  1. Tramway Restaurant

    Tramway Restaurant

    The Tramway Restaurant is somewhat of a moving Christchurch institution. Most of us have seen it roll past us lit up with warm lighting, filled with happy diners waving at passers by. There’s something about it that instantly kicks those smile producing muscles into gear – it’s cute and charming, and who wouldn’t want to have a ride on it?

    Originally built as a passenger tram in Melbourne in 1927, the tram has been carefully repurposed and restored for restaurant use. A unique way to experience the central city as well as an exciting alternative to standard dining, the Tramway Restaurant has now been running for more than twenty years. 


  2. Truffle Café

    Truffle Café

    You may think of truffle as clandestine but this Merivale café - with the same name - is anything but. 7 days a week this busy establishment plays host to a colourful spectrum of patrons, from mums on the school run to business meeting aficionados.

    Located on Papanui Road, Truffle sits proudly on the corner of a petite Merivale precinct with an assortment of shops and businesses. Its generous veranda out front means people can rock up, order a tasty brekkie and watch the world pass by. Sounds rather good - it is. Inside the design is modern with accents of British racing green, and a large wrap around bench seat in the same hue is an inviting place to sit, relax and hum...

  3. Twenty Seven Steps

    Twenty Seven Steps

    Twenty Seven Steps is run by Emma and Paul, the good folk who used to own Akaroa’s favourite restaurant, The Little Bistro. As the restaurant’s name suggests, there is a short climb up the steps (no, there aren't 27) to the restaurant, which occupies a large upstairs space: it is essentially four upstairs shops combined into one. An effortless combination of old and new, Twenty Seven Steps is modern and sophisticated. The respect for this building’s heritage in a city where heritage has somewhat crumbled away is special, and the beautiful and quintessentially New Regent Street, arched windows are the heroes of the space.

    With so much time between the initial...

  4. Unknown Chapter

    Unknown Chapter

    The fresh, open, clean layout of Unknown Chapter undoubtedly takes some inspiration from the bike riding, coffee drinking, easy going attitudes of Amsterdam, where not surprisingly owner Jeremy has worked and lived for the last two years. Roasting coffee beans for a job, and previously owning a café in Queenstown, means he has all the knowledge and experience to make this a further success story.

    Floor length windows running both sides of the space mean the café is not lacking in rich natural light, and a big old beautiful coffee roaster sits gleaming in the front window, a project the café looks set on starting soon. Seats tucked beneath a bench against the...

  5. Utopia Ice Central City

    Utopia Ice Central City

    What started as a farmers market stand is now a local, dual location ice cream empire. Head down to southern High Street to experience all of the delicious, classic, exotic and mindfully made flavours that have taken Utopia Ice to where it is today.

    In the freezer you’ll find flavours like rhubarb and hibiscus, dark chocolate sea salt and black sesame crunch. Did we mention those flavors are all vegan? About half the flavors here are vegan and as owner Mandy Klapschuweit says, “We don’t just do vegan ice cream to check a box, we do it because it tastes great.”

    Non-vegan options include flavours like classic vanilla bean custard, Tonka bean creme...

  6. Utopia Ice Sumner

    Utopia Ice Sumner

    It’s a bold move naming your business after the ultimate paradise, but it couldn’t be a more accurate description of this beach side nirvana. Entering through the quaint eden-esque courtyard to reach Utopia Ice’s counter is a treat in itself: Step through tiny wrought iron gates, past lawn furniture adorned with colourful cushions and blankets, a wooden swing seat, children’s toys and crucial shade-providing umbrellas.

    At some point of your stroll, you will be drawn to the large blackboard hanging on the pink wall, above the white subway tiles and below the hanging pendant lights. Get excited. This blackboard is big for a reason.

    Here lists the...

  7. Westend Stories

    Westend Stories

    Hidden in the heart of Christchurch's bustling and vibrant city centre is a secret garden. Westend Stories is a green oasis for those looking to temporarily escape the confines of their workplace and tomorrow morning's deadline.

    With its elongated and inviting open spaced design, there's plenty of room for you to stop, take a breath, and a much needed gulp of Allpress Espresso. A jungle of greenery hanging from the ceiling and sprouting from pots at every step is complemented by arms of industrial lighting poking from the walls, scandi-style dining sets and contemporary art.

    Immersed in the soul of Christchurch’s business hub, you’ll find top dogs caffeinating...

  8. Zeek's


    Everyone deserves a good lunch, and you’ll get a great one at Zeek’s. Fresh, fast and super tasty is the name of the game. Perfect for a workday grab and eat, a post-gym feed, or a chilled weekend lunch with mates. Zeek’s is all about honest, hearty soul food that leaves you feeling satisfied, but with enough change left in your pocket for an after-work bevvy.                          

    Inspired by the back-alley takeaway bars of Greece, the minimal fit-out has a comfortable, lived-in feel that’s casual with a few fun quirks....

  9. Three Boys Brewery

    Three Boys Brewery

    At Three Boys Brewery we personally tend each small-scale brew, right from selecting the best malt and hops until it leaves the brewery. Our beers are a living product; not filtered and not pasteurized - just as nature intended. Our aim is simple: finest quality beer, finest possible taste. Our beers are brewed, bottled, and canned on site so you can guarantee quality and freshness every time. Join us in our tasting room at 592 Ferry Road in Woolston. We've got an ever changing tap selection and plenty of cans & bottles in the fridge.
