The food was amazing! GFC Focaccia was so yummy! The coffee and instant service was fantastic and all needs were catered for! Wonderful place to go for an enjoyable Sunday brunch!

The eggs benedict are absolutely beautiful! Staff are friendly, well presented and really helpful. The coffee was served in a cute blue cup and was perfectly hot! Will definitely be back.

We dropped for an excellent lunch. Food was awesome especially the chilli and lime hollandaise sauce on the eggs benedict.

I have eaten here on several occassions and always go back to the pancakes. They have always been cooked to perfection, although over time they have gotten smaller. I have never had a bad coffee and the service is always excellent with smiling and friendly waitresses.

A quick catch up with friends from out of town. As always GFC did not disappoint. Friendly attentive staff meant that food was served quickly and we got our much needed coffee straight away

Popped in for a quick coffee while waiting for an appointment. Resisted the lovely - looking food but enjoyed an excellent flat white and a read of my exciting book in a pleasant and warm environment with the morning sun streaming in.

Decided to give Ground Floor cafe a try not yet knowing Christchurch cafes too well and looking for a good breakfast on a sunny, cool and beautiful Canterbury morning. The decor is a talking point, the owners and staff are friendly and the service efficient. Good breakfast choices and yes yummy. Will revisit when next in Christchurch.

The breakfast are good but a bit spicy for mornings, it seemed like processed foods rather than fresh are being used such as the sauces. Service was good, the staff need to be tidy in there appearance, they all looked liked they had jumped straight out of bed to work. Coffee and tea were nice. Music was too loud, which... More
