Review of Brigittes Espresso Bar by milk on Tue, 05 Sep 2006:

I always have a good cup of coffee here - the last was a trim milk flat white. The milk was thick and smooth. The atmosphere is great, and the food is also great.
A wide range of ages visit this cafe.


Review of Coffee Culture Sumner by milk on Tue, 05 Sep 2006:

We've had cappuchinos there before a movie, and they were great. It has a really good atmosphere and the assistant was happy to make our coffees quickly, so we could get to the movie. In summer it's really nice to sit outside, with our coffees and enjoy the atmosphere of Sumner - a bit like Nelson.


Review of Nor'Wester Cafe by milk on Tue, 05 Sep 2006:

Great coffee and great food. The service was quick and a nice atmosphere.


Review of Le Cafe by milk on Sat, 09 Sep 2006:

The coffee is good here, and so is the food. It had a nice atmosphere as part of the Arts Centre. In the summer it is great to sit outside under the huge tree, and watch the trams and bustle of the Arts Centre. The service is usually pretty good, and the waitress got us our trim milk cappuchinos quickly, as we told her that we were going to the Court Theatre. However there can be long waits in the summer, when it is busy.


Review of Misceo Cafe & Bar by milk on Sun, 15 Oct 2006:

The coffee is always good here, as is the food and the atmosphere. A wide range of age groups come here, ranging from people coming for coffee, family groups for pizzas and family meals, people coming in for meals, and others coming in for drinks. It is always a lively, buzzing place.


Review of Little River Cafe and Store by milk on Mon, 02 Jun 2008:

This cafe has a great atmosphere, bustling and full of people. The coffee is good, and it has great food - mainly for lunch. There is an art gallery attached, which sells art works and smaller gift type items.


Review of Cognito Bar & Cafe by milk on Mon, 02 Jun 2008:

Great coffee and great food. It has a good atmosphere, not too big, and attracts a lot of people in the area.


Review of Nor'Wester Cafe by milk on Sat, 05 Jul 2008:

We returned to the Nor'wester cafe to have lunch. The food, coffee, service were all of a high standard. The cafe was full of people, all having a good time - a great atmosphere.


Review of Canterbury Museum Cafe by milk on Sat, 05 Jul 2008:

This cafe was full of people and the service was good. There's a great view from the large windows of the park, especially as it was snowing at the time.

The coffee is great here and the service is good. This is a restaurant and the meals are of a high quality. Situated by the lake, the views are impressive and give it atmosphere

This cafe is tucked away in Rakaia, but has great coffee and great food.


Review of Up the garden path by milk on Mon, 25 Jan 2010:

This cafe is set in a garden, complete with works of art. Inside there is more art for sale.
The coffee and food are great and it has a great atmosphere. It's very popular with young and old.
