Dining

Astro Cafe

On top of Mount John, Astro Cafe offers light meals, coffees and drinks to accompany a fantastic view. We should mention there is a fee of $8 if you drive to the top, but we think the view is worth it. If you’re looking for exercise, you can hike up to the cafe and enjoy a coffee as a reward!
