Under the Red Verandah has been a Christchurch institution for a very long time and it's always been consistently good. Very busy at the weekends, pays to book. Brunch/lunch dish on Saturdays, wine too. Good coffee.

Their oatie pancakes are simply the best ever and come with bananas, maple syrup, bacon in a friendly, neighbourhood cafe setting with indoors and outdoors seating plus friendly service that makes you feel welcome and special. Even the kitchen staff appear to be happy.

A very rustic wee restaurant. Great service and food. The coffee is to die for. My only complaint would be the worn scratched glasses that were supplied with the water.

This cafe has a lovely ambiance where you can sit in the courtyard under the trees and umbrellas and just chill out. The coffee was good as was the ginormous cheese scone. Recommend.
