Only rated as 1 because it is no longer there!!!Used to love calling in to the shipping container café with superb coffee, great snacks and even dog biscuits. Was excellent to collect picnic supplies on the way to the Horse Park and Dog area at Rough Island. The new café in Mapua township is more of a formal café but cannot replace the original shop! (although I do love their lavender shortbread!)

LOVE this place.... great coffee out of a little container. So pleased they had yummy bagels and ginger loaf when I visited with my two year old on the way back from the beach. Love visiting here mid-bike ride or after beach visits to sit in the sun and relax.

Because I am often so disappointed by bought coffee, I very rarely buy one. After sipping the takeaway coffee my husband had bought from Rabbit Island Coffee, I raced in to get my own. That was 5 weeks ago and I still think about how good that coffee was. Can we please have a Rabbit Island Coffee in Christchurch ?!!!

Went there last weekend after going for a dog walk, great service with a smile and great people, the smoothie wasn't to bad either! It is not a restaurant and I didn't order any food (would be good to be able to skip that part of the review thanks tripadvisor!)

Excellent espresso and latte. We made a detour to grab some coffee based on high ratings. Minimal food on sale at the moment due to a dodgy interpretation of law by local council. Definitely worth the detour. And they have a café up in Mapua as well.
