“Great whitebait fritter”
Reviewed 22 December 2012

Was there recently and since it is Whitebait season, the fritter on a bun was just great, coffee is pretty good as well. Their burgers are also very good and tasty. They are out of the way in the Frankton Industrial Area, so if passing and want a burger stop at Placemakers and they are in the forecourt. Good parking.

“Watch out for these guys!”
Reviewed 22 November 2012 via mobile

The previous reviewer is spot on! Glossed over the coffee a little tho.. This place, inexplicably, has one of the best coffees anywhere in town. Out of a container! I have heard the housewife brigade singing the praises too so clearly word of mouth is working here. Keep up the good work boys!

“Queenstowns hidden gem”
Reviewed 23 August 2011

We read about this little place a while back. We finally found it a few weeks ago. Basically, it's a container which has been converted into a little coffee/cafe right next to hardware store Placemakers. It's set up to catch tradies and diy people. It's open 6 days a week - mon to sat. The two young guys serve good coffee and fabulous rolls. Not just any rolls, egg and bacon, beef and horseradish and many others. It's a simple concept. You can choose mini, midi or maxi sizes of the roll of your choice. The salad in each roll is fresh as. The sauces are delicious. They can be wrapped in foil bags to keep them warm - if you can wait that long! Each Friday between 7 - 9 am the boss from placemakers tosses a coin to see if you pay or not. We need innovative and affordable places like this in queenstown. It's a little out of the way, but well worth a visit.
