After taking our overseas visitors to Provisions rather than a fancy winery they were delighted with our choice, we all loved the relaxed atmosphere, the wine and food were good, the service was very quick and the staff attentive and friendly, A very enjoyable lunch.

There are many amazing things about Arrowtown; the beautiful scenic walks along the Arrow river, the dramatic mountains and the vistas in every direction Provisions offers great coffee, amazingly creative food and a wonderful selection of preserves Sit outside on a sunny day and there are not many better ways to plan your day's activities

Took morning coffee.....and cake, here. Quirky place with good array of baked onsite foods. Some arty nick nacks on sale by locals too. Nice outside area for days when weather is good. Been three times this visit. Say no more.

beautiful food and I am very fussy about my coffee. They made it perfectly and with a beautiful smile. Spotless W/C. was reading a book about the area and there was no pressure for me to leave. Would love to go again and will do when in the South Island.

We came for breakfast - great choices - whitebait, chilli scrambled eggs, poached eggs with any number of sides. It came quickly and was delicious. Then there's the baked goods - so much to choose from - loved the doughnut with lemon curd! And the coffee was superb!

We had not intended to have lunch just coffee but the bread, the rolls, cakes etc all looked so good and " magic slice " was wicked.
