Water Drop cafe is located on the ground floor of the Fo Guang Shan Buddhist Temple on Riccarton Road. The irony is that, while the building itself (a rather monolithic structure compared to its surrounds) is almost impossible to miss, I'd guess many people don't actually notice the cafe.
Since our first visit in late 2016, we've returned on two other occasions during weekends. Parking is plentiful and the atmosphere once inside is pleasant. Vegans will feel especially welcome with the wide range of plant-based dishes on offer.
The food is 'clean', fresh and flavoursome. There's an excellent selection of small savoury items (we personally like the dumplings and the bao), but it's also possible to have a full meal. We've also enjoyed some of the cakes/slices, though the coffee is only adequate.
Overall, a great place for warm, comforting, food that makes you feel good.
