Vigour Vitality

Are you dairy-free? We found out about Vigour Vitality Nut & Seed Mylks because some our cafes use their Barista Blend in-house - but now we can buy them for home. Shake a teaspoon of paste up with filtered water and you're in the mylk! So rich and so good.

Muskets and Moonshine

Brecon Street, Queenstown is the home of Muskets and Moonshine. A stylish but homely place to  stretch out with a cold one in summer. These guys prepare seasonal, local fayre, suitable for a catch up over drinks or a meal with family. Brunch, Lunch, Snacks, Supper. And UYOC for a discount on your take out coffee! They don't so any disposable cups here. Magic.
