Fodor's Expert Review C1 Espresso

$$ Christchurch Eclectic Fodor's Choice

Sam and Fleur Crofskey are among the pioneers of Christchurch's new, edgy dining scene. At C1 an enthusiastic staff roasts and serves superb coffee and overhead pneumatic tubes speed-deliver burgers and fries to your table. Try the corn-and-coriander fritters with bacon and guacamole. There are intriguing stories behind everything—from the grapevines and beehives on the roof garden (look up before you walk inside), to the unusual drinking fountains and LEGO bar (look carefully). Alternatively, sit outside and feast your eyes on a beautifully laid-out vegetable garden. And another special touch, their own-designed matchbox tea selection gives you one to infuse there, and one to take home as a souvenir.
