We stumbled upon this cafe and decided to try it out after seeing the sign that read something along the lines of "Best Eggs Benedict... We are not Egg-xagerating!" Goodness! They weren't lying! Best Eggs Benedict that we ever had! Please do yourself a favour and try it! My husband ordered something else and I remembered it was good too...... More

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 confirmed with stuff... 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
