An excellent place to go have breakfast or lunch, combining a nice interior - fresh and clean with excellent service and food. You have to wait seated in a reserve area for a few minutes whilst they arrange you but we got a seat quickly and they took our orders quickly. You get complimentary toast which is a nice touch....

I had the crepe and partner had omelette-both were perfect and cooked to how we requested. these meals came with toast and we ordered filter... More

Make sure you book as it is well worth while. I visit this Restaurant every time I go to Christchurch and love it. Service and food are excellent. Coffee is great and the waffles :) can't get enough. No wonder my waist line is not shrinking.

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.
