Old Post & Telegraph, Office building 185 High St, Christchurch Central City, Christchurch 8142, New Zealand
Interesting cafe. Great decor, a unique food delivery system for some meals (pneumatic tube) and a cool way to go to the bath room ...behind an automatically opening bookshelf and an old sewing machine converted into a water dispenser! So if you're going for 'the theatre' of food delivery, this may be your place. Can't comment on the coffee, but the curly fries were hot & fresh though our other meals were on the greasy side. As others have mentioned, meals were a bit pricey for what you get but nice for a once off visit that is a bit different.
Great food options, and just a fun place to be! And if you're not a coffee drinker, they have the best array of tea in town. Treat yourself to a sweet thing from the cabinet or a pipe of curly fries. You won't forget the experience!
The coffee gets 5 stars too. Where it falls down though is in the food. It's not bad. It's good actually but not up to my expectations of a place this cool.The staff were all really pleasant and friendly but a little too eager to clear the tables, this probably isn't so much of an issue when they're busy.All in all, well worth checking out but there are definitely better brunches to be had in ChCh.
Good food and great coffee. Not many options for people with allergies to fruit as everything has something (pear, apple,etc) in it, even the bottled drinks. Music could have been a little bit quieter but fit the aesthetic. Have loved this place since before the earthquakes.
There is no better place in the city than this one. Simply loved it. The concept is cool, meal portions are good enough and taste fantastic. The coffee was good too. They always serve with a smile and service was quick.
