A great space to get a casual bite for lunch. I enjoyed a kiwi classic steak and cheese pie from this spot. It was well priced and tasty. I would definitely head there again if in the area.

We make a point of stopping in to the Arrowtown Bakery every time we visit. The food is delicious, as you can tell by the number of people going in and out. The setting also provides plenty of places to stop and eat while taking in the wonderful scenery of the area.

The title says it all. The pies make a great quick snack and are substantial enough for lunch. The custard squares are superb.

This place has amazing meat pies. The lamb and mint pie is just glorious. Buy a pie and sit on the green to watch the world go by, just bliss. Cheap lunch in a beautiful location.

Great selection of fresh breads, filled rolls, hot savouries, cakes, and the museli slice was the best I've tasted. Thank you.
