Stunning!

It never occurred to me that I'd need to book for breakfast, but luckily the friendly and efficient staff found a seat for me anyway. The food is excellent, and good value. On face value, it looked a little pricey, but the meal was HUGE. If they could just source some free -range eggs, I'd be... read more

When ever I go to Christchurch I try and have one visit to Drexels. Wish they were in Dunedin. I forget how busy and popular they are but I have never had to wait too long. The food is hearty with lots of choices but I always have the special. Bottomless coffee frequently topped up and nicely whipped butter to... More

The food is good quality and the servings are huge. Best to make a booking as it was packed mid-morning on a Monday! We had Huevos Rancheros and Pancakes; couldn't finish the Huevos and just got through 2 pancakes (Iowa-style). Authentic Canadian Maple syrup was extra and you only got a thimble full - don't bother.

You have to book here for sunday breakfast, which we did and were taken on time. Very busy indeed with walk ins having to wait. All our meals were of a high standard and plentiful. Toast, butter and jam was complimentary.We didn't need any lunch that day either. Best place ever for a cooked breakfast. Recommend to anyone.
