Absolutely love this place. Food to die for. Brilliant service. Great ambience. This place has it all. I'm usually a trim latte person but tried the full milk latte as they use organic milk. It was smooth and delicious. I'm converted. I had the seafood chowder. One of the best I have tasted..and I have had a few!!! Definitely worth... More

I had breakfast here with colleagues. Excellent food and a good range of vegetarian and gluten free food. Everyone's breakfast was excellent and the prices are reasonable. Coffee was good but ask for a double shot if you don't like single shot.

Excellent service - cottage decor inside outside tables - gluten free options, the best corn fritters in town - salad dressings are so nice and you can purchase them.

Shared great coffee and food with some family members and a grandchild at this cafe on a visit to Christchurch. The cafe has a great rear outdoor area with tables shaded by large umbrellas. The stoned area is a safe, secure area for young children to roam and play. Visitors are welcome to bring dogs who can happily slurp water... More

I have been following the history of this place for many years. it was one of the first dining establishments in the East side of Christchurch that opened in a private house and then they tried for many years to get a Liqour Licence. They finally got one, and the premises grew from there. I recall they had some wonderful... More

We didn't book (not wise on father's day!) But staff accommodated us. The meals were tasty & very filling . The only niggle was our tea cups were dirty but our server put that right for us when asked. Overall good service and good food

What a lovely restaurant experience. Lovely large patio. Helpful attentive servers. Amazing food and varied menu and decent prices. All the things you don't normally find in one restaurant in Christchurch. Visited with my family today for brunch and we were all blown away by the casual atmosphere, clean presentation, delectable looking cabinet food and scrumptious dishes we ordered from... More
