Three of us were lucky enough to have a window seat so we could take in the gorgeous view. Waitress immediately came over to ask if we would like to order coffee, which we did. Two of the same coffee (flat white) and one cappuccino....More

The real drawcard for this café is the spectacular view across the city to the west, taking in the Canterbury Plains and culminating with the splendours of the Southern Alps. We just called in for a quick coffee. I had to send mine back -...More

Ordered the bruschetta (tomato, halloumi and basil). Halloumi was missing from my plate, so asked the staff if they could bring some out. Raw cubed halloumi was brought out. Everyone knows halloumi should be cooked! The view is pretty good though!

Came on a cloudy day, so can't say we got a great view, however the food was super tasty. Friendly customer service.
