We visited the Cider House after swatting up TripAdvisor reviews and were pleased we did. Excellent service - very friendly owners with good humour and interest in the customer. As we'd had a late breakfast we were not overly hungry and went for the salads...More

We sat outside behind the glass panels with a great view of the lake. There is plenty of outside and indoor seating with an excellent play area for children. There are plenty of seats away from this area if you don't want to hear them!...More

What a delight it was to make a quick stop for a cuppa on a rare dull ( not sunny) day in Central Otago. The service was quick and very friendly. The fire was going in the corner - even though it wasn't really that...More

Stopped in for a delicious lunch. The food was really good. And the cider was refreshing. I quite enjoyed the atmosphere and would recommend a stop for anyone in the area.

We are staying at Lake Dunstan Lodge just up the road sheltering from rain. This place is nearest to our accommodation and is clean and service is good. The menu has a good range.

Stopped here for breakfast. Great service. Very obliging. Excellent Eggs Bene. Probably a 7 /10. Need to order this before 11.30am. They get too busy after that. Then, you can go over the courtyard to the Provisions Store. WOW! Check out their product and dried...More

Angus and Di welcome you to their cafe. The Cider House can be found just after crossing the bridge on State 8b. It is in the Freeway Complex and is the only cafe looking across to Lake Dunstan. Lovely outdoor area to relax in, either with coffee, a local juice, cider or wine, combine it with a reasonably priced meal or snack. Inside a cosy fire for those winter days.Call in anytime, open 7 days.
