Rated by Customers as #2 of 32 “Quick Bites in Queenstown”!

Love this place – reasonable prices ★★★★★ 

I love Habebe’s so much. Super friendly staff, and was the perfect place for some healthier food. I got the salad plate with the beets, spinach salad, green beans, and quinoa with lamb and hummus on top – it was amazing! Also, very reasonable prices!

Great lunch ★★★★★ 

We had a quick late lunch here. Felafel wraps and chicken wraps. The food was delicious, fresh and relatively healthy. Coffee wasn’t bad either. I would have been happy to eat here everyday!

Favourite lunch spot in Queenstown ★★★★★ 

Absolutely fantastic place to eat in or takeaway from. The food is delicious and super healthy, perfect for a guilt free hangover cure.

Healthy fresh one of a kind ★★★★★ 

Always enjoy the varied options at habebes The sweet treats are a must Can be busy however service is efficient

What a gem ★★★★★ 

Perfect place for lunch for our vegan, vegetarian, piscetarian, carnivore family. Something delicious to suit all of us.

Great salads ★★★★★ 

The salads are delicious and the portion sizes quite generous. My wife and I both ordered a medium size serving of salads with meat for lunch. Everything was so fresh and after eating lots of burgers, fries etc it was great to find healthy food that was so delicious. Definitely recommend as an meal option especially to balance out the less healthy options.

Nice little find ★★★★★

Tucked away down a side street in Queenstown this is a very nice cafe to get a midday snack. Does very nice wraps and highly recommended to fill that mid morning hollow in the stomach.

Tasty, healthy and Friendly staff ★★★★★ 

We came here for a lunch and we’re amazed with the quality of the food and how healthy it was. This was a perfect lunch option (or dinner). Generous portion size of salad and meat with yummy sauces.
