C1 Espresso

Cafe in Christchurch

C1 sits pretty in a grand former post office that somehow escaped the cataclysm. Recycled materials fill the interior (Victorian oak panelling, bulbous 1970s light fixtures) and tables spill onto a little square. Excellent coffee, eggy brekkies and bagels are available all day, while sliders (delivered via retro pneumatic tubes!) and burgers combine with craft beer later in the day.
