“Really really really nice coffee”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 5, 2013

this place is way too funky - and the staff (other than the chef) seem almost too cool for school, but maybe they deserve to be since they made us AMAZING coffee and gorgeous food !!!!, we also liked the easy access to newspapers and magazine to relax and enjoy our morning. plan to return every single time i visit queenstown. well done baristas !

“Motogrill Rev's on excellent coffee”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 3, 2013

We were taken here by friends who use it as their local coffee shop and meeting place. It's easy to see why, excellent breakfast, cold counter and coffee complimented by fun staff and interesting NZ music playing over speakers but without killing the conversation. Everyone seemed to know everyone else which made for a friendly, entertaining and happy atmosphere. More comfortable seating would have made a difference but then again would probably encourage too many to linger. Definitely a keeper.

“Great little Place”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 29, 2013

As a local its good to support the places in town that go that extra mile with service and food and motogrill is definitely one of them! Awesome coffee and choices of food available. Friendly staff that are willing to make sure you get the best for your dollars.
Would recommend this place to everyone....
Keep up the good work! :)

“The locals' choice.”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 8, 2013

I really LOVE this place. The cafe has a really cool atmosphere, with lots of friendly staff banter, and a real mix of local characters popping in and out. Try the 'Southland Sushi' and make sure to get a coffee - the best in town! Sit at the counter and chat to the locals to get the best Moto experience.
