176 Oxford Terrace, Christchurch

On the banks of the Avon, you may have spotted a bold terracotta building popping against the Christchurch sky. Housed in this art deco establishment is a range of exciting local businesses including Miro - your new favourite spot.

Open for breakfast, lunch and brunch seven days a week, Miro is a welcome addition to the line-up of Christchurch eateries. Miro brings a seamless approach to service. Here you’ll find friendly and attentive staff not dissimilar to a fine-dining experience and a menu that will make another visit compulsory. The good news is the care and attention doesn’t stop there. Every item is crafted in-house by hand with the utmost skill and passion. Miro even has a baker who starts at 4am so you can enjoy fresh handmade bread, croissants and pastries. That’s dedication worth appreciating, so stock up on those baked goods!

It would be remiss not to rhapsodise over their selection of delicious breakfast cocktails (!). Classics like Bloody Mary and Mimosas and for the more adventurous, a Breakfast Martini with Scapegrace Gin, Cardrona Rose Rabbit liqueur. Featuring an obligatory nod to the morning meal with the addition of marmalade. The menu swiftly moves to favourites such as Eggs Benedict and Hazelnut Butter and Banana Buttermilk Waffles. Plenty of sides and desserts too, it’s possible to induce severe food envy. At the epicentre of it all is Miro’s commitment to local producers and suppliers. Their aim is simple; source the highest quality ingredients in New Zealand.

Miro’s penchant for the little things is reflected in the stylish and cosy fit-out. With log burning fires, gorgeous wood floors and panelling, big windows letting light and sunshine shine in, it’s easy to imagine passing a few hours in this delightful space. There’s even a bunch of event spaces to hire for any occasion.
