I have eaten at this cafe before and always found the value to be reasonable. On this occasion however this was far from the case. I had a pesto, chicken and bacon panini, one of my favourite cafe meals. Unfortunately all I could taste was...the pesto. It takes a lot to mask bacon and onion. I scooped a table spoon of pesto off each side of the bread and still all I could taste was the pesto which had soaked the bread on heating. Truly the worst meal I have paid for. I don't think I will ever look at pesto in the same way.More

We stopped in for a bite to eat and all five of us found something delicious. I found the Mousetrap really nice and it would have been greedy to get another. Sitting outside in the sunshine with delicious food was a pleasure.

I'm a bit of a pie connoisseur and having had a pie from Arrowtown Bakery & Cafe can confirm they are at the top of my list! I'll be fighting with myself not to go there everyday. We tried the lamb and mint and the...steak and cheese and both were absolutely superb! Also had some cheese rolls which were also delicious. Pies had the most succulent, lean but moist and tasty meat without a big quantity of gravy. Excellent value as well for the size and quality. Friendly, efficient service as well.More

The pies and hot food are excellent as evidenced by the queues waiting to get it! There is a huge range of pies and I am determined to eventually try them all, I have yet to try one that I didn't enjoy!

Enjoyed a late lunch sitting outside in the sun. Fairly standard cabinet food and good coffee. Located in the historic village area.

Called in today for quick lunch at the AB cafe. Shared lamb and mint pie and Thai green chicken pie (1/2 each on hubbys plate and mine). Both of us commented that both pies were tasty, delicious and the puff pastry light (not soggy) and...served hot. Highly recommend both pies. They were served on plates with cutlery. Barista coffees were good. Will return again. Good pricing.More
