Wild Mushrooms at The Boatshed

Wild mushrooms on toast have been such a crowd pleaser at The Boatshed café at Frankton that the kitchen has teamed up with local urban farmer Remarkable Fungi to source a constant supply of gourmet mushrooms.

“The dish is a real favourite and a delicious autumnal dish as the season changes,” says general manager Natalie Fearon. “ The mushrooms are paired with whipped feta, shaved pecorino, truffle oil and porcini salt – what’s not to love about this dish.”

The French toast dish is popular at The Boatshed

Housed in the original 1860s New Zealand Railways Shipping office the café is one of Queenstown’s most popular eateries based alongside the Frankton Marina and the Queenstown Trail with stunning views over Lake Whakatipu.

New additions to the autumn menu are expected to be popular.

“There are some exciting seasonal variations on the classics, a new autumnal salad and some tasty breakfast items. Our menu changes monthly so people should check our website and social media for updates,” says Natalie. “Classic favourites like our signature French toast that features a gooey mascarpone centre topped with seasonal fruits and the chorizo scramble on crispy potatoes remain and are hard to beat.” 

The Boatshed is fully licensed offering a wide range of craft beers from its sister restaurant and brewery Canyon Brewing.

“ We recently put in a tap system and can now offer pints of beer as well as cans. It’s the ideal locale to spend an afternoon snacking on delicious plates and sipping the freshest craft beer, our famous Bloody Mary’s or Aperol spritz when the sun is out.”

The café recently partnered with Wolf Coffee Roasters in Arrowtown to provide the best source of coffee.

“We worked closely with them to create a specific Boat Shed coffee blend of high quality origins that is well-balanced, full flavoured and bright,” says Natalie.
