C1 Espresso

Finding its home in Christchurch's old post office building from the 1930s, this cafe has become a Christchurch institution. If hungry, try one of the mouth-watering dishes such as pan fried prawns or chicken Caesar salad. Portion size permitting, your order will be delivered in a playfully retro manner — via pneumatic tubes! A place full of character, excellent coffee, friendly staff and welcoming atmosphere.


There is no shortage of great cafes in Christchurch and the inner city is bustling with good places to have a relaxing break with a cup of coffee or tea. Many new outlets have emerged alongside old favourites, many of which are used as social hubs for the Christchurch locals.
