Fergusson's Cafe

Our laid-back eatery in Whakapapa Village, situated within 100 metres of the hotel, gives you the chance to mingle with locals and enjoy the fresh air in Tongariro National Park.

Enjoy lunch or a snack in this historic building, a quaint repurposed mountain huts built before the opening of Chateau Tongariro. Restored to its former glory, Fergusson’s Cafe offers hot and cold mountain beverages and the healthiest of cuisine.

Fergusson’s  provides a world-famous big breakfast that is perfect for hikers. Delicious cabinet food is also available including sandwiches and sweet treats.

The ambience of Fergusson’s Cafe is like dining in a mountain hut, located in the heart of Whakapapa Village and just 50 metres from Chateau Tongariro Hotel. There is also a Petanque pitch in the Fergusson Café gardens, so ask at the cafe for a set of Boules and indulge in a fun game while you await your meal!
