I have eaten breakfast/brunch at Halo on many trips to Queenstown and never been disappointed. It is a busy, slightly crowded restaurant where you may need to share your table, but the coffee is good, the menu varied, the portions generous and the service excellent....More

This ticks all the boxes. Great parking right outside, great wifi to work while kids are actvities, healthy options with freshly squeezed juices and infusions. The best sit in burgers when you need one and plenty of choice for different parts of the day.

Went this morning. Staff were great and very friendly. Food was amazing. Best breakfast I've had here. If you're hungry get the big breakfast, it's well worth it.

We stopped here every morning for coffee before leaving for the ski slopes. The coffee was high quality (although we'd always order double shot as it was a bit weaker than we usually drink). The breakfast burrito was a standout for food.
