We hired bikes and found this gem on the map. Wasn't a long ride from Queenstown. We had a delicious lunch and wine to compliment! The staff were so lovely and friendly, really adds to your dining experience. We wanted to head back for dinner...More

Food was nice and portions generous, with lovely views and good coffee thrown in. Turmeric coconut milk latte for my lactose intolerant wife made it a great choice.

One of my favourite meals in Queenstown was at The Boat Shed Cafe. It is a little off the beaten path and isn’t in downtown Queentown. The location is a 30 minute walk or quick drive from where we were staying at The Rees Hotel....More

Great gluten free and vegetarian options here (the Corn fritters are so good), lovely atmosphere with a cool decor. Mid winter the fire is going and the coffee is great. It's a popular place so be sure to book if you can, and allow time...More

Food was great, the big breakfast was amazing. It is quite small and right on the lake. Prices are as expected, not cheap or expensive.

Such a cute and cozy find! Great views of the river (and the landing planes!) delicious food and coffee. We came back twice and each time was just as good. This is an 'off the track' but not too far, local delicious place to escape...More

Attended this location for coffee whilst waiting for our jet boat adventure at a nearby location. Was 10am and te place was buzzing with breakfast/brunch eaters. Food looked great. Older lady employee seemed a bit taken aback that we were only there for takeaway coffee...More

Came here for breakfast mid morning on a Wednesday. We were greeted by the friendliest dog outside the door! Very cute wee building and nice and cozy inside. I recommend the french toast it was delicious!! Would definitely visit again!

Visited midday for a very late brunch/lunch. A few people sitting at tables (by no means busy). Our table needed wiping (as did others as people arrived), waitress was friendly. We needed to ask for water - she just plonked a bottle on the table...More

Stopped here for lunch and was enchanted by what laid behind the red door. Delicious food and coffee and superb service with Vicki, the outlook is beautiful.
