We make a point of going there whenever we are in the area as the food is always superb and fresh, and mostly locally sourced. There are some lovely options on the menu, a little different to what you find at all the chains, and all extremely tasty. We can never leave without a few treats such as their macarons,... More

This review is long overdue but we found Heartizans, a wonderful local independent deli with personality when searching for food for our wedding. They made recommendations and prepared us a great and reasonably priced selection of local cheeses for our wedding cheese cake to take to the Three Tuns and we got some really rave reviews from guests! We couldn't... More

This is a very friendly warm little place with well cooked food and welcoming owners who work very hard to make this a place to visit. Their deli selection is also great. As much as possible is locally sourced and food is cooked fresh, so you have to wait for it, which is much better than the usual warmed over... More

We were looking for a late lunch whilst wandering through Christchurch. The Heartizans Deli was welcoming and full of local produce. I ordered the home made mushroom soup which was delicious and full of flavour (the best mushroom soup I've ever had!) my boyfriend had a gammon ham, sweet chilli jam and brie toasted sandwich which was a good size...

It's in the middle if the high street and it's a small cafe and deli. The coffee is the best in Christchurch but the real treat is the food. Ian does most of the cooking and his two specialities are eggs and soup. When I say eggs I mean egg dishes - florentine, benedict, poached atop one of his glorious... More

Excellent selection of teas, food is very good with a good selection of gluten free options. Quite small inside but does takeout as well. Good option for a nice relaxed lunch.

We stopped here for breakfast. It was great to find a place that did free range bacon and eggs. The wide range of loose leaf teas was very pleasing and it was nice to have them served in pretty china tea pots and cups. The coffee was also good. Between us we had a bacon sandwich, eggs benedict royale (with... More

I really like this quirky little deli/cafe the trouble is you can easily walk past it, which you shouldn't. It's not very big and there's not a lot of space inside but it's lovely.
