Yes, it was the best, however it was the only coffee we tried so couldn't honestly comment! The sticky buns however were sublime. The cabinet food was overflowing with the... More

Having been to the Provisions store in Cromwell I had high expectations of this café, especially trading under the Provisions name. The food was great but the café was very noisy, unpleasantly so. I expect in summer when the outdoor seating is in use it would be a very pleasant place to dine but in winter with the little house... More

I have been here a number of times now. It is always very good. You can try their various products out the back. I usually have Eggs Benedict. You have to ask for it. It isn't on their menu board. Their menu is written up on the wall. The service is always very efficient and friendly. Great food. Well priced.... More

Obscenely good sticky buns they claim? So we had to try. Yes, yes they are obscenely good. But we also bought a brownie. Do yourself a favour. Best Damn brownie you'll ever eat. And gf friendly!

This was the busiest cafe in Arrowtown very few people in town as it is between seasons. Would appear mainly coals as they had dogs outside and mixed people. Very impressed with coffee and the club sandwich is best I have ever had a meal in itself. Probably a bit pricey but in tourist Mecca but staff friendly chatty manner... More

This cafe is exceedingly cute. Coffee has good quality, the savory scones were average but the pea and blue cheese salad was yummy! It is a busy placr and we managed to get a table - 4 adults and 2 toddlers. Strangely for cafes targeting this market it had only one high chair which was odd. Also service wise the... More

We had one of our best breakfast in New Zealand here. The take away bread is a must too. It is just one block off the main strip.
