I'm a local and have visited the Co-op plenty of times. Whenever I have family visiting from out of town this is one of the places I bring them to for lunch. It's always busy and full of people from all walks of life, from family outings to business meetings. The staff here are always lovely. I love the addition of the flags for your table. The food comes out in a timely manner and the presentation is beautiful. We sat outside after a walk once with our miniature Fox Terrier and the lovely man came out to say hi and have a conversation. All the times I've been he interacts with his customers. It's the nicest environment to be a part of and has such a sense of community. The food comes in a variety of options ranging from GF to Vegan. I appreciate how the fruit and vegetables on certain dishes vary with the seasons, providing consideration for sustainable eating.

I rate this place 10/10 on environment, food and service.

We were staying in Christchurch & were looking for a nice breakfast so chose this one for it's 'Trip Advisor' reviews ....When we walked in just after 9am on a Saturday morning, the place was nearly full with patrons & really humming.... This is always a good sign to a cafe's popularity .... We both had the Muesli & were not disappointed - fresh & delicious .... Drinks were great also + friendly staff . It was so nice seeing the older gentleman who looked after the book shop also walking round & helping out collecting dishes & talking to young & old - such a good fit as he obviously loved his job ... Will definitely be back here next time we are in town : )

Quick service, awesome breakfast, fabulous coffee! And the wee gift shop inside was perfect for some early Xmas shopping.

This is one of our favourite Christchurch cafes and the food is consistently yummy and service is always good.

As Omicron is still making the rounds in New Zealand, they warned us as we ordered that food and drinks would likely take a little while as they are short on staff. But it wasn't a problem at all - we had coffees within 4 minutes and the food arrived after 15 minutes. All nice and easy.

And delicious like always. We had the eggs Benedict- one with bacon and hazelnut dukkah, and one with roasted mushrooms and spinach. Both were yummy although we did notice that the portions were a little smaller than when we were last here ayesr ago.

We also opted for a cheesecake donut and an espresso and vanilla chocolate bar. Both were really nice dessert choices.

We topped this off with flat whites which were well made as always.

Service was efficient and friendly, and I do like that you get a random country's flag after you ordered at the counter instead of a table number. A cute touch.

We will definitely go again

Fantastic coffee, friendly staff and delicious caramel nut slice! A great atmosphere & interesting decor, well worth a visit! The only downside is the limited parking & difficult on-street parking, but if you’re within walking distance it’s the perfect cafe!
