Since my last visit, the owner of the Blind Finch has turned his Hambergeria around to meet the current conditions. Gone is the bar and the dine in restaurant but in its place is the most amazing bakery and Hambergeria. I visited in the daytime to be greeted by a delicious selection of pies, hot cross buns, pastries and I had to stop there because there is only so much one person can eat!! I ordered a Pork Belly sandwich (sour dough bread made on the premises). It's sad that the owners have had to change from what their passion was, but it certainly hasn't changed the quality nor variety of the fare. Gotta take your hat off to business owners who have been willing to change and move forward in a new world. Hamburgers are now available in the evening.... Oh and great coffee.

Fantastic burgers, busy in winter season though - have always had to wait for take away and dine in - but always worth the wait. DELICIOUS.

I have had a weekend away in Ohakune about 3 times in the past 6 months and I always make sure I come here for a coffee and treat every morning without fail. I try and have a hearty burger on a relaxing evening too.

The staff are always friendly and welcoming. The service is quick. The food is exceptional!

Certainly recommend and a must do in Ohakune. Only way to start a day of adventure!!

Came here today based off TA reviews was exactly what we wanted for a late brekkie.
We both had steak and cheese pies which were awesome plus a couple of coffees. The sweet pastries looked amazing so should have bought some for dessert later.
The wonderful barrista who loved griffon dogs and came outside to meet ours made this an unforgettable experience- wish we were staying closer to try the burgers which sounded amazing but totally recommend this place.

We were recommended these burgers by friends & were certainly not disappointed. We both ordered a General Lee- chicken, delicious flavours, homemade bread & loads of filling. Definitely recommend these to others.
