The worst service I got in New Zealand

Order Cofee, banana shake and a bagel with cream cheese take away as we didn't have much time. While waiting more then 15 minutes for my bagel I realise I've been charged $14 for a bagel with cream cheese. Not sure how can anyone charge that much money for a piece of bagel with cheese. Once I've... read more

We wanted to have breakfast at a café close to our motel on Riccarton Road and Ground Floor Café delivered for us. We only new about the existence of the café as a result of looking on Tripadvisor and the previous reviews have it right - it is a good place for breakfast or brunch. Ticks all the boxes -... More

I regularly call in at the GFC for an espresso coffee, as have found it consistently excellent to very good. I have my own coffee machine, and am fussy!

Just happened to be staying at a motel across the road so popped in for breakfast. I had the Bircher Muesli which was really nice. The place was fairly quiet on a Monday morning around 09:30 and we were served very efficiently. I would certainly be going in again but I've only got one more morning and have to try... More

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
