The Boat Shed Cafe

Hidden gem at the marina (b,l; $$)


Originally a lakeside store in the 1870s, The Boat Shed’s building is steeped in town history, but was in disrepair until 2011 when it was restored by a local historical society.

It’s now one of Queenstown’s most popular eateries, right on the Frankton Walkway. Top coffee, local beers, wines and cider, plus a good range of cafe fare. Hard to pass up the Boat Shed Benedict for brunch.
