My local coffee stop, Cafe Sismo never disappoints. Particularly good are the breakfasts - which include all the classics. The staff here are very friendly and the coffee not only tastes great but is served in sweet painted tea cups. A must try!

I was on a course in Christchurch and stayed at the Roma Motel across the road with my colleagues and came across the road to Cafe Sismo every morning for breakfast. Now that in itself should say something about it as if it wasn't a great friendly place with great service, we wouldn't have continued going there every day!

Service was swift and the eggs benedict was superb, made even yummier when topped with the optional salmon or bacon!

The service was swift with everyine there so friendly! Thoroughly recommend this cafe to all!

Had breakfast here and am still thinking about that single, super thick, airy, lightly vanilla flavored, fruit and powdered sugar covered pancake. It was awesome, I wish I would have taken a picture of it. I have yet to meet another pancake like it. This was our first Breakfast in New Zealand so we were beyond happy thinking that this is how Kiwis make their pancakes and looked forward to 8 more days of finding cafe's along our drive where we could enjoy these delectable pancakes but......we were wrong. This is just how SisMo makes their pancake. We searched and searched and no other pancake came close. So enjoy the pancake here and know that you might not find another one like it ;)
The tea was very good as well and the cafe itself was very small and cozy and sweet.
Happy Travels :)

Right across the road from the lovely Lorenzo Motel, great menu with interesting touches (hot chocolate with chilli), coffee served in lovely old fashioned crockery.

The service was fantastic. The food was great. Coffee was good - yay! It was child friendly and no one seemed put out by our two year old daughter being there. We would have gone back if we had time. Definitely worth stopping for a break if you are going past.
