When we arrived at Kingston Corner, the service showed very little interest in helping the customers. Simple questions concerning the menu obviously bothered the service team. Their reactions were harsh. Food wasn't even good.

Located on State Highway 6, Kingston Corner Cafe & Bar was a welcome find. We found it having been recommended that we fill our gas tank at the Kingston Gas Station 3818 Kingston Rd, Kingston 9793 - said to be the cheapest gas station on the south island. It was certainly the cheapest we found. The Kingston Corner Cafe &... More

Nice sheltered spot to stop on the road south from Queenstown. Good selection of food, tasty and smart service. Excellent burger of generous proportions. Worth the stop.

I have been through Kingston 3 times now and on the past two occasions I have to say we ate down at the Kingston railway station cafe which is now closed. This is basically the only place to eat in Kingston but can I say they have not let this monopoly go to their heads. The food was fantastic with... More

Me and my friends had a great time at Kingston Corner, friendly staff and lovely deck with good afternoon sun. Place felt very welcoming and we had the best fish'n'chips there! Amazing views and great toilets. You can feel that the owners have put much love into this charming cafe. Definitely stop by and enjoy!

Stopped at this coffee shop having driven from Te Anau and on our way to Arrowtown. I don't usually bother making comments for coffee stops but this was too good to ignore. A very warm welcome, quick service and an excellent coffee. They offer various food items, snacks, free wifi and there is a little shop as well. There were... More
