The Hermitage

The Sir Edmund Hillary Café & 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.

Relax with a game of pool or sit back in our big comfy lounge chairs and watch the rugby, tennis, golf or whatever game is playing on the Sports channel.

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.

During the warmer months from 5.00pm to dusk the cafe reverts to an evening bar serving beverages and small snacks. Spend the evening relaxing on the cafe balcony watching the sunset over Aoraki Mount Cook.

The bar opens daily for a wide range of beverages.
