A beautifully quaint cafe on Arrowtown's famous Buckingham St. Located in an original miners cottage and very well preserved! Brilliantly friendly staff and a wide selection of menu and cabinet food. Amazing Sticky Buns!

Really good light meals, pastries or a great coffee. We enjoyed the shaded outdoor garden for a light lunch and a glass of wine. I would highly recommend Provisions.

A regular visitor to Provisions and cant praise it enough Staff are top drawer, friendly and informed but often really busy. Allpress coffee is excellent. Black rice and ginger porridge on the brekkie menu is well worth straying from the norm for.

On the recommendation of our Motel host we had a most enjoyable lunch, sitting on the verandah overlooking the back garden. There is a good range of sandwiches, pies, pastries and light meals and it is also licensed. Good spot.

Lovely counter food, fast service, went midweek so it wasn't too busy. Their sticky buns really are too die for and coffee was good too.

Came one day before (5 minutes before closing at 4.55pm) and was brusquely told “we are closed”. Decided to give it a second try the next day and could not have found a friendlier crew. The sticky buns and coffee were good but not exceptional....More
