The cabinet food here is super yum! The staff were friendly and cracked a few jokes which I always appreciate. Would recommend going here for coffee dates for sure.

Got there at 10.00 and not too busy - but became so shortly afterwards. Great nested eggs, and fantastic coffee as usual. Usual great service and barista Chris is always good for a laugh.

Lovely café at The Tannery, well worth a visit to indulge! There are many beautiful and nice things to choose from their cabinet and menu. They make delicious coffees too. The service is all done from the counter and was reasonably friendly.

Excellent brunch: very tasty, large portions and reasonably priced. Quality ingredients are very much appreciated, especially the bacon which is well above average for NZ. The cabinet food also looks great, but brunch didn't leave us with any space to sample.

Excellent food came twice during our visit to ChCh. Shared a calzone & salad along with a glass of wine. Next day had a Salmon on a rosti, equally delicious.

We called into this cafe on our visit to the Tannery, for Brunch. A very nice tasty brunch in a popular little cafe. We sat upstairs away from the crowds. We would recommend.

Mitchelli's is a family owned and operated cafe that pre-quake was located in the city, nestled in Poplar lanes. Now Mitchelli's Cafe Rinato (meaning reborn in Italian) has opened at the Tannery. You will find all the old favourites, including a variety of gluten free options, plus a tasty new breakfast menu, gelato, wine, beer and of course magnifico coffee by our very own Cristian del Valle. Come in and explore our new surroundings, including a private meeting room, and enjoy our unique atmosphere.
