“Fresh & Original”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 7, 2013

One of the things I like most about NZ food is cafe food with originality. Metro is one of many "pop-up" businesses in post-earthquake Christchurch to have relocated from the city centre. The food has great eye-appeal & is really tasty. My Greek Salad was quite original, with lots of sundried tomatoes as well as the usual olives & feta etc. Very busy cafe, extremely popular with locals. Excellent coffee too.
