16 Dec Old Mountaineers Café and Bar, Mount Cook Village
Because we didn’t have breakfast I was rather hungry when we got back from our Tasman Glacier kayaking trip at 2pm, so we just got lunch at the Old Mountaineers Café and Bar.
I had the Local-Farmed Aoraki Smoked Salmon Bagel With Aioli, Cream Cheese, Lettuce, Red Onion And A Wedge Of Lemon ($15) and dad had the soup of the day, which was Pumpkin And Ginger Soup ($13.50). Kind of expensive, but I just wanted to eat something. My bagel wasn’t bad, although the bagel wasn’t very dense. It was more like bagel-shaped bread.
The sourdough toast that came with the pumpkin soup was nice, being a slightly denser than typical soup bread so it was better for eating with the soup than regular bread.
