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

Outstanding friendly and patient service. Food is fresh, wholesome and delicous. Coffee is good. We were staying for 3 nights in motels across the road - Ground Floor Cafe was perfectly positioned for our morning coffee fixes, breakfasts and brunches. When I asked for a "tweaking" of the Eggs Benni - no problem at all!

Our first trip to New Zealand - jet-lagged, thirsty, hungry and not used to New Zealand customs, menus and currency. They were very patient and helpful.

All we did was stop for a coffee en route to the airport, I must say it was delicious! Very good coffee. One of the best I've found. If we were in CHCH longer its almost certain I would be a returning customer. Thanks!
