The cafe scene in Christchurch altered substantially in the year 2011. What at one time existed as a defined city centre with bars, eateries and outlets, now Christchurch has witnessed its cafes spread around the city attracting inhabitants and visitors to virtually all sections within the city. It is ideal for the suburbanisation of Christchurch as many regions were lacking developed areas of local independently owned stores and cafes. Visitors and locals continue to be spoiled for choice in terms of choosing the best place to eat.

But not only are cafes sprouting up around the outskirts of the city, cafes in the center of Christchurch are making a return.
