After nearly 10 days in Queenstown we finally got around to Halo for breakfast and coffee. Cute little cafe with friendly staff. Breakfast was tasty! Long black was the smoothest we've had and we have tried nearly every cafe including the more reviewed ones on here of which I had to revert back to milk based coffee..... If you like black coffee, come here!
Warm friendly staff, beautiful north-easterly aspect, and all-day sun, light-filled and pleasant. Busy at the weekend - can be a rush. The staff are world-class in attentiveness as far as cafes go - our waitress had near-ESP abilities to know when we needed anything. Our corn fritters and feta avocado rye toast were excellent, the former fluffy and ungreasy and the latter richly tasty. And yet. The coffee is truly poor. Flat whites come in two sizes: too large, and even larger. It turned out they could do one in a tulip cup, but by that point I should have known what would come next. Bitter, burnt and hiding miserably under 2 cm of pure white foam. Go for the food and the atmosphere, but avoid the coffee.
Great place to chill, eat well and enjoy a well made coffee. The coffee is consistent, visited 3 times with the coffee coming out the same each time. Great menu with awesome food and the service impeccable. Miss out on this place and you'll be disappointed. Coffee smooth, and balanced.
Situated where else but the corner of Church St and Camp St in the CBD, this cafe is on the site of the old manse for St Peters Church. Inside are two areas....one private and cosy, the other open and airy with floor to ceiling windows. An outside area includes large timber communal benches. To expand on the theme the all female staff dress in black with names like 'Angel', 'Possessed','Worship Me' and 'Divine'. Not a bad coffee through that La Cimbali with Gravity beans and it opens early too.
