Sat at the bar watched the chefs cook everything from fresh. Lovely Irish waitress was all over things in the restaurant and made sure we will be back!

A fun rustic Arrowtown cafe for breakfast or lunch with all the kiwi classics revived to help you feel it’s healthy. Gluten free friendly. Be ready for a wait at peak times. You are offered drinks and told on arrival how long the wait is.

A lady we met at our previous accommodation in Wanaka recommended the coffee at Chop Shop. The coffee was good but the meals that we each had were all fantastic: some of the nicest meals we ever had. Highly recommended.
