Release Wanaka’s Top 5 - Breakfast

Next on Release Wanaka’s Top 5 is ‘Breakfast’. A lot of people believe that this is the most important meal of the day and it can be the most delicious. Whether you are after savoury or sweet, breakfast menus around Wanaka offer some amazingly tasty meals to get you ready for your day exploring.

As decided by the Release Wanaka Team, in no particular order:

1/ Kai Whaka Pai – Set on the corner of Helwick and Ardmore Street in the centre of Wanaka sits a local legend. Kai has been serving locals and holiday makers for years and has a fantastic location across from the lake. Open at 7am it is a great place to kick start your morning with a hearty breakfast…..try the pancakes they are divine!

2/ Federal Diner – Down an alleyway in the centre of Wanaka (yes, it is related to Fedeli), lives Federal Diner. A cool café serving delicious food all day long. Breakfast starts at 7am for all you early risers and continues until 3pm. A favourite dish for us is the “Hawea Flat” -Spinach, Mushrooms, Roasted Tomato and Halloumi served on a Polenta Cake, Yum!

3/ Alchemy – For a big breakfast option head to Alchemy. They serve the ‘Full Breakfast Grill’ from 8am – 4pm as well as some healthy alternatives such as the ‘Black Rice Pudding with fruit’, Black rice with grilled banana, orange segments, ginger, lemon grass + coconut yoghurt served Hot or Cold. 

4/ Ritual – On the main street in Wanaka, Ritual Café is a real local favourite with a fantastic selection of food. A cabinet full of choices plus a breakfast menu and blackboard and it’s where Reece Witherspoon went to hang-out while she was filming "A Wrinkle in Time"!

5/ The Dripping Bowl – If you are after a healthy alternative to the usual breakfast items then head to The Dripping Bowl on Brownston Street, one of the many food trucks that have appeared in Wanaka. The Dripping Bowl serves super healthy porridge and smoothie bowls with all the trimmings.

The team at Release Wanaka have spoken......now you to need to go out and explore the breakfast culture of Wanaka, New Zealand. 

If on the other hand you would rather stay in your Release Wanaka Luxury Holiday Rental Home, then we can organise for breakfast to be delivered to you OR a private chef to pop by and create whatever you feel like, ask our Wanaka Fixer for more information.
