Release Wanaka’s Top 5 – Morning Tea
Continuing on from our Top 5 – Breakfast locations, we move to ‘Morning Tea’. Morning Tea, Elevenses, Smoko…..whatever you want to call it, we all need something to get us through to lunchtime, whether it is savoury or sweet!
Pembroke Patisserie has been around for a while suppling local businesses with their delicious pastries and cakes as well as been a regular at the local market. Recently they opened their doors in Albert Town and now offer all their sweet treats in stylish surroundings with delicious coffee too.
If you would like a relaxing morning stroll along the lake front, then park up and wander west, past the lone Wanaka Tree, to Edgewater Resort. If you like freshly baked scones, then even better! Edgewater’s “Famous Scone Menu” offers both savoury and sweet scones made to order which can be finished off with a nice cup of tea.
Yes, you read that right –“Paddle Wanaka”!! Not only do they offer a fantastic morning out on the lake but they have, according to reviews, the best homemade chocolate brownie EVER. Coupled with barista made coffee in an amazing location this is a morning tea you will never forget.

Set across the road from the lake with lots of seating inside and out, Alchemy offers fresh baking daily including Gluten Free options and yummy coffee. An easy choice if you are in town and need to fuel up in between shopping and sightseeing.
5/ Soul Kitchen
Soul Kitchen has been around for a long time and has a well-established reputation to be the place to go for healthy food. Sweet treats are no exception and the perfect accompaniment to your morning coffee. With plenty of choice for gluten, dairy, or sugar-free cake, there is something for everyone in this organic shop/cafe which to us is, bliss ball heaven!
There are heaps more places to go in Wanaka, this is just a taster. They all do take way also, so if you are heading away on a trip somewhere make sure you pack that morning tea treat. For more info contact Release Wanaka.
