Astro Café

Cafe in Lake Tekapo

This glass-walled pavilion atop Mt John has spectacular 360-degree views across the entire Mackenzie Basin – just maybe one of the planet's best locations for a cafe. Tuck into bagels with salmon or a stonking slice of bacon and egg pie. There is a charge of $8 per car to access Mt John, but it's worth it for the views.
