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. The food was still fabulous and service friendly. Sometime there is a wait, but it's usually very short; best to call ahead and make a reservation. The servings a quite large and... More

Loved the endless coffee, the omelets, the pancakes, maple syrup and did I mention the coffee? I need to go again soon.

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.

Reviewing restaurants for our impending stay in Christchurch and come across the recent comment by reviewer Fernando012. All kinds of inappropriate, rude and vulgour, tripadvisor please remove. Thank You. Looking forward to trying Drexel's on our stay and certainly will not be phased should I encounter any breastfeeding mothers.

Amazing food!! Never had a bad experience here and have eaten here multiple times. Service is always outstanding and can easily cater to GF which is nice. Highly recommended but remember to book because it's always busy!!

We had breakfast at Drexel's on Saturday. Couldn't fault it! Excellent, perfectly cooked food, friendly service, and even though the restaurant was full the place was kept immaculately clean and seemed totally organised. Great value too!

Went here for lunch, it was a very nice meal with very friendly staff. Along with your cup of tea you get free refills as often as you want. The people we went with dine here often as they enjoy it so much & we would be happy to go back again also.

Went with a fun group of boys before heading to the Hobbit. Some had eyes bigger than their stomachs. Food was good but like most places do not cater for non egg eaters on their menu but were happy to give a substitute
