I go there for coffee in the mornings before work. The mochas are awesome. I do always look at their food as it looks pretty yummy but I've never actually bought any of it. But it defiantly looks good

I usually stay at a motel across the road when I’m in Christchurch and have my breakfast at Sismo but when I went over there this morning, they were still closed from the Christmas/New Year holidays and don't re-open until next week so looked for another place. The Ground Floor Café is very well hidden behind a fence but the... More

After reading the reviews on TA we stopped in and were greeted promptly. Our orders were taken quickly and the food arrived in no time. The menu options were interesting with salmon/pesto salad and the lamb/mint burger our choices. The food was piping hot, freshly cooked and tasted yummy. We were so pleased we stopped by. The only thing was... More

Great wee hideaway on Riccarton Road. The meals are a good size and decent price, and I always go for their plum smoothies - even better than the classic berry ones! I've had their Turkish tomatoes, corn fritters, big breakfast and cherry and marscapone pancakes... Would get them all again! The only hesitation is because it's a small place, you're... More

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
