Most people don't realize the cafe really comes alive on Saturday nights when they play live music!
The food is great - highly recommend the chicken and cranberry pizza - it comes on a nice thin base.
They crank the fires in the winter making it warm and cosy - with a good selection of whiskey and one of the larger selections of craft beers in Canterbury- this place is actually a hidden gem. (On Sat nights)

We had a walk around, so just stopped here for a coffee and a quick food.
We had flat white and some pies. The place was a bit pricey, but not badly.
The coffee was ok, but the pie was bit dry.
We liked the atmosphere of the place.

We just had a short stop in this cosy café before we went to the big trees. The staff was super friendly and we had the best coffee there in 4 weeks Newzealand!

Admittedly only bought two cups of coffee but they were both tasteless and watery. Given that most coffees in New Zealand have two shots, the taste was very disappointing
