Great food and service

A friendly café with a good selection of food. Specials change on a regular basis and are always worth trying. Service is always quick and courteous. A great little place.

Been here loads of times- food always freshly prepared to order, tasty and hot and good value. Best coffee in Christchurch- five star hygiene rating and staff lovely and attentive- this is a proper little place that deserves the best.

My dad's a fuss pot so for him to praise somewhere is rare, we all had a panini each, soft bread lots of filling, hot coffee and friendly service. It's off the main highstreet but worth the walk out(only a 5 min walk)

Had breakfast at The Coffee Pot last week and have to say it was absolutely terrible. THe sausages were tough and the scrambled egg was the worst I have tasted for a very long time.

We eat here frequently and have always had very good food. The cafe is spotless and the food freshly prepared to order- always tasty and piping hot. The menu has something for every one and the service is personable and the business is family run and the best in Christchurch.

With such nice service its a shame that the breakfast was unmemorable. The sausage was particularly bad - not a lot of meat evident and was that horrible rubbery consistency. The rest was freshly cooked. Coffee ok. Toast was cheap white sliced. Would have been happy to pay a little bit more for better ingredients.

Excellent light lunch here yesterday with family, including a toddler. The staff are friendly, and very responsive to our needs. The food was freshly prepared, well presented and very tasty. A gem of a place. We will return!

This place is award winning as a cafe supposedly, it was pretty regular when I went for drinks and some cake and very pokey, a bit cramped for seating.
