The big attraction here is the garden, with tables on the lawn and on the deck. Great place to be when the weather is warm. It's just one block from the main Buckingham Street area and worth the walk for a coffee and something sweet. Some street parking outside. I found the barista friendly and helpful on a 2pm weekday visit. I believe the cafe can be very busy at times, mainly 11am-1pm, but it was relaxed and quiet when I was there. No large tourist groups, several tables to choose from. I looked at the lunch menu and nothing really appealed. Meal prices seemed at the high end, although I'm told only quality ingredients are used. My coffee was very good, as was the sticky bun. The sparrows will be your close friends in exchange for some crumbs.

A great hidden gem in Arrowtown. It has a wonderful outdoor area, great coffee and a really good selection of food (both cabinet and menu).

Without doubt the best café in Arrowtown, great coffee, a mean breakfast roll and the muesli is pretty good too. Whitebait sandwich in season is worth a go too.
Staff are excellent and really friendly, it has got really busy over recent times and the garden eating area will be getting a good workout as the temperature warms up but the staff remain friendly and calm.

The menu has always been great with changes happening on a regular basis, all delicious. I have to comment that last time we visited the menu had been altered, and now instead of being on a paper notice board its printed out on an a4 and has VERY limited choices. Although they have food in the salad bar, this no longer our favourite lunch/brunch venu . Decided nothing here for us,and left, which is disappointing as we have been regular customers since provisions first opened. Pease change the menu back and remember the old saying "if it's not broken, ........"
