A cafe in the ReStart Mall where all the businesses are housed in shipping containers after the earthquakes destroyed many of the local shops and offices. The cafe has a great range of snacks, hot and cold food and drinks. Friendly, efficient staff keep up the pace in this busy and popular cafe. A lovely place to enjoy delicious food.

Great and friendly staff, excellent food, terrific location. Our hotel was nearby and once we'd eaten here, my husband wanted to have b'fast at the H'bird Cafe very day. He likes his coffee and theirs was superb.

We went there for breakfast. The date scone was quite delicious, the hot bagel a bit less (with just sufficient - not very generous - amount of jam and cheese).

Good strong coffee on a brisk Chch day. Always a good coffee can be found here. Perfectly fine to grab a takeaway and keep on looking around the mall.

Stopped in here twice for breakfast while we were in Christchurch for the weekend. We had the savoury scone each time which were delicious. The coffee was also great. Plenty of room to sit outside and relax and read the paper. We visited on a Saturday and Sunday morning and never had a problem getting a table. Staff were lovely.... More
