Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

Open, spacious warm modern cafe with great coffee and food. Terrific cheese scones. Close to the central city action. Popular with the journos from the Press.

I'd travel to Christchurch just for the kimchi omelette. So good and such a great combo of flavours and textures. Yumm. And it's the one dish hubbie knows he would get stabbed with a fork if he tried to get a bite. It's seriously yummy. Child Sister is a pretty popular cafe in the Christchurch CBD and their mix of both korean and European dishes is great. Hubby loves his French toast and our friend was pretty happy with the salmon Benedict too. Add to this pretty good coffees and fast service and you can see why this Is a winner. Always busy, always good.

Nice busy cafe vibe but wait staff working hard to manage the volume and slow on water and utensils. Cashier staff very friendly and efficient. Family of 6. Meals generally ok, and arrived all together. The Quesadilla and Mushrooms were excellent but specific feedback on the poached eggs and the corn fritters. The eggs were overdone - poached eggs should be on the runny side of soft. Can’t tell whether this was time or technique. The Corn Fritters were peculiar. The Child Sister recipe has polenta (or something like it) which makes for a dry crumbly and unpleasant presentation. I’ve had a few corn fritters in my time and never encountered anything like these. I would commend Child Sister to try a more conventional Corn fritter recipe. The bacon accompaniment and the beetroot chutney were very good but the Fritters were disappointing. Would visit again

Child Sister has some good brunch, hot drink and dessert items. We enjoyed the kimchi omelette and french toast. The place is very busy but we had no issues getting a table. The restaurant is near the Margaret Mahy Family Playground, New Regent Street and many other sights in Christchurch. We planned a midday stop as we explored the city.

Great atmosphere, friendly staff, nice food. Visited with friends and we had a great experience. Recommend the quesadilla or any of the cabinet food!

How this place only has 4.0 out of 5 I will never know. It should be 10 out of 5! Late one morning I was looking for a bite to eat and waking by I could see how busy it was. After ordering my food and coffee I could see why! This place has hands down the best tasting food I've had in New Zealand so far and the coffee was delicious too! I wish I could bring the chef home with me!

Lovely breakfast and coffee. A good sized eggs benedict for the price! Funky atmosphere and a busy cafe for good reason!

Popped in this morning after reading the reviews, only stopped for a coffee and scone. The place is as described, light and minimalist on the walls, added to a vibing environment. There were plenty of diners inside, from the looks all enjoying their plated meals. I ordered a long black and a cheese scone, I would have been happy to sit outside but the sun was beating down and there wasn’t much cover. I walked on a bit and sat under a tree by the river. Coffee was nice, scone had flavour on the outside, but once you got into the centre it lacked flavour, so fed it to the seagulls.

Met a co worker here for breakfast while on a business trip to Christchurch. Really like the ambiance - airy, minimalist, warm and welcoming. Ordered the breakfast sandio which was fantastic with a hot chocolate to go with it. Moderately crowded even though it was rainy and cold outside - must be real popular with locals. Will definitely return when in town.

We went every day while we were in Christchurch for a conference it was so good we just kept going back. Loved their corn fritters best I have ever had. Coffee was great. If you are staying in cbd go there and nowhere else

What an awesome cafe with such spice mix of Korean and European food! So glad that our friend recommended this to us. It's pretty popular and tables can be tricky to get, but you can book ahead. And it's pretty popular for a reason. The kimchi omelette with friend was amazing and I'd happily eat that each day so delicious! Hubby was pretty happy with his shakshuka too and our friend loved the eggs Benedict with salmon. Yes maybe it not the cheapest brunch in town but it is certainly yummy. We will be back.

Met a friend for brunch on a Saturday morning. Very little customer service and average eggs benedict. It was the most bland eggs benedict I've had in my life even with adding salt and pepper. Hollandaise was sparse and pretty sure straight out of a supermarket bottle (served cold). Won't be back.
