This is a wee gem of a cafe/restaurant. Our party of 6 enjoyed a quality lunch and excellent service on a busy day when the cafe was full and the queue almost out the door. Everyone enjoyed their meals ordered off the menu, food was well presented, beautifully cooked and there was plenty of it. Staff were friendly and seemingly unflappable. Was a special family occasion topped off with a great lunch.

Superb coffee. Head and shoulder above any cafés around town. Food is also good but the cabinet food price is a bit over priced. Menu food is fair priced and good value. We were a bit surprised that we were not allowed to order breakfast at 11:40am.

Coffee is so good That's how I will remember the place

One of the best, if not the best, coffee in Christchurch. Aromatic and tasty coffee. Complimented with different coffee arts for different coffee (can't stand mass production style - same art for all coffee )

Lunch - salmon, served with gourmet mashed potato, was good portion and fine taste. Corn puff with salad was well balanced favour.

Indoor outdoor atmosphere was inviting. Little oasis in a boring commercial and industrial area

This could well become our regular place

Fabulous cafe in the heart of a commercial area. On a dark morning this cafe is like a lighthouse in the outer Addington area. Delicious range of counter food and breakfasts. Cheerful and welcoming staff. But best of all, fantastic coffee. Milieu has a very comfortable and quiet environment, even when catering for a busy breakfast crowd.

Our Lions Club decided to have our Change of Officer Evening at Milieu on 15th June. There were 28 in the group. During the contact with the Manager prior to this evening we found her to be very accommodating to our requests. The weather was terrible on the night, but our evening was top. The main was absolutely beautiful as was the dessert..yummy. The service was very good. Tables set out well. All in all we could not fault the evening. To Sarah a big thankyou from us.
As a result of this evening, we are having a business mid-winter function there also on 29th June.
Well done Sarah and your staff.
