If you want to try a pie that is slightly different (or your usual steak or mince), then this is a must! I tried the bolognaise pie - it was very tasty!

Stumbled across this Bakery while on holiday in NZ and we all tried the Pies. Sensational! One of the best i've ever had. Came back the next day for another and also tried the real fruit icecream which was AMAZING! I had the Blueberry. However, both days we had to contend with a sour faced toothless lady who wasn't helpful at all. We asked for a pie that she had sold out of and she just said ive got this this and that and thats it. We saw a big tray of fresh pies coming out of the oven and said what about those ones and she said NO you cant have them. Not helpful at all. The girls at the cafe next door (connected to the bakery) we a bit nicer but not very cheery or talkative. It actually put us off going back again even though we loved the food.

Pies and yummy things galore. Great coffee too. Part of our daily arrow town routine! Sit outside and soak up the culture of this lovely town.

Took some friends of ours to the bakery for lunch, and the four of us ordered pies, paid for them and sat at a table. After a longish wait three of us got the meals and the one who had ordered the venison pie, didn't get his. We waited, and waited and finally called the waitress over and she said she would check. She came back and said, "we don't have any venison pies". By this time the three of us had finished our meal and when I asked her why she didn't come and tell us so we could have ordered something else for our friend, she just gave a bit of a shrug and said sorry.

Not good enough, it's not a large cafe and it should have been easy enough to figure out that as soon as the order went out to the kitchen, the waitress should have come back and told us they had run out of pies, and not just taken the money and not bothered about it.

There is quite a bit of competition in Arrowtown and I think the bakery only gets by because of its reputation for having nice food, which they do.

Pity about the service. It's a tourist town, be better guys, don't let Arrowtown down.

After a questionable degree of poor service from a neigbouring restaurant I was left to conjure up a Gluten Free, Dairy Free birthday cake with 72 hours notice. Not only were Arrowtown Bakery gracious about it, their cake was absolutely delightful, and very reasonable priced. Bravo!
