We came here as a group of 8 with hangovers and had all our various cravings satisfied.

All delicious! It was cold and there was... More

I didn't feel like a full meal for lunch so spent some time trying to decide which of the pies to try. That and a coffee from next door made a nice lunch.

Both the lamb and the steak pies were out of this world. The mint in the lamb pie was a good touch. I also recommend the baguette and carrot cake.

We had the pleasure of enjoying the Arrowtown Bakery on a snowy morning which made it just magical. Great food and good coffee and a warm friendly atmosphere. :-)

What is it about Arrowtown and it's food scene? How can such a small village serve up so many good food outlets? These pies are amongst the best I've ever tasted and you actually feel guilty paying so little for something so good. Green curry pie with real bite, lamb and mint with a good dollop of mint and on... More
