“Great coffee, cute cups.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 23, 2013

A small cafe with great-tasting coffee served in antique teacups and saucers. A quaint touch. Friendly service, too.

Standard cafe, average in a good way. Very warm environment, smaller space. Future suggestions: child high chair

“Nice cafe!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 16, 2013

We had lunch here based on tripadvisor's ranking and also near our holiday house in Christchurch. It's a very nice cafe with outdoor seatings and I observed many people drop by for coffee to-go. We each had a dish, and Egg's Benedict is our verdict as the best dish. Nice coffee too. Overall, nice place to hang out even if not for lunch.

“typical cafe”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed May 14, 2013

don't understand what all the hype is about, they serve the same food as any other cafe the service was nothing out of the ordinary, my sausages were slighty undercooked and it's tiny in there, 2/10 from me

“Most scrumptious breakfasts”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 9, 2013

We were travelling as a large family group (4 adults and 2 kids) and started our morning here for breakfast, wow!!!! the food was amazing and the berry smoothie was devine, there was lots of delicious food on offer for breakfast from fresh hot crossiants with jam to the big breakfast with lots of bacon, eggs and other yummy treats. My eldest son (10yrs) really enjoyed his huge plate of pancakes, bacon and maple syrup, there was enough to feed both him and I. I absolutely loved it, the staff were friendly and the atmosphere was vibrant. would definitely recommend this café to anyone wanting a fabulous breakfast.
