This cafe is wonderful; innovative food, nice people and great sweets! We enjoyed an afternoon break here and a leisurely breakfast. Although it was very crowded, we didn't feel rushed and really enjoyed our time here both on the back patio are and one of the tiny tables in front.

Everything looked and tasted so good we ended up having breakfast here twice during our week in Queenstown. Though it was very busy, the service was fast and friendly, and the food came out very quick. Highly recommend the avocado smash, pancakes, and any of the fresh squeezed juices!

Delicious plate of smashed avo, poached eggs, spinach, tomatoes, and halloumi. Coffee tastes great. If you sit outside you can people watch and see the small harbour with the mountains in the back ground.

One of the best breakfast I have ever had. Very good coffee and great staff. Good location but they always manage to find a table for you.

I live in Germany and missed a good carrot cake. I tried the one at Ferg's Bakery and the frosting was super sweet, bordering on inedible. Everything I tried at Vudu's cafe was delicious. The carrot cake was not too sweet but was moist and full of walnuts with a rich, subtle frosting. I had a friendly Irish girl waiting... More

We had breakfast at Vudu on all 3 mornings we were in Queenstown, and were very pleased we did. A staggering assortment of pastries, sandwiches, pies etc are on display and we opted for a cooked breakfast each time. Quick, friendly service, food beautifully presented and a great vibe each time we visited. A complete no-brainier for a great start... More
