When you need to escape the craziness of Queenstown but need to stay in Queenstown, this is the place to go. Food and drinks are good, but the best part is the chill vibe.

My husband and I recently spent about a week in Queenstown and ate here just about every day for breakfast. I'm a tricky eater (gluten free and vegetarian) and was so happy to find yummy options here! I tried both the french toast and eggs/toast and they were delicious every time. My husband's omelette's always looked wonderful as well. Oh,... More

This is a great little cafe for weekend breakfast. There were six of us and we had no trouble finding a table large enough to accomodate us all. We chose a variety of dishes and we were all happy with the food and service.

Ordered the Avocado smash which had poached eggs and bacon, food came out very quick so we didn't wait long but was disappointed with my meal. I am an Avocado fan, love it, this meal used processed avocado with the odd chunk of fresh mixed in - not pleasant. bacon wasn't cooked enough and eggs were cold. Cost $25.

This is an affordable well priced restaurant with a nice ambiance. You are met with a warm greeting and a friendly smile.

Had breakfast here three times last week since it was close to our hotel and impressed us the first visit. Nice egg dishes, especially the feta and avocado smash, good service, coffee a bit subpar to other places in town; otherwise the freshest eggs around and great bread and jams

This looked great from the outside but have to say the service and food was not as good as what we were expecting. We went for lunch and thought it was a bit average. Not good enough to tempt us back.

The avocado and feta mash was delicious and served on thick perfectly toasted bread. It's a lovely setting with a really welcoming staff.
