Having enjoyed a sunny afternoon wandering the historic town of Arrowtown, lunch at Bonjour of soup and bread was a little disappointing. My wife and I ordered two bowls of soup with bread which took over half an hour to arrive on a day and at a time where the restaurant was half full. Never mind, we would order the lemon tart (a favorite dessert) and finish on a high. Sadly the tart was anything but tart and the filling had been overcooked resulting in curdling rather than a smooth creamy texture.

Still we had a wonderful day in Arrowtown and I am sure that Bonjour was just having an off day.....but please look into the tart recipe and watch the cooking time!

We stopped in here for some dessert and we wish we had of chose here for lunch instead! The crepes were delicious! It is a little on the pricey side though, two crepes and two coffees were over $40.

It's also pretty cool to hear the staff and some of the regular customers talk French to each other.

The menu is a cliché : it offers loads of different meals, and appears a bit messy. Decoration is in bad taste.
But you can buy nice cheeses and typical delicatessen.

Nice French atmosphere and food. Good for a sweat or cupa. Staff are friendly and helpful. We only had afternoon tea here, so cant comment on meals, but those that we saw others had looked nice.
