About Terra Viva Cafe

Terra Viva Cafe has been serving up award winning food since 1997 and having been awarded Canterbury's Best Cafe in 2014/15 we haven't missed a beat since. Our philosophy is simple - fresh ideas, paired with equally fresh ingredients, and friendly service. A beautiful outdoor garden setting alongside the garden center, that has a playground for the children, makes for a vibrant place to eat and socialise. Our menus change quarterly with the seasons so our patrons will always see quality seasonal, and, wherever possible, local produce on their plates. And by local, we really do mean local, often harvesting produce from the garden centre next door!

Cuisine: Afternoon Tea, Bakery, Cafe, Child Friendly, High Tea, International, Street Food Style, Vegan Friendly, Vegetarian Friendly

This feedback is for the food served. Unfortunately 5 of us chose the scones, jam and cream which were not very good. We think there was too much baking powder in the scones as it left an unpleasant after taste. The jam was tasty.

A little noisy for the older members of our party, but understandable given the rainy weather. We were thankful for the corner table in this instance! Otherwise absolutely ticked the boxes to celebrate the 80-something birthday!

Food was lovely but if you are going to stipulate a time frame that diners have to leave by,service needs to improve we waited and waited for our order to be taken in the finish had to go and request to order, food arrived quickly then no one came back to take any drinks orders had to go ask again and then waited and waited

Tasty Bang Bang Chicken lunch time two. The chicken coating was light and delicious and the addition of pickled ginger was a perfect zing to the salad. Pleasant smiling staff completed our mother daughter luncheon.

Very pleasant setting and food arrived promptly, despite the cafe being busy. Initial service on entering was slow as no one was at the main desk, however all service from then on was excellent. Many thanks!
