We love brunch!

Had a lovely brunch here, great coffee, perfect poached eggs and a nice hollandaise - what's not to like!

“surprising little restaurant”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 16, 2013

Really lovely little place just off the Priory Church entrance! Looks small from the outside with only a few tables downstairs but more tables upstairs. Staff so helpful and friendly, we had 2 kids with us and I asked if it would be possible to have some bread to keep the little one happy which was brought straight over and they even had a selection of toys to keep them occupied! Food was also very good, I ordered the pan breakfast! Cheese and Alfies Highly Recommend!

“A little gem”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 7, 2013

we ate here after walking around the town a number of times torn between several places including many major chains. We even walked into Soho next door but didn't get "the vibe".
We were greeted by a friendly waitress who ran through the options clearly with us. There are warnings on menus about the potential of a longer than average wait for food as it is prepared fresh. Yes we waited a while but not so long that it was a problem. the food was hot fresh and very tasty. the locally sourced meat ( pork in my case) was cooked to perfection flaking from the cut.

This was a little gem tucked slightly out of the way and its modest frontage probably doesn't prepare you for the delights within quite as it should but then this does add to its charm. Well done all on duty the night of our visit you helped make a very satisfying visit to Christchurch.

5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 21, 2013

We must have walked past this restaurant 100 times without going in despite it always looking busy. Finally went in for dinner and WOW what a surprise. Excellent food great staff and reasonable prices. This will now be a regular for us cannot reccomend it enough.
