Love Drexels! Fabulous food and good service. Best scrambled eggs, perfect bacon. Light delicious pancakes. Wonderful home made hash browns. Can't rave enough! One of my favourite places to eat.

The menu has changed since we were last there. We chose it on purpose. I was pleased to see a range of gluten free options. I had the 'Farmers Meal'. It came with tomato, bacon, sausages, eggs, mushrooms served on home made has brown. The coffee was in endless cups. My friends found room for pancakes and maple syrup, had... More

Every time we visit Christchurch we always go to Drexel"s for breakfast. We have tried nearly everything on their extensive menu and we are never disapointed. Great price, great service and amazing food!!! You will never leave hungry. I recommend that if you want to guarantee a table please book as they are always very busy.

This is a mainstay for business breakfasts in Christchurch. Be prepared for large servings. A full serve of waffles, bacon and banana consisted of 5x bacon rashers, four large waffles and a sliced banana. Very tasty, but very filling. The American style bottomless cup filter coffee suits the experience rather than an espresso style, (although they do both), the service... More

A visit with my daughter and her friend for breakfast. It does pay to book if you want to eat earlier. We had a table reserved for 9.30am, and my daughter had only booked that 3/4 hour previously, so not too bad. We had a lovely waitress called Chelsea, very helpful and service with a smile, which is always a... More

It never occurred to me that I'd need to book for breakfast, but luckily the friendly and efficient staff found a seat for me anyway. The food is excellent, and good value. On face value, it looked a little pricey, but the meal was HUGE. If they could just source some free -range eggs, I'd be asking the site admin... More
