Great pies! You can usually get good pies in New Zealand, and these are up there with the best. They keep baking during the day, so just wait a little if your favourite isn’t there at first.

This bakery was opened pretty early in the morning and we were able to grab a coffee before we hit the road. The lady working was lovely and the coffees tasted great!

Possibly the best sausage rolls on the South island. Great coffee too. If you find yourself peckish in Arrowtown, head here.

These bacon and egg burgers are loaded full of bacon, egg, hash brown, sausage and the yummiest relish on a freshly baked bun. We had 3 while staying in the area for 4 days! $7 bargain..

ALthough small, this is a great stop for those after a decent coffee and some delicious food. We tried the custard block (vanilla slice) and came back later for lunch. We even took home a sausage roll each for dinner. Yum!

Not sure why things have changed over the years, but they have. We visited as a family, bought 4 pies, 3 apple strudels, 1 apple pie, 1 custard danish and a loaf of bread. We asked for a knife to cut the pies in half...More
