The last time I was in Queenstown for this long was when I was a scholar and it’s become clear that I’ll be here for a bit longer than I initially thought. With that, I’ve decided to start living and make the most of my time here. I say this to say that this is the introduction of a new segment to my blog, a compilation of places I’ve visited and those I still hope to visit just to show that Queenstown is really not the dry place we make it out to be.
Places I’ve loved before- The coffee shop
Last visited in 2017, most memorable to me for it’s vintage aesthetic, is the perfect place to have informal business meetings, catch up with a friend or even have a solo date just to experience the solitude and beauty of this place.
A lover and friend.
Today I went with this beaut and the experience was nothing short of the expected. Calm and peaceful as always, we had a great catch up session over lunch. Also, we were today years old when we realised that coffee dates are actually essential.
The menu offers a variety of hot and cold beverages, typical light lunch time meals and an array of cakes and pastries. I ordered a burger (it’s been a while since I’ve had one) and Iyanda, as expected ordered Pasta. Portions? Your moneys worth, really. A solid 7/10 for what we ordered.
Traditional beef burger
Chicken, Bacon & Pesto Pasta
At this point we were super full but had convinced ourselves that we had left enough space for cake so what did we do? We got cake!
After months of lockdown, every time we get to step out of the house is an opportunity to look cute. This date wouldn’t have made sense without a cute outfit. So here, outfit of the day.
Hat- Mr Price
This is probably one of my favourite spots in this town- Top 3. A place I’ll keep going back to. If you’re wondering about their prices, we didn’t spend more than R200 each, and that, my friends, is how affordable the Coffee shop is. My overall experience rating would be a 7,5/10. Definitely would recommend.
I hope you enjoyed this. Stay safe- always.
