Went for coffee and eggs benny.
Coffee was great and eggs benny was full of flavour. All the food on display looked amazing. Great brunch, just what I needed.

“So Good had two long blacks in 10 minutes.”
Reviewed 14 August 2014

Wandered in and was served by Chris Hadfield with a small whiteboard.
This system was tidy and no paper notes floating around.
We placed our order for coffees and snacks for 4 took our seats.
Drinks and Food appeared within 3 minutes in a busy slot with all seats taken.
The cakes and coffee were superb and they had a great lunch menu.
Very professional business,attention to detail,plenty of fast helpful staff.
I was only in Wanaka for the day but would definitely recommend.
We eat out in Noosa a lot so slick service is nothing new but Daily Ritual and the team
have style,class and quirkiness that makes you comfortable quickly.
Best coffee of the trip to NZ and in Wanaka.

“Great food”
Reviewed 28 July 2014 via mobile

Frequent eater of the 'savoury muffin' my favourite place in town to get 1, infact all the food is wonderful. Great fried eggs - many places can't seem to cook them! Coffee is lovely, although you could do with some flavoured syrups

“Great coffee and food”
Reviewed 12 July 2014 via mobile

Frequently visited because of the coffee and friendliness. Great food choices - the chowder and carrot cake were amazing! Kids liked their battered dogs and chips (would have liked a healthier option, sandwiches too sophisticated for them). When I had to make a phone call they remade my coffee. Takeaway coffee was good too.

We just had a quick coffee at the end of the day and could not fault it. Would like to try some of their food when next in Wanaka.
