“"Fantastic for breakfast"”
Reviewed January 19, 2014

We sought out this cafe after reading reviews on TA and were glad we did. Our breakfast was fresh, delicious and filling. Owners were friendly and chatted happily to us and to the stream of locals who came in for their take-away coffees. They answered our questions about the history of the building which was really interesting. The freshly baked slices and muffins looked tempting and prices were reasonable. We would definitely return to the "Little Vintage".

“Just What North Canterbury Needed”
Reviewed January 15, 2014

Excellent coffee and selection of fresh food, served by friendly, cheerful staff in clean, basic, 'old' surroundings. Service is prompt and the prices beat anywhere in the vicinity.
Keep up the good work and thanks for settling in Amberley !

“No Lunch”
Reviewed January 13, 2014 via mobile

Came in to try this Cafe out for lunch today due to its good reviews on TripAdvisor. We waited for some time at the counter with no acknowledgement from the staff member, who was making coffee. There was very little in the cabinet (muffins looked like they were seconds from the Artisan bakery of Rangiora). A Cafe has to do better than this. Can't comment on the food except to say there wasn't much on show and we didn't hang round to taste it. One glimmer of hope was their coffee was supplied by Switch.

“You will call again”
Reviewed November 25, 2013

This is a great little Cafe has only been open a short while but loved by locals and visitors alike.
Nothing is too much trouble for these guys. Good coffee, juices and smoothies. Ask for a breakfast in a glass for something different
