Gentle Giant

Like many of Christchurch's creative businesses, Gentle Giant's location in an unappealing, mostly industrial area belies its warm interior of recycled-wood furniture and antique rugs. The menu balances sweet and savory breakfast-brunch favorites like avocado toast and eggs Benedict with more-innovative ingredients like spicy pork belly and kimchi. Coffee is locally roasted, and there are a variety of smoothie choices to complement a healthier meal of superfood (think kale and quinoa) salads. The Gentle Giant team is also behind Insitu Café, located in Woolston near the beautifully curated shopping center known as the Tannery.
