We arrived in Christchurch the night before and our family took us out to breakfast here, what a hidden gem! The food arrived in a timely manner, it was cooked well and nothing to complain about there! The coffee was just awesome after 'enjoying' airline and airport coffee! Cannot wait until next years visit!

It had been a few years since we had last been to the cafe but a family event provided the opportunity. The new site in Colombo Street was easy to find and parking on the street ample. The service was average at best, one order variation ignored and when remedied we had to amend the dish, by this time the... More

Half a dozen of the family booked in at the Honey Pot on Colombo Street in Christchurch. The waitress was chatty and smiley and seated us - menus already on the table. Cold water delivered and a few minutes later she returned to take orders for tea or coffee. This was duly delivered and the orders taken for breakfast. I... More

Just don't ask for crispy bacon. I did and it was burnt and inedible. I'm gluten free and also can't tolerate eggs so asked for 1 piece of gf bread toasted (not just shown the toaster if you know what I mean), tomatoes mushrooms and a sausage. I feel like a fussy eater asking but no point getting something you... More

The Honeypot on Lichfield was a great favourite for brunch and we had high hopes that it would be just as good in its new place on Colombo but we have been disappointed both times we have been there. Today we arrived just before 12 looking for brunch only to be told that the brunch menu stopped at 11.30 and... More

Nice breakfast This café has been added to the entertainment book so we read the online menu and as there was black pudding with the cooked breakfast my partner didn’t need asking twice and we were straight down there for breakfast on Saturday morning. On arrival we were greeted by friendly staff, shown to a table and a bottle of... More

After going to Honey Pot Cafe for a takeaway coffee on a weekday and being greeted by friendly staff and quick service, we decided to go back for breakfast on a Sunday. When ordering, we were told our food would be a 30 minute wait on our food as we hadn't made a booking, we said that was ok, despite... More

Average coffee. Great eggs benedict. Only 1 chef to feed full restaurant. 40 min wait but a 20% discount for the wait made up for it a bit. OK
