Went here for breakfast after coming across them in the entertainment book app. Good variety on the menu and definitely more than one thing we each wanted to try. I had the vege grill and my husband had the breakfast foccacia. Both excellent and washed down with a very nice hot chocolate. Attentive and friendly staff too.

We recently had brunch here and can recommend it as an excellent cafe. The service was friendly and at no time were we left waiting. The food had attention to detail and was very tasty and the coffee was excellent. We made a few changes to our order and they were accommodating and everything came out perfectly. Nice decor with...

My OH and I had brunch here yesterday, following reviews on TA. We were not disappointed. Both had eggs benedict, mine with the chilli lime mayo. Absolutely delicious. Service was excellent.

There are too many cafés in Christchurch that are let down by their lousy service, but this isn't one of them. As each of our friends arrived, we were greeted by staff and asked if we would like to order a drink. They remained attentive throughout our lunch. The vege stack with a small side salad from the cabinet was... More

I go to this café every morning and its amazing. The staff see me park my car outside some days and have my regular order in process or even ready. Adam is a fantastic café manager. He has charisma and is chatty and professional

This popular cafe in Riccarton has a dedicated following amongst office workers as well as "ladies who lunch". Consequently it is very busy at lunchtimes and service can be a little slow to start with. However once I caught the eye of the waitress our meals were delivered quickly and were beautifully presented. At lunchtime you can choose from the... More

Had family staying from overseas for a week so decided to take them to GFC for breakfast. Hadn't been for at least 3 years and had heard ownership had changed so was a bit wary. No need to be - if anything was even better than our last visit. Will definitely not be waiting another 3 years to go back.... More

There nothing better than an awesome brunch on a cold winters morning in Christchurch. Ground Floor Cafe does amazing brunch, the best we have had in years. The focaccia stack with chutney bacon has brown and poached egg topped with a perfectly made hollandaise. The coffee is well know as being excellent too.
