A busy cafe in the heart of Queenstown. We bought a pot of tea and hot chocolate only but the food looked amazing. It had tables for 2, and larger groups also, both in and outside. Quick and efficient service.

Breakfast great half hour wifi a bit stingy. Eggs bene. Were great loved the rosti. Coffee and service was also good, I screwed up and forgot to mention my friend required GF and they kindly swapped the breakfast we received with a new one.

Went here three times during our Queenstown stay. Good food, coffee and chai each time. Chocolate porridge was really good (not too sweet), as was the eggs benedict. Friendly staff and good, unpretentious atmosphere.

The food is fresh and tasty. The service is friendlier than I experienced at Vudu. Prices are good for value received. I knocked off a star for the grossly dirty patio. Cigarette butts, bird droppings and dirt. Looked like it hadn't been hosed off in...More

We stopped at The Exchange for lunch. Ordered sausage rolls and salad to share and scones for after. After cutting sausage rolls found they were cold inside. They were taken away and replaced and hot the second time. Apologies were given but service all round...More
