A lovely place for lunch for two, or a group of friends. Great food, friendly staff, easy off-street parking, will go again.

Great ambience, staff, food and excellent coffee . We go there regularly for breakfast or lunch or just coffee. In winter we enjoy the warmth of the fire and in summer sit outside in a lovely treed setting with a brook running alongside. Afterwards you can browse some art and craft shops in the historic brick buildings.

We went to Brickmill for a meal for our Wedding Anniversary. Arrived at 3pm and was told that kitchen had closed for the day even though closing time was not for another hour. Was really disappointed, either you are open until closing time or not.

We stopped in here for a brunch on our way to Hanmer and everything was great. The food, coffee, service and car parking was all exactly as it should be. Happy to recommend.

I came here with a couple of friends for lunch,they had thai chicken salads which were good, but i had the best meal it was a steak sandwich which had real onion rings and yummy chips,will definitely come here again and will probably order the same! We also had a cake to share which was very good!!!

If you are heading from Christchurch north on Hwy 1, take the time to stop for breakfast or lunch at the Brick Mill Cafe. We had an excellent breakfast and purchased great pastries and snacks for the drive north. Super service, great coffee and if you happen to be there when the shops around the cafe are open, even better.... More

Stopped here for lunch on a lazy Sunday. There was a deli selection, but ordered my usual bacon & eggs plus a banana smoothie. There was a hot nor'west breeze so I sat outside in the sheltered garden which was very pleasant. The smoothie came in minutes, it was Ok. The meal arrived soon after and I was very happy... More
