Terrific, tucked away, treats and food - great little cafe down the end of Arrowtown's main drag, with some nice outdoor seating in a quiet location. The food was very nice and the seafood Bisque soup was - absolutely fantastic and easily the nicest soup...we experienced whilst visiting the south island. Highly recommended as a good coffee/breaky/brunch/lunch option. Would definitely return if visiting the area.More

Best day time cafe by far. In historic precinct in beautiful old building with strong coffee and amazing food what’s not to like. It’s autumn and the sun is not yet fully over the hill so brunch seems a good way to start the day...before heading to Kawerau Bridge on our ebikes. Predictably I go for the French Toast and it is with it. Invented by the chef baked brioche with custard layered with rhubarb and plums. Superb.More
