“A perfect country cafe”
5 of 5 bubbles 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.

“Great little cafe!Worth the drive!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 15, 2013

Went to the Walnut Cottage today with the girlfriend and wow what a place. Amazing food and tea, and just beautiful surroundings. Was pretty busy and our food came quickly and efficiently. You can chose to sit inside or out, but it was a sunny day so we sat outside. Theres also a cool little shop out the back to buy some quirky souvenirs. Would defo go back!

“Great Lunch Stop”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 11, 2013

Being 3 adults and 3 hungry children we were looking for a decent lunch cafe on our way into Queenstown. Walnut Cottage serves an excellent coffee and a wide variety of tasty food catering for all ages. The garden setting was more than acceptable, service and attentive smiling staff a pleasure to behold.
