“Really nice food!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 21, 2014

Food was really extraordinary I thought, we had a nice refreshing lunch in here and you could really see the innovative side of the dish designs. However I thought that the service has let the experience down a bit, didnt feel as welcome as we could have done. Overall thumbs up :)

“Amazing”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 19, 2014

Saw the trip advisor comments, so hunted this out you need to follow the signs and it's kinda up some stairs in an alley we walked right past and had to double back, I had corn fritters and they were amazing the flavours with them were superb and great coffee too... The decor is unique I loved it and the staff super friendly and attentive, thank you we will definitely be back.

“Great find!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 18, 2014

Wondering the streets of arrowtown and came across this little gem! The staff, food, wine, chefs and salted caramel cheesecake where phenomenal! Tucked away off the street but take the time to find this great place for a fantastic meal! Thanks for having us :)

Recommended by a local and that's always a good thing! Waitress was great fun, food and coffee, excellent - best breakfast I've had in a long time. But don't expect the same ol same ol menu!

“Upbeat”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 10, 2014

A friend took me to this little hideaway. It was busy, upbeat and the staff were great!! Not your average café, food is quirky, has a twist to it and very tasty! A nice surprise
