Lovely cafe for coffee or lunch. Slightly away from the main shopping area (which is a plus) with a great menu for lunch and great options for coffee and snack.

We had morning coffee here and the only disappointment was that I couldn't eat a doughnut and a lamington and a sticky bun (by the way the sticky bun was to die for).

We were really impressed with the lunch menu so we came back for lunch and loved the choices which suited the three adults present and also had good options for the kids.

Great service, great food and not the normal inflated Arrowtown prices. No wonder it was full of locals enjoying the sun on the deck and the food on their plates.

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.
