By far the best cafes in Christchurch. The food is very tasty and the coffe amazing! You should definitely try the iced coffe! The best part about this place is the service. People always with a smile and ready to deliver the best service!

Strong flavours and a bold coffee starts the day well. Well presented and served food with homemade rustic baked beans and perfectly poached eggs. You can't go wrong. My son enjoyed his meal and it was wonderfully priced for him. Set in the Tannery this cafe is a great start and end to being here.

The girl behind the counter didn't look interested in my order. Maybe it wasn't her day. I ordered pasta pesto. Not a difficult dish I think to make but unfortunately the pasta wasn't cooked enough ... no, this wasn't al dente either. It tasted like the pasta had been heated up in the microwave. Some bits were a bit like... More

We've passed Mitchelli's Cafe in the past, but never stopped for a drink. Today we did! Much better selection of cabinet food than the other cafe in the complex, and pretty good coffee into the bargain. Friendly, helpful staff in an atmosphere full of character. They've expanded recently, but kept the industrial ambience that characterises so many of the businesses... More

Not persuaded Christchurch has fully come to terms with the art of making a good coffee but this place has made an excellent start. Looks good for the kids too.

From making the phone booking to leaving this restaurant our family were given friendly efficient service. We needed a baby highchair and our waitress was very obliging and quickly made sure we had a safe highchair for the little one. The menu is varied and a large selection of cabinet food is also available. Our meals were delicious, reasonably priced... More

Another restaurant/cafe that was on the Top Ten list for Christchurch. Had the Home Made Baked Beans for breakfast with a passable coffee. The meal was quite bland and extremely "tomtoey"...thought it could have done with a bit of bacon or chorizo cooked with the beans to make it more tasty. Service was good and the cabinet food did look... More

I booked a table for 4 on Saturday lunchtime. When I turned up with my group (one of whom was elderly) I was initially very disappointed as they could not find where they had placed our reservation (it was very busy and jam packed). They eventually directed us to a table directly in front of the main entrance on a... More
