Friendly staff and a good variety on the menu. Food was tasty (did give the wrong pie but it was still yummy).

Bakery treats were very nice. Pies also looked like they were to die for. Very reasonable place to eat in Arrowtown

Trust me I know my pies. When I flew in from Australia this was my first stop, I’ve been missing these little gems of greatness for years. Wasn’t disappointed, they were super tasty as always. Wish I could get them here.

We popped in to the bakery and bought 2 mince pies after reading the reviews on Trip Advisor. Honestly not sure what the fuss is about. The pies are okay (not great) but well overpriced and the service mediocre at best.

There was so much to choose from and it all looked and sounded lovely and what we had was. The fact that they were so busy, even at 11.30 speaks for itself. Unfortunately the iced coffees were at least half a tumbler of ice cubes.
