“Cheese scones”
Reviewed 17 June 2014

Love their cheese scones, but over the years they have got smaller and smaller which is dissapointing, they were her best in NZ but think they have slipped a bit in that catorgary, never mind coffee was ok

Sunday ritual of date scone (best I've ever had) and a wicked americano - Fed is the locals insider secret! Not for long I'd imagine...

“Home away from home”
Reviewed 3 June 2014 via mobile

We were in Wanaka on holiday for only a few days, but spent multiple meals there. The warm atmosphere, great coffee (try the iced coffee!), and tasty food kept us coming back.

“Frequent visitor”
Reviewed 31 May 2014

When in Wanaka we visit Federal at least every couple of days. Great coffee, good food and a great kids menu. Awesome lunch salads. Enjoy it in the sunny outdoor area.
