Here in Christchurch, we're fortunate to have a bustling café scene with many top quality places to choose from. We've put together a list of some of the best cafes in Christchurch to try while you're enjoying a stay with us at Westside Motor Lodge.
Passengers & Co is located in a business park on Russley Rd and if you're there for breakfast, try the chunky homemade muesli and poached fruit. The chef's focus is on local Canterbury produce. Sadly though, it's not open on weekends.
Café Lumes, on Fitzgerald Ave has a great industrial character, fantastic coffee and a simple, good value menu. The homemade waffles are a specialty and you can rely on bright and welcoming service.
