Review of C1 Espresso by kopi on Mon, 17 Apr 2006:

I have been frequenting C1 since the early days when it was only half the size and in my opinion is one of the few cafes in chch that has remained true to the meaning of their establishment, 'coffee.' There have been positive changes over the last few years with added and more comfortable seating, cleanliness and lighting probably being the most obvious.
The coffee is very consistant, the food is affordable and the atmosphere relaxing.

I was surprised to read the review from the month of march and the experience they mentioned they had, as i have only encountered and witnessed friendly and helpfull service. I am confussed as a grande or petite coffee only seems to be available at starbucks and not from any establishments i have been to in chch.

I'm sure anyone who has frequented C1 in the weekends or lunchtimes will realise and see how busy it is, so if you have to wait it is probably due to the fact people are waiting for their coffee/food in front of you.There is however a Mcdonalds about 100m around the corner in tuam st. never tried their coffee but i'm sure the service is very quick!
