We've come here 4-5 times over the past two years and I have to say I think it's the best place to eat in Queenstown. Great vibe, brilliant staff (thanks Eden) and the food is on point. Highly recommend!

Fantastic breakfast with an amazing view. The choice and quality of the breakfast on offer was exceptional. It was not the cheapest but it was value for money for the quality of all the produce. Definitely worth another visit.
