Refuel at Sir Edmund Hillary Alpine Cafe & Bar

Providing a unique and inspiring atmosphere in which to refresh, refuel and relax. Specialising in classic Kiwi fare, the self-service café & bar also offers floor to ceiling views of Aoraki Mount Cook, from indoor or outdoor seating.

Free Wifi is available within the cafe to guests staying at the Hermitage Hotel, Motels and Chalets during opening hours.

The café is open daily from 8.30am to 5.00pm (seasonal hours may apply) for fresh sandwiches and paninis, salads, locally made pies, pizzas, sausage rolls and a hot dish of the day. Tea, coffee, cold drinks, cakes and pastries are available.
