Come for the quirky decor stay for the amazing coffee. These guys are not just passing through town looking for a job they care about the customer and what they serve. Its the new local.

Tonight we enjoyed a private meal with friends and as much as I am tempted to keep it a closely guarded secret ... this new cafe/restaurant is an absolute cracker! The service from our host was first class and the 7 course meal outstanding - our warmest compliments to the two chefs in the kitchen. This restaurant was a real surprise and I cannot recommend it highly enough. Well done! Without exception we were all blown away with the quality of the meal and the service.

The Chop Shop is one of Arrowtowns newest restaurants and it has the locals talking. A fabulous addition to our dining options in Arrowtown. Once was Joes Garage, then Lost cafe, NOW a fabulous Brunch/Lunch restaurant.Vietnamese, Asian, French and just fabulous food. A must do in Arrowton. Check out the decor ! You wont be dissapointed.

Found this place after walking around on a recent trip was closing time had a quick chat to staff looked promising. Came back very next day and was pleasantly surprised. Vivacious blonde lady whisked us (3) in and gave us everything we needed. Decent selection of items to cover brunch and lunch. look out for daily specials. I ordered 2 serves of Turkish Eggs and the special Ham Hock Poached Egg special. Turkish Eggs- Standout dish WOW (i saw a review saying the wanted to lick the plate) I was trying to savour every last bit and am still dreaming of the flavours.
The Chef was very personable and the staff are all so onto it. Great mix of all aspects that hardly ever combine perfectly. Will definitely be back when down your way.
