“THE cafe to go to during your visit in Queenstown!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 4, 2013

We've been coming back here a few times and they are never disappointing. Excellent food that come in good size portions (the best seafood chowder ever!) and excellent coffee, on top of it they are set in a lovely garden - such a great place to spend the day. They also have a dessert cabinet full of scrumptious options, it's definitely our guilty pleasure. :)

“All in one cafe”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 26, 2013 via mobile

Such a very good place to visit. Good food, good ambience, good service, good food, good food, good food. Yeah, I love the food. Try shrimp pancake (i think that's the name). It's one of my favorite ;) and oh, shop some cute stuffs there to complete your day.

“fantastic food and relaxing english garden style resto-10 out of 10!!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 24, 2013

I and my friend enjoyed eating at Walnut cottage several times when I was in Queenstown in end of March to early April 2013. It was really really amazing, relaxing, beautiful place to eat (for breakfast, brunch, lunch and afternoon tea.. but I forgot whether they're open or not for dinner)..

The food and beverage there were sooo delicious and in a very generous portions.. ( my favorite is the savoury pancakes for breakfast).. also the coffee, cappucino,.. yummmm.... and the prices are all affordable..value for money... moreover... we will have the bonus of beautiful english garden style that the cafe has.. so you'll experience eating outside the cafe.. in the middle of the gorgeous garden ..(or you can eat inside as well, but of course I prefer outside, enjoying the garden) also.. very friendly waiters.. everything's just perfect at Walnut cottage....completing my unforgettable moments in Queenstown.. :)

Will definitely go back here if I have a chance to visit Queenstown again someday.. :)

“perfect 10!!!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 20, 2013 via mobile

went here with some friends on a nice sunny afternoon. the garden looked so pretty & tidy, although it was autumn, leaves on the ground were very minimum! we ordered cheese burger, eggs on toast & pancakes cause they do all day breakfast! how sweet is that? they all very delicious & generous in portion. after that we had the carrot cake & some coffees, wow! to die for! this place is awesome we ended up stayed for 2 hours cause its just so cozy & relaxing. they also have a gift shop & sells really neat stuff. cant wait to come back soon.

“A perfect country cafe”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 1, 2013 via mobile

Easy to miss but make the effort to find it. Beautiful setting surrounded by gardens and so relaxing even with the children who were preoccupied rummaging around. The food and coffee were great too.
