We decided to try The Cup for a Saturday evening meal having been there previously for coffees and breakfast. Very pleasantly surprised. The location is stunning with superb views. Downside is its suburban location but after all this is Christchurch 2014, most cafés are in the suburbs. Food was excellent and our waitress bubbly and cheerful. Overall we had an... More

My brother and I dined here recently for breakfast. We both got the big breakfasts, however we noted that a few tables who arrived after us received their cooked meals before us. Aside from the long wait, the food was very enjoyable. Our waitress was one of the best I have ever had. She was super friendly, and enthusiastic, and... More

The food was great, the staff were pleasant and friendly, the view fantastic - but ... a 40 minute wait to have cabinet food delivered to our table!?? Sorry that is just too slow.

Used to be our local cafe so went for weekend breakfast. Pancakes were awful. Tasted odd and left horrible aftertaste. Looked like they'd been cooked on a dirty hotplate. Complained to waitress who didn't seem interested and just repeated what I'd said. Not offered refund or replacement. Hubby had overlooked kidneys with small half of a ciabatta bun to accompany...

Went here for my Birthday and although my wife who made the booking was a little disappointed with the menu on offer and also the dining room we were both happy when we left. The service was efficient and although the menu was rather limited our main meals were well priced and where tasty. Very good value and good portion... More

The Cup is a great location for a casual tea or coffee. The view over the city is very good although parking is a little difficult. The service was very good for a large group and plenty of choice of window food.

We had been previously before just for a coffee, so thought we would head there again, the staff are friendly and service was reasonably quick. Has a great view. My husband's coffee and soup he thought were ok, I had a chai latte which was rather bland compared to other places I have tried and I had the savoury loaf... More
