Went for a treat, didn't book but still got a table at 8.30. Was busy so would recommend booking. Food was served promptly and well presented. Waitress friendly and helpful. Bottomless coffee was checked on and refilled. Food was great, awesome variety on menu so caters for everyone.

Not in Christchurch very often but try and dine at Drexel's whenever we are there. Good food, service and value for money. Will be back if the opportunity arises.

Drexels is the best place for breakfast. The meals are huge and set you up for the rest of the day. Service is great. Be sure to book as it is usually busy. Huge variety to choose from and fun to watch the cooks at work in the kitchen.

Service is friendly, prompt and not overbearing. The menu is comprehensive and should cover most breakfast needs. Large group breakfasts seem to be no problem and food is well presented and arrives quickly. Good place to start the day for business or leisure.

After having three breakfasts at Drexels Wellington, I just had to have breakfast here with my work collegue from Christchurch. I have to say that it is equally as fantastic as the Wellington one. We both had Benedict, which was perfectly cooked and my modified order (one with bacon, one with salmon, plus half a mushrooms and half a sausages)... More

We always come here for breakfast when we are in Christchurch. A traditional diner and Christchurch institution - Always busy and always good. The breakfast burrito is a favourite though everything we have had has been good. Nice touch that they bring you some toast to eat while you wait for your food. You really want to book a table...

Always a nice place to visit. Clean with good service and nice food. Sometimes it's a little slow, but it's part of the deal. Recommend that you stop by and try it.
