te-anau-olive-tree-cafe-fiordlandIn Te Anau, there are a range of relaxing cafes serving breakfast, lunch, great coffee and cake. They are all along Te Anau's main street and on a few short side streets shooting off each side, such as the Olive Tree which is on a short side street towards the lake front (on the left hand side as you are looking at the lake). The Olive Tree provides great coffee but also terrific filling lunches, with specials of the day, and packed lunches too if you are off on a Fiordland adventure! (More about the Olive Tree at the bottom of this page.)

On the same side street as the cinema can be found two more great cafes, the Wapiti Bakery, and the Sandfly. 

Manapouri also has a friendly cafe attached to the village shop.

Olive tree logoThe Olive Tree is an absolute delight. Tucked back from the main street, a stone's throw from the lake front, it has great coffee, tasty food and friendly staff. You can dine in, or take away, and it even has a secret outdoor dining area out the back. Who could ask for more? It's open 7am until late every day in the summer, and 8am until 5pm in the winter. It also does home deliveries 5.30pm to 8.30pm. They also specialise in private functions.
