Stopped here for lunch. We were attracted by the veggie options. Not always easy to find. Super lunch with drinks offer. Loved sitting outside, watching the world go by. Enjoyed reading about the history of the building and the tree.

This place is THE place to go in Queenstown, NZ. They have happy hours every day, and $5 drink specials all day every day. Didn't eat here but wouldn't mind betting it would be good.
