I spent two months in Blenheim and I can tell there is no other place in town like Ritual. Great coffee, delicious food, relaxed atmosphere, fair prices and the friendliest staff ever. Just the perfect kind of place to go grab coffee and breakfast/lunch or to meet at with friends in the evening for dinner and drinks. Must-visit!

The vibe created at ritual is awesome, this is only made better by the fresh, wholesome menu. I really enjoyed my time while passing through Blenheim and this was a high point.

Great coffee served with a smile. Catch up with the locals and visitors to find out what is going on in the Sauvignon Blanc capital of the world. Walnut role-up to die for. Make it your Ritual to get your fix

The location of the cafe is very convienent. The decor is nice and it is a good place to have a coffee. But unfortunately the coffee I had a couple of times was not warm enough. The sweets they have not the normal choice but going towards the "raw diet" and a little more alternative, still good, but maybe a... More

We went on a recommendation for good food and great coffee and we weren't disappointed. Friendly helpful service. Busy with locals too, which speaks for itself. Will definitely return.
