“Great breakfast but you won't need lunch!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 20, 2013

Great breakfast of pancakes and berries but absolutely huge portions. Good fast friendly service. The menu was pretty extensive, my only comment would be that the coffee was a bit strong but then the long black in New Zealand seems to be that way - and I am a coffee addict!

“Awesome pies”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 8, 2013 via mobile

Most probably the best venison pie I've had in many years - the full breakfast is well worth a try too. Coffee was nice, but too cold - well below the recommended temperature.

Thankyou for your great review so sorry you were let down by the coffee! Lets face it no one likes a cold coffee, me especially, we will seek out the culprit and make them up their temp.

“Yum real fruit ice-cream!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 4, 2013 via mobile

Made a short stop at the Arrowtown bakery for an ice cream - the staff were friendly, service quick considering the number of people there and the ice cream delicious! The rest of the food looked great too and very reasonably priced.
