Charming cafe

We sat on a back verandah of a house-style cafe in Arrowtown and enjoyed the coffee and sunshine. The service was very friendly and we had a very relaxed cuppa. We didn't order food as we were there early, but it looked very good.

Had tea and a lovely apricot slice on a perfect day. Friendly service, sitting in the sun. A perfect experience.

We had a couple of drinks, a savoury scone and a sticky bun at the lovely little cafe. The scone was delicious, the bun wasn't that noteworthy. Still we had very friendly and fast service. There was a clear attention to detail, by the pleasant smell of the bathroom. It was lovely to sit outside with little birds around us.

We had lunch in the garden at this home turned café. In true Arrowtown style, this café was laid back, relaxing and importantly the food was great. Can't go past the quiche and slices.

We went here on advice from some locals. My wife had a salmon bagel which was very good. Sticky buns are worth visiting here for. Coffee and tea good. Service good. The setting in the garden is very good.

Relaxed with great service. Small oopsy with my first coffee here was remedied asap and not even because I asked!! Brunch was nice and we... More

I ordered poach eggs on toast with hollandaise sauce (your typical eggs benedict). The eggs were watery but the worst part was the brioche which tasted like it had been dipped in sugar. The hollandaise was runny and tasted of vinegar. I have never had a worst breakfast. My family love this place, however, and the coffee is delicious and... More

We heard about this place in the best way - through word of mouth. After a long drive from Milford Sound, we stopped by Provisions of Arrowtown for their famous sticky buns but were disappointed to find out that they were sold out! But understandably so - we walked in after lunch. We stayed for lunch anyway and it was... More

Arrowtown has a special feel of its own. The food was great, the coffee was well up to standard. Would recommend this place.
