Tucked in behind the sunny windows on a cold winters morning enjoyed a lovely breakfast. Eggs Benedict Salmon for me and the mushroom stack for my wife. Lovely food and extra friendly staff

Wanting a quick bite we checked out the menu and thought it looked okay. The all day breakfast was a good option so hotcakes with fried banana, bacon and maple syrup was a great tasty choice. The pumpkin and Kumara soup with ciabatta toast was...delicious. As expected a great coffee to wash it down.More

This is a perfectly nice, unremarkable inner city cafe. It's nicely outfitted with comfortable and welcoming seating, including easy chairs and coffee tables. It's on the strret end of the small arcade which leads through to the charming quadrangle in the BNZ Centre. NIce hot...coffee and tea. Cabinet food looked good. Good for a quick meeting place with friends while shopping or in the middle of a working day. Easy, no fuss. Carry on.More

Our large group enjoyed morning tea at this busy cafe in the Mall. It was good to have a separate area and we appreciated their efficient service. The staff strived to please and ensured we had received all our orders. The coffees were good and...I enjoyed the nice chessey scone.More

Ordered bacon, eggs and toast with extra toast and grilled tomato on the side, and coffee. Reasonably priced and arrived in good time. Good value, fast service even though was busy. Been here before, the order is consistent every time.

The cafe is conveniently located across from the botanical gardens and the old Canterbury College. Great sandwiches and salads, coffee and desserts.

Don’t try the coffee cake here. It’s just doughy stodge with a few traces of grated carrot in it - a muffin (in a muffin case) made with prepared mix I suspect.

Really good coffee, full flavour and large cups. Good selection of food, we opted for a cake, nothing better than an afternoon coffee and cake fix
