Fodor's Expert Review Matheson Cafe
The food at this all-day café is decent if predictable (a huge breakfast menu, burgers at lunch, beef rib eye, and lamb cutlets for dinner) but the scenery steals the show. If the weather plays ball you'll be able to enjoy a memorably stunning view: an amphitheater of mountains (Aoraki/Mt. Cook and Mt. Tasman) and, in the foreground, tall kahikatea forest. Take time also to browse the Reflectionz Gifts and Galley next door.
