Came here looking for a good coffee before a big drive. Had to wait 10 minutes in the empty coffee shop to receive our coffees- I had an almond milk latte which was burnt and undrinkable. My partner had a small flat white which he just managed to swallow down.
Would not recommend.

Had lunch here recently for the first time in a few years. This cafe/restaurant has been consistently good for 10+ years (maybe closer to 20!). Nice food, good service, great outdoor seating area for sunny days. Definitely recommend.

Thoroughly enjoyed the French toast, bacon, strawberries and cream choice for brunch today and my husband enjoyed the burger. Both meals were nicely presented. Service wasn't speedy but all in all a good experience in a very popular cafe.

Holy crap that thing was so good. I totally want to go back for dinner to have it again, but it's closed! :(

When we were away for some time we profoundly missed this superb coffee house. Over the years, it became our yardstick and thus far we've failed to find an equivalent to match the roast, the finish, the consistent quality produced by this almost heritage cafe. The ambience, the service, the food and beverage, the superlative staff - our favourite for decades. Used to do fantastic evening meals but patronage fell away. Still the same capable staff, so if you ask nicely, they'll be able to rustle up anything to your taste. Christchurch, enjoy! Ozone Rocks!
