Recently in Arrowtown on business and was looking for a good coffee spot. Found The Chop Shop by chance and what a pleasant surprise to open the door and find a buzzing, warm eclectic space.

Ordered a coffee but would have had more save for lack of time - it was spot on and well made.

Would definitely come here again.

Incredibly good food and we didn't even plan for lunch here. Glad we just walked into it, and was totally satisfied by the awesome lunch. We had pork hock which was the bomb and corn fritter was good too but it's a tad too sweet.
The coffee were good too.

We ate breakfast here 4 days in a row. The coffee was great and the food amazing. Don't go past the pork hock hash and Turkish eggs. Staff are relaxed & fun, and you'll be well fed for $25.

Visiting Arrowtown on holiday and have been here 3 days out of 4! Should have been here for the 4th. Have worked out way through the menu with our 2 children and everything is amazing. The blue cod taco to die for, the Turkish eggs curious but yum yum yum, the pork hock hash with an exciting kick, the pancakes with textures and combinations of flavours, the corn fritters a sweet sensation. Yup we pretty much tried everything and will be back to try the rest. The icing on the cake watching the chef in action in the open kitchen and the friendly, bubbly staff. 10/10.

I had a delicious Blue Cod Taco and sampled the excellent Prawn Linguini. We were served by very friendly and efficient staff. I loved the decor, especially the cool 70s art in the restroom and Bicycle wheel chandeliers. Awesome!
