Excellent coffee here (long black and a flat white) and great views across Christchurch to the Southern Alps. We didn't eat, but the food looked good.

Lunch time, moderately busy. Iced Coffee got a 10/10, Thai beef salad needed a little heating (chilli) up, Salmon and cream cheese Quiche very nice. Portions could be a little larger or put it this way I didn't get the large piece of quiche I had ' hunted' in the cabinet. $19 for the Thai, $14 for the baby Quiche... More

Booked in at 12 to ensure we would not be affected by large booking at 1pm. Greeted pleasantly and seated with access to a nice view. Asked immediately if we wanted a coffee however we have our coffees at the end of the meal. Ordered meals however after 5 minutes were told the Chicken for chicken sandwich was OFF (this... More

Hmmm what can I say. 4 people ordered off lunch menu on one order. 2 got the meal and other 2 had to wait 10mins. Not sure how as it was all cabinet food. The coffee was not to a standard that impressed us at all. The food was mediocre but the view is fantastic.

Amazing view, great wee spot. Breakfast was very average, eggs undercooked. Bacon not crispy. Hollandaise lacked flavour. Coffee was spot on though. Would still recommend

We've wanted to go to this cafe for a long time, the view looks amazing from the window. However, the service was very poor. It was quite busy so we were happy to wait but when the coffee came out it tasted burnt and we also ordered a slice but this didn't come out for at least 20 mins after... More

One of the only cafés in Christchurch with a great view. We were here mid-winter and the snow-covered Southern Alps in the distance just looked great. The food was excellent and the service friendly and efficient. What more can one ask for when out for a quick coffee or lunch? We will most certainly be back.
