Perfect Place for a Solo Traveler

Member Rating 4 out of 5 by midtownmjd on May 26, 2010

Vudu Café is the type of place I’d love to have in my neighborhood—the kind of place that’s perfect for a solo traveler to relax and enjoy a good meal. It’s cozy—there are eight tables inside, plus a few extras outside—with candles, good music, and a heaving magazine rack. The vibe is casual and unrushed, and I felt like I could sit at my window table as long as I liked.

It was hard to pass up the NZ$15 spaghetti Bolognese special (which included a glass of wine), but I had my eye on a chicken-and-cashew noodle bowl for NZ$18. It was tasty, hearty, and just the right size.

Vudu serves breakfast, lunch, and dinner, and keeps the counter stocked with pastries if you’re on the go. The café is surrounded by both upscale shops and souvenir storefronts, and is near a candy shop and an ice cream vendor for dessert.
