“Yummy yummy!”
Reviewed 8 March 2012

We dropped in here for brunch after seeing how busy it was. Food and coffee were scrumptious! I had muesli which was just right, not too hard. My friends' food were yummy too! Try it!

“Perfect stop for a hot chocolate”
Reviewed 7 March 2012

Vudu Cafe serves wonderful coffee, tea, chololate, cakes, breakfast and delicious and organic lunches. It is right facint Wakatipu Lake and it is a perfect stop for a rest after one of the various Queenstown activities. We stopped there and had wonderful hot chocolate, moccachino and delicious lunches. Cozy atmosphere and very friendly service

“Did not live up to expectations”
Reviewed 5 March 2012

We went to Vudu for a brunch in February expecting great things based on the reviews we had read and the awards this place has won, however we were left very disappointed.
The place was very busy (as it had been every time we passed), however we found a table and placed an order at the counter.The staff weren't very polite or friendly, the place had a bit of a 'too cool to care' feel about it.
We waited a while for our drinks and then food to arrive, but that's fine, they were very busy and I would always prefer to wait a bit longer for good food.
My husband ordered poached eggs with sausage and I had scrambled eggs bacon, both came with potato wedges and toast. The poached eggs looked lovely but the yolks were rock solid, they'd clearly been forgotten about and the scrambled eggs came as one big lump, more like an omelette. Not really the standard we were expecting. Oddly the toast was dripping in olive oil and there was an arty swirl of balsamic vinegar around the plate, very strange for a breakfast dish and did nothing to enhance the taste. Unfortunately we didn't have the time to send the lot back and ask for fresh as we had a trip booked that day, although looking back I wish we'd asked for a refund and gone elsewhere.
The place is very funky and looks great but the prices charged really aren't indicative of the breakfast you are going to get! Personally I would go to the Post Office cafe, far better service, quality and value.
