Boasting views for days, this cafe opened by Sir Edmund Hillary — one of the very first people to ever reach Mount Everest's summit — has a strong dedication to locally sourced, organic and free-range products. Those on the team at the Old Mountaineer's make food they'd be happy to eat at home. Order breakfast, lunch or dinner and enjoy an organic coffee, organic wine or a Speight's beer — favoured by the cafe for its "don't mess with nature" approach to brewing.
