Review of Vivace Espresso Bar by duffling on Thu, 26 Apr 2007:

The bar on hereford street is SO MUCH better than the other location! , The the guy with the big nose the rude 'TONKA idiot' so rudely referred to is a hell of a nice guy hes just too busy to kiss the ass of every teenage christchurch punk everytime they order a LATTE! do you want great coffee or a nice chat about how WICKED Salmonella dub is?

I can get over how rude some people are..

This bar has the BEST coffe in christchurch without question well worth a visit.! 11 out of ten as long as TONTO ( the guy with the big nose you Tonka ass )


Review of Honeypot Cafe by duffling on Thu, 26 Apr 2007:

The coffee in this place is ok , but the SERVICE always is terrible

Grumpy girls every time , the staff here have no idea about good service and really should stop doing K because they look DEAD.

everytime I hear about bad service its usually about this place.

Food is good but overprices , coffee is not bad but bad service spoils and good work in this area.

SMILE ladies and wear something nice!


Review of Timmy's Espresso Bar by duffling on Thu, 26 Apr 2007:

Its an OK coffee bar , the but coffee fluctuates in quality too much , some days its pretty good , other days is almost starbucks.

Decor is ok , very student flat ! would suit a lot of people and its relaxed

Staff are super super freindly. A slightly underdressed girl who works there makes it a bit Christchurch back alley seedy im sorry to stay , but Timmy has done a good job

Sorry to say , Vivaci underneath this bar is about 60% better ..

but its worth a look!


Review of C1 Espresso by duffling on Thu, 26 Apr 2007:

Well its one of those places if you know the people working there your cool , otherwise you might get a cold stare or some attitude

The coffee once again is sometimes great , and other times too weak..

It is a cool place to sit and watch people , and is a busy place , it has great hours almost always open longer than other places.

It supports music both local and NZ wide which is cool

I have also seen some rude remarks from the owner.. perhaps he just needs to meditate?


Review of Zippys Cafe by duffling on Sat, 12 May 2007:

Great coffe always consistant , and great service the guy who usually serves me is super freindly ( Nelson always is ) and makes a great Latte ,

Vegetarian and Vegan food which is on high end of the price scale but is worth it as its very tasty.

Well worth a visit!
