“Great food and atmosphere!”
Reviewed May 22, 2013

Superb coffee (Urban Grind of Christchurch), hot chocolate which came with a huge bar of dark chocolate and a really amazing slice of baked cheesecake. The whole cafe is very open, airy, and well-designed. An great place to spend a relaxing afternoon.

“Not just a coffee bar”
Reviewed May 11, 2013

Nice atmosphere and great staff. Anything from breakfast and great coffee to great rissotto, gnocci and good wine. There is a sunny little spot out the back and a cool little bar on a mezzanine upstairs.

“Went for breakfast, came back for dinner !”
Reviewed May 2, 2013

Wow - The muesli for breakfast was just fantastic. My wife had the Spanish omelette which she loved too.

On laying, we overheard someone mention the 2 for 1 pizza deal, so we came back with the kids for dinner. Absolute winner for all of us. The gourmet pizzas were cooked just right and the flavors were beautifully combined, as we ordered 1 each of all the gourmet selections.

Well done - a great place with a great ambience.
