The coffee and food is good, but on the multiple times our family have visited Meshino it is obvious that the staff would rather be any place but working there, very unfriendly.

Made a point of stopping here for a coffee on one of my bike rides since it is on a cycle way. I liked the look of the cabinet items but didn't order anything as there were no prices displayed. WHY do some cafes not...list the price of things?? Do they think no one cares what things cost? Upon ordering my mocha I was charged $5.60 when the board behind the counter listed coffees as being from $4.xx (I forget how much) to $5.50 so then had to dig around in my purse for another 10 cents. I wish now I had said something but the queue behind me was growing. Sat outside to wait for my mocha which turned up 15 minutes later - in a glass and one third foam, both of which I hate. I want to drink my coffee, not eat it, from a proper coffee cup with a handle. To rub even more salt in the wound it was quite sickly sweet as well. Maybe others are impressed with this kind of thing but I was very disappointed in the whole experience and won't be going back.More

Four of us visited and ordered four different meals, this has been the best breakfast I've had in Christchurch. All four meals were outstanding. Staff very friendly. Outstanding, well done!
