Great little cafe with excellent coffee. Soup of the day was outstanding given how cold it was outside

A lovely cafe in quaint Arrowtown. Indoor and outdoor seating in a pleasant leafy garden. Excellent home-baked sticky buns, scones, pies, chocolate cakes and breads. Delicious but at a price. Some of the cakes cost $7.50.

Slightly off the main Arrowtown strip, the cafe has a nice garden and deck sitting area. Food is fresh, wholesome and tasty. Good coffee and service as well. Worth a visit for breakfast or lunch.

Reasonable coffee but massively indifferent service. Ordered a smoothie on a warm summer's day, but didn't expect the drink to be as warm as the day. How hard is it to use cold milk? No apology when returned either.

It has the most divine sticky buns i've ever eaten. if you happen to visit Queenstown, you need to visit the nearby picturesque Arrowtown, and in Arrowtown you must visit this cafe. There's a really pretty garden at the back which would be... More

After taking our overseas visitors to Provisions rather than a fancy winery they were delighted with our choice, we all loved the relaxed atmosphere, the wine and food were good, the service was very quick and the staff attentive and friendly, A very enjoyable lunch.
