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

Great service for breakfast - very helpful and patient. Amazing french toast! Good cup of coffee and good location in relation to our hotel.

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.

Met up with our daughter for coffee. I restrict myself to one coffee a day and I do enjoy good coffee so I was delighted to visit Ground Floor Cafe. We also had our dog with us and were allowed to sit her in the corner of the outside seating. They even bought her a bowl of water. My daughter... More

First time visit here this Sunday for breakfast. I booked a table earlier that morning and I`m so glad I did because when we arrived the place was heaving. We were welcomed and shown straight to our table. GFC is a small cafe with very quirky decor and a small outdoor seating area. I should imagine it would be lovely... More

Loved the decor. The staff were very attentive without being overwelming. We both had a berry smoothy and BLAT - bacon, lettuce, avocado and tomato on toasted ciabata bread served with fries. For lunch the meal was huge and we could not finish it. Loved the atmosphere - so relaxed. Lots of corporate people dining. Will go back again possibly... More

When I entered the Ground Floor Café and saw it was so busy my first thought was to try to find somewhere else to have breakfast. I am glad I didn't. They did have a large group to attend too but despite this the wait wasn't too long. And the waitress had explained right from the outset that my coffee... More

We had breakfast here a few weeks ago. It was really good and sustained us for the whole day. The tea and coffee were excellent and we had the best pancakes of the holiday. My friend said her porridge was really good too but huge! Thoroughly recommend it.
