She Chocolaterie

She Chocolaterie serves up an impressive selection of chocolate desserts and drinks, and has earned a spot in the Lonely Planet Top 10 culinary guide. You can watch the Chocolate Alchemists crafting their sweet delights on-site — or you could opt for the popular weekly Chocolate and Culinary Tour. The signature Chocolate Elixir is strong, rich, and exactly as stated on the menu. Pair that with a chocolate raspberry ball that isn't too sweet, and you've got a treat that truly hits the spot.

Cafes

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.
