Wake up and smell the coffee…

Start your day at Café 1851, one of Christchurch’s coolest cafes and your local spot for expertly crafted Mojo coffee, T2 tea, a cheeky pastry (we won’t tell), light meals and a friendly local welcome. The Christchurch café takes its name from the original hotel built on the same spot in 1851, and was one of the city’s first hotspots for meals and accommodation. So why break tradition? Now Cafe 1851 is the place to start your day, the way you want to – fast, slow, food, coffee – it’s your call. It’s just our job to make it delicious. We’re not just grab’n’go too- with our modern menu and chic décor and sunny windows, it’s a great spot to escape and refuel, or catch up with friends over lunch. Here at Cafe 1851 and Crowne Plaza Christchurch we are also all about connections – so hook up to the free Wi-Fi and save on your data.
