Me and my family have been coming here for years! Food has consistently been amazing and the hashbrowns and pancakes are the best I've ever had! Definitely recommend 👌

Came here for lunch last week, they are happy to take pre-orders so it meant our food would be ready shortly after arriving and we didn’t have to rush to get back to the office. Between us we had chicken enchiladas, a chicken Thai salad and toast with bacon, avo and tomato. My enchiladas were nothing to rave about, quite... More

I have been to Drexels for breakfast several times and the most recent time was very good as usual. They do lovely crispy bacon and I enjoy their hash browns. The waffles are always a favourite as well. Service is friendly and efficient considering they are always busy. You often have to wait for a table even though you've booked,... More

I've been going to Drexels for nearly ten years. I was loyal to the central city location but, after the February 2011 earthquakes, I was grateful they had opened a Riccarton location so Cantabrians could still get our American-style breakfast fix. Excellent quality, generous portions with friendly, attentive service. I've been the Drexels with friends, with family, and with colleagues,... More

Meal was below average, I think I can make those meals at home, and probably better too. This is because my scrambled eggs were a bit dry, they should be runny. The french toasts were a bit too soggy to my liking. The mushroom feels like it has been sitting there for quite some time as they are quite dry.... More

Drexels is in a busy shopping area in Christchurch, next to Riccarton Mall, and at a block where they have restaurants and eating places of all cuisines (practically) packed to the rafters. Plus there are two decent sized eating areas in the mall in two levels. Yet, if you call in cold at Drexels, you may be in luck as... More

I was quite looking forward to trying drexels but I was disappointed. The service was average and the place seemed a bit dirty. My eggs benedict was not pleasant at all, the eggs were over cooked and the hollandaise was split. Nice coffee though and the place was busy so maybe I just came on the wrong day?

I booked us in, knowing how popular the place is. Once again we had a great waitress, fabulous food and a super time. This time I chose the eggs benedict with salmon. It was delicious. I usually choose the all day farmers breakfast, but this was equally as good. I like the coffee top ups. Yes I will be back,... More

I chose to go to Drexels because I no longer live in Christchurch and it was my favourite place to go for breakfast. The selection is still awesome and I went for the usual Big Farmers breakfast, it was yummy except for the corn beef hash which I tasted and didn't revisit. The bottomless coffee was still nice and at... More
