Drexels is the best place in Christchurch for breakfast/brunch there is nothing I can fault except it's so busy and you must book to get in, that's because it's so good with great service to.

A great diner fix if you are an expatriate. Drexel's has all the trimmings you'd expect in a classic American breakfast joint.

Consistently good food, efficient friendly staff, child friendly, unlimited coffee, and you can get in without a booking if you're prepared to wait.

After the earthquake in Christchurch, I thought I'd never see Drexel's again. I was so happy to discover they found a new location, when I last visited Christchurch.

We visited Drexel's for the first time. It was a great experience. Had not booked but only waited a few minutes before a table was available for us. The staff were very very friendly and helpful. Food was superb and wonderfully cooked. We were amazed at the size of the breakfast. Great value for money. Certainly didn't need any lunch.

Went here early for a breakfast celebration with close and extended family. Had a wide age range and the staff were very accommodating with the toddler. Not very busy so it meant we had waitstaff regularly checking on us. Big portions of food and well cooked. Everything was freshly made. Well done.
