A staple in Queenstown‚ palate since 1997, Vudu occupies significant territory in the hearts of locals and travelers alike. Michelle Freeman opened Vudu with the intention of providing patrons with fresh, original and well-crafted food and coffee. Sourcing local and organic produce where possible is also now a large part of Vudu’s ethos.
Situated on Beach St (home to the Winter Festival Mardi Gras and some great bars and restaurants) Vudu Café is bustling, vibrant, full of colourful characters and is not short of a visiting celebrity or two. The interior has booth seating and tables over which baristas working on the level above keep a keen eye and the space is made even more inviting with the log burner roaring during winter. A sunny courtyard provides a strong connection to the street and it is easy to while away the time out here.
Vudu is one of New Zealand’s most awarded cafes having received numerous Café Magazine Best Café Awards over the last 12 years. Chief judge Michael Guy describes Vudu as a notable café that‚ “consistently delivers superbly made coffee and top quality honest food.”
Staff are friendly, relaxed, and passionate about what they do and a visit to Vudu will leave you feeling well looked after, nicely satiated and most certainly wanting more.
