Great staff, friendly, helpful. Beautiful food, well prepared and served. Pleasant surroundings although tends to 'echo' a little. Good situation, easily accessed, parking convenient.

“Wonderful atmosphere”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 14, 2014 via mobile

My wife and I come to New Zealand often for business and we come here as often as we can. The atmosphere is very friendly. They have excellent service and great food too! We love their breakfast menu, especially the pancakes and omelets.

“Coffee and food to die for!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 4, 2013

I've heard great things about Churchill's - especially about their coffee - so decided to take my parents for lunch. The ambience was lovely, and the expected road noise from SH3 outside was unnoticeable - a welcome surprise. Everywhere was clean and tidy, toilet included. The counter staff were excellent - careful and friendly, with natural smiles.

Once seated we found that Churchill's reputation for great coffee is true, it was absolutely delicious! The food was similarly excellent - we all had toasties, and my mushroom and Camembert was the best toastie I've ever had - finely balanced and flavoursome. Lunch was topped off with a delicious caramel slice.

The only watch-out is it took over 35 minutes for our three toasties to come out, during which time the pot of tea had gone cold. They were busy, but not packed, so this delay was unexpected, and one I see has been mentioned by others. I hope the owners take note of this, as it's the sole aspect that distracts from an otherwise excellent experience.

In summary, for anyone not in a rush and wanting a lazy lunch with time to chat and enjoy the great coffee and delicious food, Churchill's is absolutely perfect.
