The mission behind Well Bean café at the Wānaka Health Centre is to provide fresh, healthy and hearty food which is different to the Wanaka café norm.
Looking after our physical and mental health starts with what we put in our bodies. It’s all about balance and we are providing for those looking for breakfast, lunch or
morning tea on the go. I have always loved food that nourishes the soul as well as the body. Everything should be eaten in moderation and while it’s okay to feast on
toasties, sandwiches, scones, homemade baking and baked potatoes, sometimes people just crave a salad or hearty soup.
Well Bean’s freshly-baked double cheesy scones, Wanaka scones are ‘a thing’, which also come gluten free, are popular with locals and the café is gaining notoriety for its fresh gourmet toasties which change weekly, club sandwiches and homemade baking.
The ‘Well Beans’ as the team is fondly referred to also create daily gluten friendly, vegetarian options for sweet and savoury food.
While most of the café’s food is made onsite in the small commercial kitchen, Well Bean also supports local providers and stocks well-known Wānaka items from businesses such as Balance Me, Curls and Cakes, Good Roots Feasting, Pirate Pickles and Pembroke Patisserie — with their quiche and mini sausage rolls on the menu daily and almond croissants and custard squares a regular feature every Friday.
Well Bean also offers catering for small groups, clubs and businesses. While the focus is English high-tea — think club sandwiches, mini scones, savouries and sweet treats — we also have other menus including wraps, salads, and morning tea options.
Great cheese scones, Gluten Friendlky Cheese Scones, Gourmet Toasties, traditional Club Sandwiches and great coffee from Orb.
