In an unassuming building in an industrial area of Christchurch, lies this cafe which uses local produce in all of its recipes. There's no set menu - you just take your pick of cabinet food available for the day. Local artists are in residence, too,...More

XCHC Cafe is a mixed-use cafe and events space for people to connect and be creative. There's a makerspace on-site where artists and creatives work, and the seating for the cafe is in a showcase venue with rotating exhibitions, so you can always expect a different show/art on the walls when you come in. Because we have accommodation above the cafe, we get to host international artists and chefs who bring their creativity to our venue as-well. The cafe serves a few social purposes: 1. Connect the public with the developing creative practices and events that so that we build an exciting, supported arts/creative community 2. Be a platform for our chefs to explore their culinary creativity while supporting local suppliers and producing healthy, real food. 3. We believe strongly in building an inclusive community, so we offer work experience to people who may not normally be given such opportunities. 4. All revenue goes directly to purpose, not shareholders (i.e Social Enterprise)
