  3. 5th Street

    5th Street

    Walk through the doors of the beautiful 5th Street and one thing is blindingly obvious: this is a place that has been created with a lot of care. Care for the stunning f (formerly a fruit and vegetable warehouse before being transformed by owners Chris Penny, Jonathan Spark, Sam Stewart and Max Perry), for the smiling and proud staff, for the delicious food and drink delivered to each table and finally, care for each visitor who walks through the door – ensuring they feel welcome, comfortable and valued.

    With this amount of consideration and care for a dining experience, it’s no wonder 5th Street is an outstanding spot for evening dining and is a...

  4. Addington Coffee Co-op

    Addington Coffee Co-op

    Addington Coffee Co-op is, simply put, a great café and a true Christchurch institution.

    It first opened back in 2008 and is housed within a repurposed building that once functioned as an auto electrician and a mechanic’s workshop. High ceilings, exposed beams, brickwork and warm wood, plus floor-to-ceiling windows, create a space where you’ll want to linger. Add to that a collection of vintage chairs and tables, large rugs and a couple of couches, plenty of greenery and a box full of kid's toys and you may as well be sitting in a cosy lounge at a good friend’s place – a good friend who also makes excellent coffee and food.

    From the...

  5. Akin Café

    Akin Café

    Akin is as clean-cut as a café can be. Situated in the heart of the Christchurch CBD at the high end of High Street, this is a café created by designers and architects, and it shows. The minimalist interiors breathe a sense of sophistication in the space where nothing unnecessary exists. The walls are bare with purposeful paint brush marks as the only touch of texture, the floor is concrete and wooden tables are paired with black chairs. A touch of muted colour is introduced in the form of natural tiles along the counter, as well as with a few deep green Arnold Circus Stools dotted inside and out.

    Complimenting the Japanese-Scandi-influenced pared-backness...

  6. Allpress Espresso

    Allpress Espresso

    Come see what all the fuss is about and make a trip to the Allpress café on the Sydenham side of Montreal Street. A clean, open space, for encouraging free thinking on coffee dates and business meetings. What was an old junk-filled mechanic workshop has since been converted into a stylish, modern café space and barista training facility (have a look at the photos on top of the food cabinet to see the transformation that has taken place).

    Order a piccolo and peek through the glass windows into their training service hub, where the Allpress baristas of Christchurch are taught the craft of fine coffee. The café has a cabinet of Italian-style sandwiches,...

  7. Ally & Sid

    Ally & Sid

    Ally & Sid is one of those hidden gems of Christchurch that you won’t easily stumble upon, but once you’ve discovered it, you’re sure to return. The main focus is on exceptional coffee brewed to perfection every time. If you’re a filter coffee junkie, this is the place to point your nose towards – an ever changing variety of filter brews from around the world can be sampled right here, with a weekly variety a common drawcard and a point of discussion for regulars. On the food side, expect to find a selection of fresh sandwiches crafted from seasonal ingredients and locally sourced bread, a variety of sweet treats and a compact menu offering a few special...

  8. Arbour Woodfire Pizza

    Arbour Woodfire Pizza

    Nestled in-between a hairdresser and a backpacker, Arbour Woodfire Pizza in Lyttelton is striking from the curb.

    The building has been custom-built as the owners' original pop-up pizza joint was in need of an upgrade. The exterior is awash with cypress and an elaborate gate. Designed to look somewhat mysterious, it invites closer inspection.

    Step inside and there’s no mistake you’re “in port”. An old Lyttelton fishing boat – adorned with cast iron mermaid – has been reclaimed and repurposed as a centrepiece bar. This charming seafaring vessel makes the space feel homely and familiar.  The rest of the interior is...

  9. Austin Club

    Austin Club

    The secret is out on Christchurch’s late-night bar scene – introducing: the Austin Club. This speak-easy imitation lies hidden in a basement down an alleyway between Cashel and High Street. Entry, in true prohibition-era style, is strictly by password only (this changes monthly and is available on the club’s website and social media channels). Once through the pineapple door, a graffitied stairway leads you down towards the bar where all the magic happens.

    Low ceilings, dark wood and dim lighting create a glamorous feel within this unique space. The drinks list is heaving with cocktails and an impressive array of atypical spirits you won’t find at every...

  10. Barrys Bay Cheese

    Barrys Bay Cheese

    A few things were happening in 1895. Tchaikovsky’s ballet Swan Lake premiered, Swedish businessman Alfred Nobel passed away establishing The Nobel Peace Prize in his will and in Banks Peninsula, New Zealand, Barrys Bay Cheese was hand-making its first block of cheddar.

    Over 120 years on and Barrys Bay Cheese is still creating delicious, memorable cheeses. Although the factory may have changed (in 1952 the first factory sadly went down in flames so a new one was built) everything else remains the same – the handcrafted cheese still as sensational as ever, the milk still locally sourced from grass-fed cows on the Banks Peninsula and the love and care dedicated by the...

  11. Bellbird Bakery

    Bellbird Bakery

    Bellbird is everything you want in a local bakery: beautiful, simple design, cheerful customer service, a thermos of filtered coffee on the countertop that invites you to help yourself, and some of the most delicious traditional pastries and bread that you can find in Christchurch.

    While classic pastries like the Almond Croissant rank as one of their best sellers, you can also find the team trying out new recipes and pushing the boundaries with more inventive offerings. Take, for example, a recent Pastry of the Month, a Quince and Chocolate Danish, or their Rye Sourdough, a dense and nutritious loaf made with 100% organic rye flour sourced from North Canterbury. Thanks to an...

  12. Bessie

    Bessie

    Dark, a little brooding and faultless in its theme, Bessie is an immaculate display of fine dining in the inner city. Antlers take the place of coat hooks, while saws, cleavers and skillets hang from the kitchen framing and fur pelts dangle off chairs. Heavy menus are encased in leather and brass edging giving a modern day twist. Long tables, black leather booths and plenty of tables for two, mean the space flawlessly caters to all size groups.

    Friendly staff greet you upon arrival and talk you through the menu (they are definitely worth listening to for condiment advice). A bar tucked at the street end provides an elegant area to wait for a table, or simply to start the night...

  13. Black Burger

    Black Burger

    Found in the heart of the hustle and bustle of Christchurch's Riverside Market, is the small but perfectly primed kitchen that Black Burger calls home.

    What started as an idea born out of lockdown boredom, quickly gathered pace, and for those of you that salivate over a classic LA-style cheeseburger, this is the place for you.

    Black Burger is motivated by one mission… to source the finest ingredients and from these make the best damn cheeseburger in New Zealand. While this may sound simple, the execution is beyond delicious, from the Canterbury-reared Black Origin wagyu used to make the patties, to the Grizzly brioche buns and the crowd favourite McClure’s...

  14. Black Estate

    Black Estate

    A winery, tasting room and restaurant, Black Estate is famous not only for its organic and biodynamic wines but its refreshing approach to food. Locally sourced and organic produce gets turned into seasonal lunches every day of the week at this Waipara eatery.

    At least 90% of the produce comes from Canterbury and is used to make meals like roast duck leg with quinoa salad and seasonal vegetables; gnocchi with rainbow chard, sage, parmesan and lemon; or catch of the day with cauliflower, potato mash, cavelo nero and clam butter. To finish, try one of their fine desserts ranging black-boy peach pudding to chocolate and Waipara honest mousse, or local cheese with homemade crackers...

  15. Bohemian Bakery Central City

    Bohemian Bakery Central City

    Tucked away in the SALT District, Bohemian Bakery’s second storefront is a cozy enclave filled with the smells and sounds of a traditional bakery humming away as it pumps out some of the most delicious baked goods to be found in the CBD. Follow your nose to the Little High Eatery car park on St Asaph St, and poke around in the far corner to find the charming bakery entrance.

    When Maka Angyalova got sick of her corporate job she decided she wanted to bake. She mastered the art of pastry and opened Bohemian Bakery in Sumner three years ago. After attracting a large and loyal following, she opened the centre city counterpart which boasts the same quality with even more...

  16. Bohemian Bakery St Martins

    Bohemian Bakery St Martins

    Bohemian Bakery’s St Martins shop provides the south of the city with all of the carby goodness familiar from the bakery’s other locations. Expect to find a selection of slow fermented sourdoughs, perfectly crunchy croissants, delicious danishes, punchy pies and delicate tarts, as well as a selection of gluten free treats, such as the scrumptious cheesecake slice. Coffee is created with local C4 beans, and a selection of cold drinks from the likes of Chia Sisters, Born & Raised Kombucha and Karma sit in a fridge chilled and ready to quench that thirst. 

    An inviting entrance with covered outdoor seating surrounded by climbing greenery takes you through to...

  17. Bohemian Bakery Sumner

    Bohemian Bakery Sumner

    Located in sunny Sumner, Bohemian Bakery is a neighbourhood bakery inspired by the baking traditions of Eastern Europe, France and beyond.

    Owner Maka Angyalova, who hails from Slovakia, opened the bakery in mid-2016, with a passion and commitment for producing authentic bread and other baked goods, specifically prepared and baked by hand on-site. There are six different varieties of bread available, with an emphasis on their award winning sourdough baguette.

    A host of other ready-to-eat baked goodies also stack the shelves, including Hungarian goulash meat pies, vegetarian quiches, vegan pies and pastries, croissants, and a great selection of exquisite sweet treats....

  18. Bonobo Café

    Bonobo Café

    Bonobo: a benevolent primate, a trip-hop artist and more recently a plant-based cuisine destination in the seaside suburb of Sumner. Bonobo is a bold café making waves in more ways than one. 

    Owners Annelies and Deane, both Sumner locals, spent lockdown ruminating on the endless possibilities for this stand-out corner hospitality spot on Marriner Street. They approached the then owners about buying, a seed was planted, and they opened after a big renovation job in late 2021. The black exterior juxtaposes brilliantly with the bright hot pink and turquoise blue interior, awash with plants and natural light giving you the sense you are close to nature yet embraced by...

  19. Boo's

    Boo's

    As you walk off the footpath of Victoria Street and up the stairs to Boo’s, be prepared for a taste of Southern American hospitality, complete with inviting speakeasy vibes and a well-stocked bar. The premise of Boo’s is simple; whiskey, food and music, and the experience here definitely delivers on all three fronts.

    The attention to detail that has gone into the decor first captures your eye as you walk through the door - the bar is a showpiece.   If you are a lover of pool, there is a perfectly formed nook with a table and space for spectators, and when you enter the main dining space, there is an instant sense of cosiness and comfort, emanating from the...
