Quiet places to eat your lunch in Queenstown

When I work in town I love to take my sandwich (or chocolate bar really healthy smoothie) down to a place where I know it will be quiet.

My Food Bag arrives in Queenstown

I am the worlds laziest cook and I’m even worse when it comes to shopping for recipes. I love to eat food, taste food, dine out for food but when it comes to preparing it I turn into my 18 year old student self and create an epic cornflake-toast dish most nights.
