Amazing food, great atmosphere

Went to this cafe for breakfast with partner. Was at a very busy time for them. We received excellent service despite the place being full to the brink. Service was a bit slow but thats to be expected at busy time. Coffee and food was delicious. I highly recommend this place to anyone!

The staff are friendly, the food is quality and caters to all different dietary needs. The coffee is of high standard and fair trade. It's always busy here but I always manage to find a seat somewhere :)

Excellent friendly service. The place was full but as soon as a table was free, it was cleared, wiped and water brought straight away.I had the house breakfast. The whole meal was gluten free, even the homemade relish, Everything was cooked perfectly. Superb coffees too.

I love this place! Its so cosy and comfy. Not many cafes in NZ are like that unfortunately, I always felt like sitting in a hospital cafeteria when going into a cafe here but this here is different. the wood inside and all the couches are just inviting to stay here for longer and enjoy the vibrant atmosphere!

This place was amazing! Atmosphere was so vibrant, busy and energetic. The food was so great that we went back for brunch the second day as well. Loved the flags for table identification, something a bit different. The first day we were lucky enough that the weather was beautiful and we could sit in the outdoor area. Over the two... More

I've been down in Christchurch for about a week now. As much as this place have been a little far out from where I'm currently staying, I must say it has quite an ecstatic feel. The moment you walk into this cafe, you feel like time have stopped. It has frozen long enough for you to view the woodern furnitures,... More
