Review of Mainstreet by Beaker on Sun, 17 Jul 2005:

Mainstreet - what hasn't been said about it? For years an icon of Christchurch Vegetarian cuisine, and now updated and cleaned up a bit. The food is pretty good - the breakfast and lunch menu is good for a snack (or more). Coffee is C4, and really quite inexpensive. A quad shot latte bowl for $4.50. Incredible. Being somewhere that doesn't roast its own coffee, they can hardly be expected to make too much of a hash of the coffee making, and they don't. Worth visiting.
