OK bagel

Got the impossible burger bagel thing... Tasted OK but quite unhealthy and oily - would've been nice if they'd thrown in a tomato or cucumber or something fresh just to balance it out. Not really many other options.

Pros: Impossible patty is always impressive, Bagel tasted all right

Cons: Wasn't very fresh feeling, Toilet is a bit of a walk away and you need a key

Delicious bagel/burger

We got the impossible burger - to make it vegan it comes in a bagel rather than a bun. It was really yummy, a good size (I couldn’t finish it at once) and came with a delicious fried pickle. I’d definitely go again. #Veganuary

Pros: Delicious burger

Cons: Not a lot of vegan options

Great Bagel

The vegan bagel here was great. Not a lot of other choice, but have the full range of plant milks and would eat here again

Fresh bagels and a fun PLT

As recommended, grabbed the BLT and subbed for a hash brown instead of bacon on a rosemary bagel. The bagel was super fresh and the hash was really good with the tomato, lettuce, and vegan mayo. Coffee came with a donut hole which I don’t think was vegan. You may want to ask!

Delicious and affordable Breaky

Nice atmosphere and knowledgeable, helpful staff. I asked for a vegan breaky bagel, staff said any bagel can be made vegan by swapping meat for a hashbrown (no extra cost). I had BLGT.

Skip the line for Fergburger and just come get a vegan burger at Balls and Bangles! I got the Vegan Cheese Burgel which is the impossible burger, vegan cheese, pickles, pickled onions, and yummy sauce. I picked the rosemary sea salt bagel. This was possibly the best vegan burger I've ever had! Super delicious! Also got an almond milk dirty Chai which was also really good. The staff was very friendly and helpful. I definitely recommend this place.

I would give this 5 stars if happy cow would let me

Impossible burgel was absolutely amazing. I would queue up for this. 10/10 so good. Also fried pickles are the bomb!
Didn't try any donut options so can't speak to that sorry #Veganuary

Pros: Tastiest thing we've eaten in Queenstown

Cons: Pricey - $20 for the impossible bagel

One good bagel one bad

The falafel bagel was really good 😊 we asked for a vegan cheese bagel and they didn’t cook it properly leaving the cheese unmelted (not even warm) making it unpleasant to eat

Coffee is good ☕️

Cons: No vegan donuts

Nice little breakfast

Good coffee, nice bagel, friendly staff.
Liked that you can choose the bagel base. Missed a whole wheat option, though.

If you order "The One" obviously the bacon will not be swapped for hash browns, it will just not be put on it (does not make thr bagel cheaper).

Seem to have recently moved, location quite a construction site feel to it.

It's Queenstown, prices are accordingly.

Lovely place

The only reason for this place not being good enough is because there are not vegan donuts. Had the Cheese Burgel and it was great.

Cons: No vegan donuts

Lots of vegan options here. I had the Cheese Burgle and got to choose a bagel to have it on instead of a bun which was a bonus in my eyes. The aioli that comes with the fries is vegan too. Lovely service.

Pros: Lots of vegan options, Friendly service, Affordable

Cons: No vegan donuts (sad face)
