Loved the sweet pancakes

The sweet pancakes come with a caramelized banana on top and even taste like they have banana inside of them. I'm a big pancake fan and these did not disappoint! The French toast was also very good. Great breakfast place overall!

I had muesli and fruit which was excellent along with good coffee. The bread looked tempting. The casual seating was inviting and comfortable. Many of the other diners looked like they were regulars.

Big breakfast was OK - had much better for half the price at $22. Pumpkin feta spinach (and something else) filo was dry with ingredients mashed unrecognisably together - odd taste. Coffee was nice, parking difficult. Nothing spectacular overall. Kids at other table looked like they were loving the pancakes though.

Yummy breakfast,very busy place which is always a good sign. Real quick service. Eggs florentine tasty. our son loves French toast,and rated this 8/10..the bakery has the best ciabatta to buy as well. They only make the scones during the week,none in the weekends which was disappointing ...

Vic's has freshly baked breads and pastries. It's a popular eatery for brekky (breakfast) and lunch. The caffeinated beverages are well crafted. When we came, the place was packed with kiwis. We had the chicken panini ($12 NZD), lamb burger ($15 NZD), bacon muffin (a strange food), afghan cookie (crumbly), and coffee ($4.50 NZD). Food was fresh and delicious. A... More

Our first morning in Christchurch, we gave this place a try, as it was just around the corner from our hotel. Coffee was good and food was alright.
