“I just love breakfast here”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 25, 2012

Came here recently after hearing that it had reopened since the earthquake. Brought my 3 sons out for breakfast- we sat outside in the courtyard. The wait staff were extremely friendly and attentive. Order taken - smoothies, cooked breakfasts coffees etc. so many yummy items on the menu.
Not a thing left on anyone's plates and smiles all round.
The cabinet food looks fabulous too!
I have always loved this place and I'm sure it's got even better since the earthquake.
My husband felt left out when I told him I had taken the children out for breakfast/ brunch - we will be back for sure!

“And great for a business meeting too!!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 12, 2012

Crossed town to meet with a business group - 9 of us around the board table. Great service fine coffee, the atmosphere may have helped us cut that elusive rebuilding deal!!

Recommended meeting place for this side of ChCh.

“Best breakfast I have ever had!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 9, 2012

Under The Red Veranda is amazing. The breakfast is delicious and my husband and I visited more than once.

We enjoyed the big breakfast and Eggs Benedict particularly but all the cakes in the cabinet looks spectacular.

The staff are very friendly and very attentive.

Ten out of ten.

“Getting above it's station”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed July 6, 2012 via mobile

About 5 years ago this place was typically kiwi . Great food, ok value , wonderful atmosphere dnd just s bit quirky . Sorry but now it's lost something . The rebuild is fine but it's way overpriced $13.00 for a bowl of soup !!!!! Slightly pompous in atmosphere . It just doesn't feel like the little special oasis it was .
