Friendly, creative café with a home away from home atmosphere. The coffee is locally roasted and delivered daily. They have home baking which includes banana bread, friands, brownie, ginger crunch. Open for breakfast, lunch and dinner with fantastic warm fire in winter and outdoor courtyard. They also make birthday and wedding cakes and cater for lunches and canapés.

Delicious breakfast and friendly service. Get there early though as it gets very busy. I got there at 9.30am and still had to share a table, but that's fine.

For a sunny brekkie overlooking the lake, this is fantastic. Lots of space inside if the weather isn't in your favour. Generous helpings and great coffee.

THEN there is something definitely not right with the organisational skills of the staff. I am pretty sure coffee takes less time to make than a pancake stack. So I m not sure why it took so long for the tardiness of the drinks. And it was not just me, the lady at the table across from me was half... More

The menu being quite expensive, I decided to try a sandwich from the fridge. Very bad idea. The bread was stale, chewy and tasteless. I regretted the decision immediately and wanted my money back.

Always a wide variety of choice in hot and cold food, sandwiches and cakes. Judging by the queues we were not the only ones who liked to have our coffee and tea here. Service is quick and freindly

I've been there every afternoon for studying and drinking a divine Mocaccino or a Smoothie...so tasty; I'm Italian so I'm used to drink the "best coffe in the world", so I really think that Vudu's coffe is amazing. The service is very good... More

This cafe serves really delicious food and is rightfully busy so be prepared for a queue but it is really one of the best places in Queenstown for coffees and breakfast.

Popped in for some breakfast and the food and vibe was so good we had to go back for lunch. Coffee was a little over heated so bitter but all else was great.
