Looking for somewhere to have breakfast and this place seemed to be busy. However, you order your food at the counter and then the waitress finds you somewhere to sit. Had delicious coffee and delicious poached eggs on toast with bacon. Don’t be put off...More

Always busy, but efficient & delicious!! I’m going back for the carrot cake alone. The best I’ve had.....ever!!! You won’t be disappointed. Well priced too. Lakefront views outside. Our group were all very pleased with their choices.

Busy little cafe which offered fantastic coffee and great service. Whilst I did not have a meal had a lovely muffin and really liked the buzz of the place

Always go here for Breakfast when ever I am in Queenstown - Had the Eggs Benny this time and a colleague had the Smashed Avo which looked amazing. Coffee is also very good.

We visited for breakfast. Try the avocado on seeded toast with a poached egg.  Dont't be discouraged if it is busy. The kitchen turns out orders in about 10 minutes, and the staff turn tables quickly.  Your table will be ready before your order arrives.

I can’t recommend this place enough. The food and coffee is unbelievable and I recommend eating outside as you get to see the beautiful view. Blankets are even provided to make you more comfortable.

Finding the best spot for breakfast can be a challenge, every Cafe claims to be Top. Vudu was a 10/10 in Food, coffee and service. I short wait for a table is well worth it. The menu is fresh and adventurous and packed with flavour.
