I have been here a number of times and always found great food with plenty of choice. Some delicious savoury gluten free options that are different from the usual. The sweet slices are huge, and I wondered if they were half the size with lower price if that would be a better option. Nice range of seating options, both indoor... More

I met up with a friend last weekend, at the Beach Cafe in Brighton, a seaside suburb in eastern Christchurch. It's a lovely venue, where we've both been before, and where we're happy to return frequently. The service is always reliable, friendly but professional, the coffee is wonderful and the food great. Afterwards we went down to the beach with... More

We visited this cafe with our friends who live locally. The food is really lovely, a great variety of standard dishes and also some novelty choices. We are meat eaters and really enjoyed the Grill and the Burger, both big and tasty. We will be back.

Not often you get to stroll into a cafe straight from the beach with dog lead in hand. This place is a stones throw frrom the beach. Its a nice addition to the day. Super dog friendly. Fantastic indoor and outdoor seating. Child friendly and lots to keep my eyes active (haha). Fabulous food, tasty sugar naughty treats, nice coffee... More

My wife and I are almost regulars here. Friendly service and generous portions of tasty food are some of the reasons we keep coming back. A baby and dog friendly cafe are rare but Beach cater for all. They also have a special menu for dogs!

We have visited this place twice now and enjoyed it both times. Food is absolutely fabulous and service friendly and efficient. Amazing outdoor seating by the sea and great for kids and dog lovers.

My husband and I frequent this cafe for breakfast/brunch. The eggs bene is delicious. Great hollandaise and the "hash browns" are sooooo yummy. The staff are great and even though we don't have kids it's great to see a place cater to families and well behaved dogs. Definately recommended but if you don't really like places with lots of kids... More

We had brunch here with overseas guests on a weekend morning. It is was delicious. The full breakfasts were enormous and the kids cooked breakfasts were just what my two boys (4 and 8) love - an adult meal in kids portions! I had the banana toast with maple butter and whilst ok - the maple butter could do with... More
