Bought some bread and baked sweet treats for the way home - excellent all round! The service was prompt, even on a bank holiday Monday.

Enjoyed getting out of the cold in this place that almost looks like it is from the 50's inside. Fantastic variety of pies as well as other food and the staff were nice. Superb, thanks.

A quaint cafe in Arrowtown with outdoor seating. Lovely service. 17 years since leaving the UK and seriously had the BEST "breakfast buttie" with HP sauce. Reasonable prices for a tourist town.

You don't come here for the atmosphere, it's plain inside with a pleasant outside area for those lovely sunny winter days. However the vegetable soup was superb, the steak & mushroom pie to die for. My wife had to resort to severe restraints to stop...me following up the steak pie with a curry pie. You won't find much better coffee either. It's unpretentious, just a good cafe well situated at the entrance to the main street. Been there everyday while here.More

I’ve been coming here for a while and the food and service is normally good. Just recently the new staff and owners are just really miserable. It’s nice to have someone with a smile on their face. You’re not even acknowledged when you walk in...and when they finally get round to serving you they don’t look interested and just look like they don’t want to be thereMore

We’d wandered through the village looking for something filling but not heavy to eat for lunch and came across this little place tucked in there. A good old fashioned bakery! Yummy toasted sandwiches, a cream doughnut that took me back to my childhood and an...Oreo slice. Good coffee too, and a good selection of other off the shelf drinks. A great place to have a light lunch with great tastes. Would definitely go again - need to try the pies next time...More

Called in for some lunch after arriving in Arrowtown. Place was pretty busy and we decided to sit outside instead of wading through queues to reach a table. Ordered tea and cheese rolls. Took a while (they were very busy) but came nice and hot....Enjoyed food and tea and would go back if in the area againMore

Easter Sunday today and very busy. After Queenstown asking New Zealanders to visit we did but Arrowtown Bakery and Cafe counter staff member seemed to find us inconvenient in her day. Rude. Food was ok as were other staff.

Got our lunch here as we have done on other visits. Very nice food but the milkshakes were a bit average, the mixture was all at the top so got very little until everything settled. Always enjoy a visit so hopefully was just someone learning...as we would go back again.More

Stopped here for some lunch after gold panning. Mince and cheese was best I’ve had, price was reasonable
