Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

Gabby & the crew are fantastic. The coffee is always excellent & the friendly service makes the visit worthwhile. Don't just take my word, visit & experience it yourself. Warning, morning tea breaks & lunchtimes are full of those who already appreciate the quality. Thank...you team. GaryMore

Eggs Benedict with salmon - always very good, especially the crunchy sourdough toast & generous portion of salmon & excellent hollandaise, but you continue to overcook the poached eggs - twice now, even though I specifically asked for them to be soft poached this time...... sorry but you need to know how to poach an egg if you have eggs bene on your menu. A simple Google search might help?More

An enjoyable meal in the company of friends. A good range of blackboard items as well as cabinet food meant all our group were happy. Nicely presented, tasty, and friendly service.

It might be in an industrial area but this cafe offers a big space with plenty of light, great coffee and a reasonable selection of cabinet food. Best of all the two ladies on duty when I visited were professional and friendly. Well done!

Visited for brunch with a friend. Ordered the eggs bene with bacon and my friend ordered a burger. We also got two coffees. The coffees were forgotten about and no apology was made when they were delivered to us. The eggs in my meal had...hard yolks and the hollandaise looked as though it had split. My friends burger looked great, although it was hard to eat. The aoili on the side looked like it had split as well. Overall a disappointing experience and will not be visiting againMore

Quite busy on the day I visited but I doubt I will be part of any future crowd. Just average. Over priced for what was provided, with most menu items around $18.50. Coffee was of good taste but not hot enough. I didn't have salad...but a colleague did - the lettuce was brown on cut edge - not a good look. Sorry, but not up to par.More

Sunny aspect to this modern, stark, café. Indoor and covered outdoor dinning, but the man smoking put us off sitting outside. Apparently there is a no smoking rule, he just rudely ignored it. Breakfast menu on the wall and cabinet food, fairly standard. I had...a corn fritter and bacon stack, which unfortunately was very disappointing. One miserly piece of bacon in between 2 very doughy, tepid fritters with little corn. I left most on the plate, explained why to the waitress who said she'd tell the chef, but I received no comment back. Perhaps a free coffee voucher for the next time might have been a nice consideration, at the least an apology for poor quality food.Tea came as requested and coffees were fine, though their standard sized cups were the smallest I've ever seen. I'd rather go to Meshino in Rutland St than this one.More

This review is for the Meshino in the new location in Wigram. Had been to the one in St Albans before and is in a nice colonial building. This one is tucked away in an industrial area so was a bit tricky to find as...the first time I had been there. Went with two adults and two kids in search of a quick lunch so cabinet food was on our agenda. Ordered two iced coffees, a milkshake and a smoothie to start. And then bacon wrapped sausage rolls and stuffed filo. Drinks were ok - milkshake and smoothie looked a better option than the iced coffees. Food was also just ok. Filo was not heated enough so had to go back in for some more and then was overdone. I didn't ask but seemed to be microwave reheated from the cabinet rather than a convection type reheat so was a bit soggy. Staff were friendly. Decor very basic and seems to be the new style for a lot of newer places in Christchurch. Strip mall feel with little in the way of discerning features. Probably wouldn't rush back.More
