Nice coffee, ambiance and interior. Family friendly place, we ordered big breakfast which was nice on the whole, especially tasty chutney and delicious baked beans but the potato rostie needs a lot of improvement, it was dry slightly burnt and too much pepper. Otherwise a nice experience.

This is a nice hunt in Christchurch for a relaxing cafe. The staffs are so friendly. The music is totally for a perfect afternoon. We were late for breakfast. But the snack is also good. Free wifi of 50m is available on order and the staff beings a access code.

Great food, great coffe, great atmosphere - I'm never disappointed and I took my granddaughter who was fascinated by the old typewriter at this high table and she spent all of our visit trying it out - so it's a great place for kids of all ages

Really cool interior, friendly service and tasty food. The panini's and sandwiches are fresh and the coffee is strong as it should be. Funny detail: when you place an order at the counter you get a small flag pole with a flag from a random country around the world attached to it. Place it on your table and the waitress... More

I will go back, because I am sure they can do better here than we experienced on the day we visited. The food was very nice - good toast and great muesli, although the scrambled eggs were only average. The environment is lovely, a really pleasant place to spend time. The service impressed us less. Our coffees seemed to get... More

We had breakfast here and really enjoyed the atmosphere and the excellent coffee. I had the porridge topped with semi-whipped cream, poached fruit, dark cane sugar and this crumbly gingery topping- it was by far the most delicious and decadent oatmeal I've ever come across and so generous I couldn't finish it. My husband's house breakfast was equally huge. A... More

The thing about the co-op is that it is unique in Christchurch for its vibe, and almost all of that vibe comes from the coffee, the cool building and the brilliant friendly staff which are second to none here in ChCh. The food is about the same as many other well established cafes, nothing to shout about, but pretty consistently... More
