and read the newspaper and an open fire for those cold, wintery days.

4/ Relishes – A long-standing restaurant in Wanaka, Relishes always produces a good, strong coffee. Located in the centre of town, it is a quick, easy coffee fix with parking out front and across the road from the lake.
5/ Urban Grind – A great place to go in a group or as a family as there is plenty of space. The coffee is great and if you order a Mocha you will get a huge piece of chocolate on the side, coffee and chocolate craving knocked on the head in one!
