Nestled in quiet and seemingly conservative Arrowtown ("Roo Town" to locals) this fantastic refurbished cafe/eatery/meeting place is full of clever decor, a new and international eclectic menu and fabulous friendly service. Have the Apple fritters or the Turkish eggs. Of course the coffee is perfect. Child friendly but full of helpful locals and people who stay there all day. Fantastic on a rainy day - in fact plan a movie at Dorothy Browns - and stop into Chop Chop after!

Three breakfasts in one week, we just can't bring ourselves to go anywhere else! This little find is tucked away, down an alleyway, up the stairs, and if there's a wait for a table it is definitely worth it! Awesome fit out, service exceptional, really exceptional, and the food... so incredibly yummy. From the Greek eggs to the corn fritters, the dumplings to the Huevos Rancheros, it's all good. Coffee too, brilliant. Well done guys. Highly recommended.
