Had brunch here. Food was okay as was the coffee - nothing special. Close to the Shotover Jet and Shotover River.

First impression was that it was a little bare, the prices seemed ok.

The staff were friendly. However they didn't seem to know anything about the food. They had to keep going out the back to ask the chef basic things, such as what vegetarian options were available and what flavour the pies were.

My homemade sausage roll was great, but my girlfriend got a hot cross bun and it had no flavour.

Our tea and coffee took ages to come, and it wasn't even busy. I had ordered a mocha and received a cappuccino, I'm sure they would have fixed it but I didn't want to wait another 20 minutes for a coffee so I didn't bother.

We had our breakfasts at Cavells while staying at a hotel nearby. The menu has enough variety and options to keep one coming back. The food tastes great, is very well presented and generously proportioned. The pricing is extremely competitive and makes this worth serious consideration if you are in that part of town around breakfast or lunch.

We enjoyed all of our meals here and would certainly come back when we visit Queenstown again.

Only small drawback the location as this is not a place you would come to if living in the city, unless you were jet boating on the shotover river.

Awesome in every way, the food, the coffee, the scenery, the sounds of the jet boats doing their thing! The friendly staff. Beautiful photo opportunities with the bridge as a background. Great way to finish our stay in scenic Queenstown.

Hi there Pauline. Good too hear you enjoyed you're experience with us. The views are stunning. It is a real sun trap there in the summer. A great place too sit for a while and relax. Thank you for coming in and hope too see you soon.

Nothing to dislike, food is really nice, views are stunning and great place to watch the jets zipping up and down the canyon.
