Great little cafe/bistro for breakfast and lunch. Friendly staff and quality food. Very close to the city center and the park.

“An Excellent City Centre Cafe”
Reviewed 11 November 2013 via mobile

The Coffee House serves tasty lunches which are brought promptly to the table by very pleasant staff. For a relaxing coffee or tea the Coffee House does equally as well and with both indoor and outdoor seating situated in an original villa the surroundings couldn't be more pleasant whatever the weather. I can thoroughly recommend the Coffee Shop to casual or business patrons and if my work was in the City the Coffee Shop would certainly be my "local".

“Good food and great coffee”
Reviewed 7 November 2013

WE ate here one Sunday afternoon, the food was really good and as usual the New Zealand portions were large. The coffee was very good and the service was excellent with all of the staff being polite and friendly

“A lot more than coffee!”
Reviewed 4 November 2013 via mobile

Unassuming little restaurant on Montreal St not far from the Botanic Gardens and a little away from the city centre. Service was friendly and timely. The starters ( scallops and ceviche) were very good, the Lamb Rump was succulent but the Hare and Mushroom Pappardelle was to die for. The flavour just leapt out at you.

Just called in to get a coffee and a scone. Lovely strong coffee, service was GREAT, and the cheese scone was amazing. Will definately go there for brunch next time I am in the city
