Had a superb brunch here on Thursday I had the French toast and my friend had the focaccia. We were both very happy with our meals and the service was great

We visited this cafe for a family Saturday brunch. We found the staff friendly and very helpful. The service was good and efficient and we really enjoyed their Supreme coffee. The breakfast/lunch menu was fairly standard with a good range of meals. We were generally happy with our meals except for the liver and bacon which was served on focaccia... More

Having previously visit this café and written a scathing review especially on the service you will not be surprised that I went back. However they were close to where I was staying so I took the gamble. What a transformation. The service was amazing, the coffee was made to my exact request and the food was fantastic.

Used to be a very busy place for lunch during the week, could never get a seat without booking. I booked a couple of days ago, but walked in today to an almost empty café. We ordered 2 salads. Which took about 15 mins to come. I had the Thai Beef salad, the salad was very basic (like it came... More

Used to love this place however visited recently and seems to have gone down hill. Very expensive for a lunchtime meal. The Steak sandwich was $24 and they charged for being gluten free. This plus a drink was $32+. No real complaints about the meal. Was fine and enjoyed it but would say previous experiences have been better!

Best breakie and lunch cafe in Christchurch. Why, the atmosphere , wait staff. And flavor. This was my weekly ritual on Sat or Sun morning. The chili lime eggs Bennie are to die for. For lunch, the steak sandwich can't be beat. I spent just short of two yrs there and never tired of this weekend haunt.
