Lunch at Urban Grind was superb. Tastiest meal I have had in town, and we have eaten out a lot here. Cannot wait to try the items on the dinner menu. Biggest thumbs up.

We found nearly all the restaurants and cafes in Wanaka had heavy complex food. It was hard to find simple fresh salads. The Urban Grind was perfect for us, the salad with haloumi and another salad with falafel and humus were stunning. Large portions so we could share and they had great coffee. We sat outside enjoyed a glass of... More

We have been finding in week 1 of week 3 in Wanaka that there are so many great places to eat or just have coffee and the Urban Grind is one of them.

Delicious thin crust Roman-style pizza with just the right amount of toppings and nothing too outlandish. Groovy decor and buzzy clientele.

I popped in with my son for lunch. The food was excellent so was the service. I had the Asparagus and bean salad with hollumi and it was amazing. Dinner was just as good, despite being very busy and with no reservations we were able to get a table. We enjoyed dinner just as much as lunch.

Thank Goblynears
