Two Rivers Cafe. Cheviot. Canterbury

On the road between Christchurch and Kaikoura Two Rivers is the perfect stop for a quick bite or a long lingering lunch. Created from the renovation of an old building in Cheviot that started its days as a garage and will be remembered by most as the Dalgety building which it became for many years.  The conversion into a gallery and cafe has been tastefully done to incorporate a lot of the original features which add to the character and charm of the setting.  The outside area at the rear of the building has been planted with lawn and natives and, together with the extensive deck, makes a sheltered sunny venue for al fresco dining.

Our Delicious Foods

The food in the cafe is all made in house, with a cabinet full of enticing treats both savoury and sweet.  There are daily breakfast and lunch specials available and a fine selection of beer and local wine.  Where possible local produce is used including meats and small goods from Harris Meats, seasonal salad greens from The Port Gardens and locally produced free range eggs and organic fruit.  There are extensive choices of food for both vegetarian and gluten free customers.  The coffee is Hummingbird and the tea Teatotal and both can be enjoyed in the cafe or to takeaway.  The cafe is open daily from 7.30 a.m. - 3.30 p.m.
