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.

What a great place for food. The selection was bigger than one would expect for such a small place. In saying that there was plenty of room and the place was warm.

The food here is really good, the staff are friendly. My complaint is that the staff walked past so many tables with used dishes etc on them. They were not busy, they stood behind the counter chatting to each other. When finally they cleared one...of many uncleared tables, they didn’t come back to wipe them clean. It was hard to find a table without dishes or crumbs and spilled drinks on them. There were at least 4 tables like this, staff just walking past them, seeing them and turning away, waiting no doubt for one of the others to do it. Not a good look or experience. On the way out I told one of the girls “those tables need clearing so that people can sit down.” She grinned at me and said “yes” and carried on chatting to her offsider. Not good enough.More

Great poached eggs for breakfast and the greatest coffee I have had in a long time. Very clean and spacious with an excellent range of food choices. Free parking making this easily accessible.

When a café can cope with an influx of nearly thirty thirsty walkers, they'll always get the thumbs up from me! Kidd's Cakes and Bakery were totally unfazed by our noisy seniors group and quickly attended to our various needs. Great food, good coffee and...spotlessly clean surroundings all added up to a first-class experience for us all. Well done, Kidd's!More

My wife and I ordered two "famous pies", a portion of chips and a coffee. I had a steak and cheese pie which was adequate but I found it rather salty. My wife ordered a chicken brie and cranberry pie - she was very disappointed....Most of the filling was made up of peas and corn, with only two pieces of chicken and three red dots which might have originated from cranberries. My wife does not like either peas or corn!! Surely the name of the pie should indicate the major ingredients. The chips were barely cooked and were merely tepid when served to us. No tomato sauce was present in the restaurant and the waitress had to run off and fill a container in the kitchen. THE COFFEE WAS EXCELLENT! There are excellent cheap fooderies in this area GIVE THIS ONE A MISS!More

I have scored Kidds so high due to the amazing amount of options that they have. They have from your simple pies and rolls to sit down with cabnet food and menu board. Food is pretty good not fantastic and prices are good as well....There is something for every taste here.More

Absolutely one of the best large scale bakeries in Christchurch. Lamb & Mint is my favourite but they usually have 8-10 different combinations. All the usual favourites are in the cake section but I try hard to resist.

initial order of an english breakfast tea we couldn’t t have as they d run out of teabags! Tables dirty & full of empty plates. People around us sending food back as it was cold, my mother’s cappuccino cold, when our order finally arrived the...potato top savory was Luke warm. The waitress bought 1/2 our order, then walked off for her break where upon I challenged her when the rest of the order was to arrive & she said someone else will sort that out. I spoke with Krystal - the manager, who appeared unable to sort anything out. Food mostly nice but need to up your game for service.More

Me and a friend decided to go to kidds bakery for lunch. We ordered at the till while my friend grab a table. We had to push the dirty plate aside. We thought that the waiter will clear the table and wipe before serving us....But no....he just bought our lunch in middle of the dirty plates and left. Who do that? I had to back to the till and asked him if he can clear the table. To make thing worst another waiter came with our coffees who was as rude. Was very disappointed!More
