When we visited, the cafe was undergoing renovation so were rather cramped at our table outside. However, it was a warm sunny day and it was pleasant enough in the location by the river. Our food was good and we had plenty to choose from, Service was friendly
We had a late lunch at the cafe and it was very tasty and a good location on the river.Friendly service and we even got in the background of a TV feature on the new complete no smoking ban,that is being trialed here.
A great place to relax and enjoy the city check out the river bed all the liquefaction and sediment have been removed and it looks good like it did before the quake.
Take your time and enjoy the view of the Avon. Great coffee, great choice of food and very friendly service. Good location, very close to the hospital. Indoor and outdoor seating. Lovely place to sit and watch the world go by.
A lot of activities can be done here from punting or canoeing. While enjoying the whole strecth of river with alot of ducks you can also enjoy the whole view of the city and nature at same time. With free blankets and comfy seats this will make your nostalgic ride a memorable one.

Fabulous way to see the Botanic Gardens from the river in punting on the River Avon. Cool concept and really makes you realize how "English" Christchurch feels.
