Cool spot with friendly staff. The eggs benedict was tasty. I'd recommend booking a table as it can get busy.

Best place to go for brunch in Christchurch, friendly staff and amazing food. DOG FRIENDLY also which is a bonus. Eggs benny is always a winner but hands down the Shakshucka takes the cake. Check it out

Thanks Jonny112345, you have named two of my favorites, and yes we love dogs, in fact we have just added to our pack with an Irish Wolf Hound pup, he can be visited next door, but he will show himself at HS as he grows.

Sitting on the deck in the sun we both chose the beef cheek hash. Baked crisp on the outside and melt in the mouth on the inside, it was an inspired choice. Great cakes and coffee. Suggest sun umbrellas for the outdoor tables.

Hi Aussiepiper, thanks for your review. We would have a bunch of complaints if we ever took the beef cheeks off the menu. We have tried many configurations of umbrellas but the easterly wind turns them into weapons. So vitamin D it is.
