To help you on your hunt for a weekend local that won’t end in frustration, we have rounded up the best cafes open on a Sunday.

Hello Sunday

6 Elgin Street, Sydenham, Christchurch

Hello Sunday has certainly made a name for itself with its superb brunch menu and perfectly brewed coffee. This ‘made from scratch’ cafe makes everything from the sauces right through to the baked goods in the cabinet.

Lyttelton Coffee Company

29 London Street, Lyttelton

A quirky place humming with activity, this Lyttelton-famous establishment is home to a roastery and a café big on sustainability, community and authentic fare. Keep an eye out for local artwork donning the walls and the occasional music gig.

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.

Ten27

1027 Ferry Road, Ferrymead, Christchurch

Bringing upmarket cafe fare and live music performances to Ferrymead, Ten27 is a refreshing departure from the big box strip malls of Ferry Road. A charcoal bun beef burger and truffle polenta soldiers with avocado sit pride of place amongst other cabinet food and sweet treats.

Park Ranger

114 Riccarton Road, Riccarton, Christchurch

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.
