Addington Coffee Co-op

297 Lincoln Road, Addington

A cafe slash fair trade shop slash laundry, Addington Coffee Co-Op is many things to many people. Try one of their superb meals from the menu or sample a little something from the cabinet alongside their in-house roasted Jailbreaker coffee.

Little Poms

294 Kilmore Street

A neighbourhood café all about good food made by Christchurch’s talented producers and artisans, you’re in safe hands for breakfast, brunch and lunch at Little Poms. Sit at the large communal table and marvel at the open kitchen and flamboyant walls.

262 Tuam Street, Christchurch Central

When it comes to serving great food, Uncommon just gets it. Based on the Melbourne cafe scene, their spot on Tuam Street is a local favourite. Here they serve up a well crafted menu of breakfast and lunch meals that are a little outside the box of usual café fare.

Park Ranger

114 Riccarton Road, Riccarton
Christchurch & Canterbury

Park Ranger sits on a leafy corner of Riccarton Road. There's a real focus on things that are handmade or produced by artisans at this cafe. The kitchen team makes its own chutneys and relishes and granola, all of which line custom-built shelves, along with a well-curated collection of other artisan-produced products that are available to buy – everything from Hasami Porcelain mugs to locally produced Mikau Teas and Lyttelton Lights candles.
