Came here with a few friends and kids. Was quite crowded but managed to secure a pair of couches. Coffees/smoothies ordered. Coffee is ok, smoothies really really good. Also ordered breakfast which came out incredibly fast, I'm talking within a couple of minutes. Perhaps most of the rest of the patrons were eating cabinet food or slices, but nonetheless, super...

This place has a great atmosphere and it was packed full when we dropped in for lunch. I must have looked quite lost looking for a spot to sit when one of the staff members spotted and then directed me to an available table. I was quite appreciative when he even got 2 glasses and a jug of water for... More

Good breakfast and excellent coffee (so much so we bought a bag to take with us - they grind their own roasted beans to order).

Casual, relaxed and unpretentious - this great little find provides the absolute best coffee available on New Zealand's South Island. Everything tastes like it should- I recommend the cream cheese bagel with tomato. The coffee was so good I got one to take away too!

Love the vibe of this place, very Wellington hipster. Coffee was great and the food was amazing. The flags as table numbers is a cool touch, great way to learn some geography!!! Very busy

It's all about fair trade, sustainably made food and produce, helping out others and leaving the world a better place than how we found it. They have a fair... More

Laid back, comfortable feeling, large cafe with excellent food and a good breakfast/brunch/lunch menu. Large venue with plenty of seating. Great place for a casual catch up with friends.

Probably one of the best places in Christchurch to go for breakfast. The Rustic athmosphere and community spirit in this gem of Christchurch is amazing. The Coffee Co-Op have their own farm and everything you eat is organic and fair trade. You certainly can taste the difference! The Vegetarian Big Breakfast is a must have (I am a meat lover... More
