I visit the coop whenever I can Don't be put off by the busy bustle. They always find a place and service is friendly, funky and great. They offer everything. Whatever you fancy they have it, and will accommodate changes to your dish. It's called service. Go there and you will not be disappointed

Absolutely loved this cafe, beautiful food and coffee, lovely atmosphere and friendly service. At my last visit I ordered the omelette and a muffin --- both delicious. Would love to return again soon. Cute idea for having flags as tablet numbers.

Good food with quick service. A nice breakfast although I did have mushroom food envy. My French toast was well presented and tasted great.

One of the first up and running post the Christchurch quakes 5yrs back, the ACC is a vibrant stalwart of fine caffeine and good food, a stone's throw from the quiet of the city's anchor, Hagley Park. Run by a collective of millennials it oozes easy charm and design smarts in a laid-back atmosphere conducive to both business and R+R.... More

What a treat our visit was. Had actually planned to do the laundry and discovered the coffee shop attached! Totally forgot about the laundry as we tucked into the delicious breakfast and teas. Atmosphere was great. Music, good food and service was so beyond expectation that we've been back thrice! Go and see for yourself!

This is a wonderful place to meet friends or have lunch or even late breakfast. The atmosphere is fabulous with sort of old school rustic feel to it. The coffee is as good as it gets... the food is excellent and varied. A must stop if you are in the area.

If you are staying in Addington on the outskirts of Christchurch CBD you must go for coffee or breakfast here. There is quite an extensive menu and the free trade coffee is roasted on site. Staff are very friendly and hardworking. It also has a great little book / gift store attached. Well worth checking out if you are in... More

Best breakfast in the City by far. The Big House carnivore option is a huge portion, well cooked (not greasy). Their coffee is also some of the best in the City. Friendly staff and a relaxed atmosphere. The outdoor seating area is a hidden gem.
