Great coffee and hot chocolate. After Christchurch we called back in for a late lunch and our party of five ordered the Buttermilk pancakes from the all day... More

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

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
