This is a small but amazingly good place for breakfast or an afternoon snack. We were staying at the Terra Vive apartments just around the corner and stumbled upon it by chance. The owner was very friendly and smiley, even though our first visit was just 10 mins before he was due to close! He made us feel very welcome. He apologised for his small menu but there was no need for apologies - there was more than enough to choose from! We were so impressed with his customer service (and the quality of his food and coffee) that we made a concerted effort to re-visit his cafe on our return to Christchurch at the end of our holiday. We were not disappointed. This cafe is a prime example of a local independent cafe doing everything right, and thoroughly deserving the reward of regular custom. If he opened a place the UK and offered this kind of service, I’d be there every day!
