    Arrowtown Bakery & Cafe

    On a lovely sunny autumn day this busy little cafe was the perfect place to sit and take in the atmosphere. We chose to sit outside in Ballarat Arcade, where the seating was off the main thoroughfare. Service prompt and friendly.

    Favorite Dish: Coffee and scones - Yum!

    Stables Arrowtown--nice place, great lunch

    Can't describe the inside since it was a gorgeous day and we sat outside at one of their several tables next to Buckingham Green.

    Quick, helpful service, range of choices, including wine.

    Favorite Dish: Favorite dish--besides the Two Paddocks "Picnic" Riesling--was a crispy Bella Donna pizza: Smoky bacon, mushrooms, garlic, blue cheese, & avocado. Flavors complement each other well!

    The Stables Restaurant: A Weekend Affair

    by TomorrowsAngel Updated Apr 4, 2011

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    al fresco dining

    The Stables Restaurant and Wine Bar is situated on the main street, but tucked back from the road, overlooking the Town Green. It has a friendly relaxed atmosphere with efficient and attentive service provided by staff.
    There are all day, lunch and dinner menus. Also, a selection of fresh cafestyle baking each day - was boysenberry muffins when we went there.
    The Stables is housed in one of Arrowtown's original stone buildings of local schist with kauri roof beams and an open fire inside and is apparently one of the region's best examples of stonestabling.

    Favorite Dish: We went for brunch and shared a plate of herb and garlic breads to start with which was nice. Mains we had: kiwi brekkie (tomatoes, bacon, rosti, mushrooms, poached eggs and toasted ciabatta), greek salad and spanish omelette.
    I had the kiwi fry-up which was great.

    Cafe Mondo: Sheltered nice location

    by kiwi Updated Mar 28, 2007

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Caf�� Mondo is at the right end of this arcade.

    Cafe Mondo is situated at the top of the Ballarat Arcade, just metres from the main street of Arrowtown. Nice and sheltered, offering nice ambience and surroundings. Interesting menu with outside dining which is pleasant in summertime. Magazines to read.
    I found though, that the service was slap-happy and staff were lacking friendliness and manners. Our lunch was practically dumped in front of us and the waitress was gone without so much as a smile or any eye contact at all.

    Favorite Dish: I always love to eat veggie fritters for lunch, especially when served with sour cream and salad. My veggie fritters were not even fully cooked and quite mushy and raw inside. The salad was very plain and uninviting.

    The Gardener's Cottage Caf��

    This little cottage café is rather interesting. Firstly the food is very good. If you are lucky enough to be here on a sunny day, sit outside, otherwise there is limited seating inside.
    You will find a super selection of gifts and household items on display as you walk thru the back of the cottage. Cards and kitchen as well as household items for sale here. Also some garden outdoor pots etc. I'm sure you will find something you like here.

    Previously knows as "The Gardner's Cottage Café".

    Favorite Dish: Spinach and Feta Filo, with salad.

    Pannikins Cafe: Great big breakfasts at Pannikins

    by allikat Updated Jan 16, 2007

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Pannikins Cafe, Arrowtown

    We were staying in Queenstown, and had decided to drive out to Arrowtown for breakfast before spending the day there. We chose Pannikins Cafe, sat right on the main street but accessed via a tiny indoor courtyard of other small shops.

    Pannikins is bright and cheery, spotlessly clean and the staff there were friendly and good humoured. The boys were encouraged to have the full breakfast, and who were they to argue? I stuck with my enduring habit of choosing eggs benedict if it is on the menu and if it's not yet 2pm. Everyone was happy with their meal - the full breakfasts were huge, and the eggs benedict was excellent. We sat for a while drinking coffee as outside it was raining and inside we were warm and chock full of eggs. I'd definitely head for Pannikins again next time I'm in Arrowtown.

    Favorite Dish: If you have an appetite on you, rip into the full breakfast - eggs, sausage, bacon, toast, hashbrown - the full Kiwi works. Pannikins will also see you through the rest of the day with sandwiches, cakes and other light meals.

    It was at Arrowtown Bakery that we finally found our recommended venison pie.

    It was recommended by a friend who studied in Christchurch during his university days. We were surprised that the shop was still around and still serving the tasty vension pie.

    You wont miss this bakery in this quaint historic town.

    the shed

    The Shed has yummy ice cream and burgers. It's nice to sit outside on the Green during summer having an ice cream in the sun.

    Crossroads (formerly The Stonewall Cafe) serves local cuisine with a good selection of NZ wine.
    You can sit inside amongst sepia photos of old Arrow and antiques from the area. Or outside under the shade of the birch trees running along the end of Buckingham Street watching the action on the main street.
