We had lunch here with 2 other couples. Everyone loved their meals ! The real standout was the Crispy Prawn Japanese pancake. Try it!

This is a great place for breakfast. Food quality fantastic. Service also very attentive - staff actually checks regularly if everything ok or anything else needed. Highly recommended- this place can cut it anywhere.

We went for Saturday brunch at the Chop Shop and had both the specials to share. The food was awesome, great flavours, and we had impeccable service from Henry who really made the experience for us. Would definitely return and recommend!

This place gets busy, but there is a good reason. The coffee's great, the staff are friendly and the food is amazing! If you're in Arrowtown, or Queenstown with transport, The Chop Shop is a great cafe to try.

This was a great sunny day, deck and meal with friends. I chose, and would recommend the tacos as an excellent meal.
