Not a bad spot to pop in for a coffee on the way in or out of the city centre. Nice atmosphere, good coffee, and pretty decent service. Best we've found in Christchurch so far.

Called in for breakfast this morning after seeing it recommended in the Lonely Planet guide. We had two of the big breakfasts. The poached eggs I had were under cooked and the breakfast as a whole was pretty average. It's trying to hard to make a cooked breakfast fancy instead of just keeping it simple and doing it right.

Called in for breakfast but was a little disappointed. The coffee was burnt & tasted bitter & I felt the food was over priced. Basic bacon & eggs $18 and Eggs with salmon $22. Wasn't anything special...

We had a late breakfast on a Wednesday morning and Vic's had a busy buzz about it. The food and coffee were very good and came out quickly. The atmosphere and decor which included music and show posters was well suited to it's vibe. We would definitely go back there again.

Breakfast was so good we went there both days we were in Christchurch. Bacon and eggs-a hit and the chai latte was excellent.

in Christchurch for a couple of days and staying in a Motel 5 min walk from Vic's Cafe, we had breakfast there both mornings. We tried poached eggs on wholegrain, fruit salad, the muesli and toast and jam over the two days, all good. Good coffee which is essential at breakfast and we also tried the fresh made juice which...
