Today we went back to my favourite coffee place as the coffee is always a top effort and so reliable. The same applies for the food choices we make - always at the top end of local Choices here in Christchurch. My only area of disappointment is the variable experiences with some wait staff - Some are at the top... More

Went here for breakfast with my wife, while she enjoyed her muffin and coffee , I did not enjoy or finish my eggs! Thought it was overpriced too, but my wife was happy with our meal so I guess its not all bad

We enjoyed a really nice breakfast here on recommendation from where we were staying. The bread is divine.

Way too hipster.. no Diet Coke, only an unfamiliar brand. Eggs with salmon were oke, but the tomatoes & mushrooms with it are a joke, just 2 tiny pieces. I hate sourdough toast, but if you like it, it's okay. ;) Panini chicken was fine. Coffee too bitter.. Little bit overpriced for what you get.. Wouldn't go again..

4 adults & 4 kids dropped in for breakfast, great atmosphere & very quick. Had the eggs florentine, was great, not too much, just enough! Coffee was hot & quick also. Not many options for kids. Maybe should offer a kids pancakes or something!!! Would highly recommend this place if you are in Christchurch!

Dropped in for breakfast with the family at the weekend. Relaxed atmosphere with a great breakfast menu. Standout dish from what we ordered were the pancakes. Wide choice of bakery items available to take away. I'm rating very good but on the staff level the guy with a very particular fashion sense was incredibly grumpy. He's doing the place a... More

Great spot for breakfast/brunch. Coffee was really good and their bread is delicious, so any meal that comes with toast is sure to be great. Grabbed a few muffins on our way out, a banana/mixed berry and a savory, and both were fantastic.

Not a bad spot to pop in for a coffee on the way in or out of the city centre. Nice atmosphere, good coffee, and pretty decent service. Best we've found in Christchurch so far.

Called in for breakfast this morning after seeing it recommended in the Lonely Planet guide. We had two of the big breakfasts. The poached eggs I had were under cooked and the breakfast as a whole was pretty average. It's trying to hard to make a cooked breakfast fancy instead of just keeping it simple and doing it right.

Called in for breakfast but was a little disappointed. The coffee was burnt & tasted bitter & I felt the food was over priced. Basic bacon & eggs $18 and Eggs with salmon $22. Wasn't anything special...
