Could it be the next franchise

Loved the experience of having a menu that has soooooo many options. Loved being waited on and topped up with coffee as they walk by. Clean friendly, love the buzz and the amazing pancakes .Don't love that they always booked and I struggle to get an opening on a few occasions. Franchise please :-D

Unfortunately our breakfast wasn't very good this time which is disappointing as we went last year and it was fantastic. The pancakes were undercooked and could still taste the batter. The service was also pretty poor. I asked for a hash brown on the side and got hollandaise sauce instead and when I asked the waitress to help she seemed... More

This must be one of the best breakfast restaurants in Christchurch. A very extensive menu to cater for all tastes and reasonably priced. Everyone in our party enjoyed their meals. It is a very busy restaurant but the service is very friendly and efficient. Well worth a visit to kick start your day.

Drexels has always had a great reputation so we decided to give it a go. They are very busy so I would recommend making a booking well ahead of time. Staff gave wonderful friendly service and the food was amazing! Good flavour combinations and very large portions too. I ordered 2 pancakes with a side of bacon and I only... More

The birthday boy loves waffles. So I googled and found Drexels. Which even better was located nearby. We all loved our breakfasts.

We tried to get in one day but they were fully booked, and they only had a few spots for next day so book! American style dinner with decent breakfast

Not a bad breakfast but not worth having to ring up and book it was ok but not exceptional. If your in a hurry its a bit of a problem to book

I love this place and can't rate it highly enough. The food is exceptional. There is something for everyone and the portions are huge. I wish they would come to Dunedin. We go whenever we are in Christchurch. I do suggest booking in advance as this place is hugely popular. The service is great
