“Real food plus charm from people who know their stuff!”
Reviewed March 6, 2011

People who love good food cook good food and this small cafe in Arrowtown (recommended by a local) was a blessed discovery after a ghastly meal at Saffron the day before.
They have tastings for all the remakably delicious 'Provisions' chutneys made on site and shipped all over NZ (maybe the world??) and the coffee and cakes good.
And there is a charming garden setting to while away the time.
It's a bit hard to find, at the far end of the main street (away from the Chinese settlement) but worth asking directions to!
Nothing pretentious about the place but full of charm and heart.
and there is a nice blog review with pictures here that seems to say it all! http://crouchinggiraffe.blogspot.com/2010/07/my-newest-favourite-thing-provisions-in.html

“Great coffee, cakes and breads”
Reviewed March 3, 2011

Was recommended as a great place for good coffee by a local and not disappointed. Coffee was very good. Also purchased the fig and almond baguette which was delicious - thick with fruit and nuts and at only $4 very good value. The other breads and bagels looked very good as well. Provisions also sells other cakes and slices - both sweet and savoury - and also other lunch meals which I didn't try as I was only there for morning tea. Provisions is also known for jams and chutneys which you can buy there. I noticed a wine list of local Central Otago wines so I guess they also have a wine list. The cafe is situated just down from the main shopping area with inside and outside tables (the latter situated in a little quaint garden). Provisions was a great find and very good value.
