  • I never knew that there was so much variety in New Zealand cheeses. Ask to taste any that take your fancy. You will not be disappointed.  more »
  • Definitely a place for cheese lovers. They let you try the cheese before you buy it. We got NZ cheese, I think it was Parmesan and it tastes good. It is located in a walking distance from the Visitor ...  more »

  • Rude and abrupt staff member had a go at one of us for touching the plastic price tag and huffed that she was going to have to wash it. Funny thing is that you'd think if they are that particular about it they'd have signs up saying don't touch or breathe or speak near the cheeses or have the food behind glass displays, and oh hey maybe the staff might even wear gloves too!!! Perhaps they don't have any germs. Plenty of other places to buy cheese.
  • Fantastic cheese selection. Great breads. Great coffee. Lovely sitting outside in summer.
  • Fantastic cheese and service. Great raw cheeses and aged. Good condiments for sale. We love the ecceles cakes too. Small amount of 10 mins parking which works during the week.
  • You step inside and look around. You speak with a cheesemonger and buy some cheese. Boom $62 later. It's certainly an easy way to buy some really. Nice cheese
  • The cheese is quite good, I've just had consistent issues with the staff that show and cut the cheese. They are generally not knowledgeable regarding cheese and can be quite rude about being close to the cheese. I even got yelled at for touching the corner of the plastic tag with the name and price of a cheese as it was just laid flat and not visible. For the prices that you pay for the cheese you'd think that they'd have better and nicer staff.

Where to stay in Christchurch

Offering an extensive range of hotels, hostels, motels with kitchens, and campsites, Christchurch makes a great place to set up camp as you explore the city and beyond. The greatest diversity of accommodations clusters in the city center next to North and South Hagley parks. You'll find apartments, boutique and luxury hotels, and backpacker hostels in the central district and towards the coast, while cheaper places to stay--such as motels, RV parks, and economy hotels--dot the outskirts and the area surrounding the airport.
