Though a bit on the expensive side this reflects Queenstown. The staff were super friendly and efficient and a mixed up order was quickly fixed without extra cost. Lovely food and good drinks.

Columbus Coffee shops have become an institution in NZ. The food is always well prepared, the coffee of excellent quality and I have yet to have a bad experience with the staff.

I was out with a friend for the day and she suggested we have lunch here. As usual with Columbus Coffee, the food was delicious and the coffee good. It was busy but still good service.

We have been on a ski holiday here in Queenstown for 8 days. Day one we were dying for a coffee so stopped in. The coffee was absolutely delicious and the staff super friendly. We have since come every day ( and sometimes twice in...one day). The coffee is consistently perfect and the customer service amazing. We would recommend this place to any coffee snob out there! For a chain this place has boutique coffee shop written all over it. Will certainly be back when next we visit Queenstown. Oh and the cheese scones are second to none.More

From the minute you walk into this cafe there is a positive vibe about the place. The light, airy space with views of plants one side and mountains the other is very relaxing. The staff are superb - friendly and very attentive. The cabinet food...is a visionary delight for any food lover, catering for all dietary requirements. The Barrister knows his coffee and all seven coffees were spot on. We all ordered our breakfast from the menu and each meal was presented beautifully and tasted delicious- everyone ordered a different meal and no one was disappointed. The owners Jodi and Dion have really made a mark here and are a credit to the Columbus brand and NO, I don’t have shares in the company - I just value excellent food, excellent coffee, excellent service and excellent atmosphere. A must to visit in Queenstown- enjoy.More
