Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

We enjoyed a casual lunch at the Arrowtown Bakery. The chicken salad roll was very satisfying and delicious. The savoury muffin was also very good. We were able to dine outside which was delightful. It was a warm day so the umbrella shade was appreciated.

OK, NZ pies were not my favorite food. Most had too much gravy. So, when I saw the Thai chicken pie, I just had to try it. It's basically a curry chicken dish in a pie instead of rice. It was by far my favorite...pie during my trip to NZ. Busy place but the line moved quickly.More

We found this an excellent spot to stop and grab a bite to eat for breakfast as well as getting some sandwiches to put into our backpacks for our lunch out on our walks. It is very convenient, open early in the morning, and has...excellent bacon butties, as well as sandwiches on super fresh buns full of great ingredients. Very tasty baked goods as well.More

Whilst driving through to Queenstown we decided to stop at Arrowtown and the first café we came upon was the bakery. My table ordered meat pies and coffee which were so nice that we went in and ordered dessert, something we don't usually do. We...had an apple slice and a custard slice which were also amazing. There are plenty of outside seating in an area to the side of the bakery. It is in an alleyway section but it is a nice sunny location which is out of the cold breeze. I cant wait to call in again the next time that I am through the area.More

Just after a quick bit to eat. Range looked good, service was none existent. We had a pie and muffin. Both were great tasting and fresh, the place is just let down by no customer service, one of the staff even walked away after starting...to take our order and expected another to take over and it wasn’t very busyMore

The female young staff member on shift Sunday 30th July early afternoon was a grumpy unfriendly rude person. We were not the only people to comment. The pies were great but would have been more enjoyable if the staff were also.

Firstly it was so hard to choose what to have because everything looked incredible - very fresh, warm, lots of choice. In the end we had the breakfast butties and they were the best I’ve ever had. The bakery / cafe has a family run,...friendly, cosy vibe. I wish I was coming back to Arrow Town so I could try the pies! Yum. Deffo worth a visit!More

What a bakery, our best breakfast since arriving in NZ. My wife chose a full breakfast which surprisingly came in a bread roll, which was also very tasty. Couldn’t resist a sausage roll takeaway for later on! Seating area outside amongst the lovely old houses...and the trees in red and yellow!More

Arrowtown was really busy on the Monday we went there with most of the cafes shut. One cafe was open and chokka so we made our way down to this bakery. You order in the shop and sit outside and wait. It didn’t take long....Fantastic coffee! And the breakfast butty was the BEST! Hot and quick. Highly recommend!!More

The meal and food is great. Encourage you to try their pies ( mushroom or steak, or other), fairly nice home made, with good crust and filling. Better than some pies tried elsewhere in Te Anau or Wanaka. Drink choice is also good including coffee....Water can also be served. Service was cheerful and engaging. Imagine they get very busy and at times short staffed but this didn't seem to stop the guy who served us who made us laugh. ( 'its pretty hot and busy actually!') The outside area is also quite nice to eat in. The surrounds are also very pleasant to look at including birds and people. Overall would say it is very good, and would bring friends to the area to this cafe and bakery. Goes to show the service and product in Arrowtown can be worthwhile. Suggest. Thumbs Up.More

Beautiful fresh whitebait, butties, coffee to take out. Efficient friendly service in this busy little spot. Sweet treats looked delicious. Dog walkers running in to grab a custard slice testimony to this

My siblings & I always stop here when passing through Arrowtown. The pies are great but wish they’d bring back the chicken & apricot pie. Be aware the pies vanish fast during 11.30-1pm and they don’t always make more, so flavours might be limited. The...custard square is always good.More
