Review of six ounces

six ounces
Ranked #3 of 26 Bars & Pubs in Christchurch
Description: six ounces is the realisation of a dream we have had for years. We wanted to establish a neighbourhood cafe and bar that puts everyone who comes through its door completely at ease. We love providing our locals with a place to pause their busy lives and grab a great coffee, a well-earned glass of wine and a fresh bite to eat. We have created a cosy, relaxed space where, during the day, you can enjoy a working lunch or hole up with your laptop, and where, by night, we encourage you to graze on our selection of meats and cheeses and have a lengthy catch up with your mates over a beer or a wine. As if all that wasn’t enough, we are also dog-friendly so please bring your pooch by to meet us, and take advantage of the doggy water station and fully-stocked jar of treats!

When I tell you this place is amazing, I mean it!!! I am vegan and often on the look out for new places to eat. I went into six ounces today and was surprised that the fridge next to the counter is all vegan food!! Such a pleasant surprise to my day! I got the filo and it was amazing!!!! I also got a tulip oat flatty and it was so delicious. To anyone looking for a cozy local cafe this is the place! Very lovely staff as well I must say. Will definitely be back as soon as I can!

This place has no menu for during the day to order food and they had only 2 slices and 2 savoury options to eat! And nothing suitable for specific dietary needs either (eg gluten free) - they are really only good for coffee/drinks during the day. You also cant book a table during the day so is not good if want to meet some friends/business associates and get there and they are full. On the plus side the decor is very pleasant and they allow dogs. Sadly...Definitely the most generally unaccommodating coffee place I have ever been to and I wont be back!

Hi Scott, we are very sorry you did not have a good experience with us.

I am assuming you visited either late in the day, or that you did not talk to any of our staff about what food was available. We don't have a physical daytime menu, as it comprises a mix of cabinet options and homemade sandwiches and soup. Our drinks menu on the wall directs you to the cabinet and our staff are always there to let you know what is available. As you can see from many reviews here, we do indeed have a good deal of option for both gluten free and vegan dietary requirements. Almost our entire cabinet of savoury food is vegan, vegan and gluten free sandwiches can be made up upon request and our soup is alway GF and vegan. We have both GF and non-GF sweet slices and cakes.

We are lucky enough to be very busy during the daytimes so do not take bookings before 4pm because we have been let down in the past by bookings not showing up, while walk in customers can't get a table.

I am very sorry that you chose to give us a poor review online, which obviously really hurts us as a small business, rather than talk to our lovely staff who would have been so happy to point you to whatever you needed. We hope you'll give us another chance in the future.

Lovely little coffee shop, very popular and lunch excellent. Buzzy and friendly. Nicely decorated with plenty of comfy chairs and sofas. Well worth a visit.
