I like everything about this cafe. The staff, food, coffee, atmosphere. Coffee is very consistent and the best scones. Great for lunch with wide variety of either cabinet food or from the menu. Very friendly place to be at any time of the day.

I had my breakfast here. It was very busy. I assume this place is very famous among local people. However, I did not wait long for my order to come. The food I ordered was delicious. I would visit again.

Cafe & restaurant offering fresh local cuisine masterminded by our team choose from the brunch menu served from 7:30am until 11:15am or feast on delectable delights from our lunch menu from 11:30am 'til 2:30pm. Need something on the run? Call ahead to order and grab a bite to eat from our cabinet - EVERY item is packed full of locally sourced goodness, made fresh for you each and every day. Our Hummingbird Coffee blend has quite a backstory: About Re:start: Hummingbird Coffee was invited to join the initial reopening of the Christchurch CBD. They designed and constructed a fully operating café out of three 40 foot extra high shipping containers. Along with this, they designed and developed Re:start the blend; a extremely complex composition of nine different single origins, all roasted by hand separately before blending. It’s this approach of single small ‘batch’ roasting that offers the opportunity to have the same coffee in the blend roasted both medium and a wee bit darker.
