A taste of city life in idyllic Wanaka, Urban Grind has been going strong for over a decade. Specialists in casual dining and comfort eats in a contemporary setting, it's the perfect spot for a chilled lunchtime bite.

Spacious and friendly, their dining room is perfectly designed to encourage diners to take their time. Exposed brick walls and quirky décor afford Urban Grind an irresistible warmth. Come over in winter and the fire will be roaring; come in summer and the doors will be flung open to reveal a breathtaking view of the surrounding mountains. Needless to say, their alfresco area is some of the best in Wanaka, combining the town’s buzz with some of the most stunning views in NZ.

For your midday feed, feel free to make it as brunchy or lunchy as you like. Refuel on Urban Grind’s big brekkie, keep it simple with a bacon and egg butty, or dial up the sweet factor with some brioche french toast sticks with lemon curd, coconut foam, and berry compote.

If you’re over the brunch vibe, take your pick of international superstars, like the Japanese pancake with pork belly or the green egg salad brimming with mixed greens and smothered in green goddess dressing. And of course, Urban Grind wouldn’t be the success it is without its hand-rolled pizzas. Crispy, thin and light, their traditional offerings have the whole town raving.

If you're stopping by for dinner, start with delicious small plates like the pulled pork taco or fried chicken, ideal for sharing (if you wish). For the main course, savour the tempting pea and pumpkin risotto with truffle oil, or the mouthwatering sirloin steak with parsnip puree and crispy onions. And for pizza lovers, Urban Grind's hand-rolled pizzas roll into the evening delivering a satisfying Italian experience with every irresistible bite.
