“Coffee and location”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 29, 2012

The cafe delivers everyday and keeps the Hospital running on coffee. A beautiful place to sit and enjoy the Avon River and the history of the Antigua Boatsheds-history that we are sadly losing in other areas of Christchurch

“Favourite stopping place”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 12, 2012

I love this cafe. I will often stop for coffee or lunch. Recently I had lunch sitting at an outside table soaking up the winter sunshine. The coffee is good and cuisine selection just right. It is set up in the wonderful historic Antigua boat sheds. I have made friends with the two resident cats. It also has good bicycle parking.

“warm spot on a cold afternoon”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 6, 2012

had a late lunch at afternoon tea time...BLT bagel for me & a bacon & egg pie for him. The sauce that came with the pie was red but was it tomato? The salad was a nice touch. The pastry on the pie undercooked & soggy. The bagel was fine. Perhaps the mayo could be optional or a bit less of it? It was a little overpowering. And yes I am fussy. The extra hot water in the teapot was appreciated. Have been here often. Coffee always good. Food good. Setting pleasant.

“Yummy, but more pricey than expected”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 24, 2012 via mobile

This is a quaint little place near the Christchurch Botanical Gardens. The kitchen was closed but the coffee bar had sandwiches, desserts and some light lunch offerings that could be heated. The selection was good, the food was tasty but the prices were really high for a coffee shop/cafe.
