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!
Always a pleasure having lunch in the Terra Viva Cafe. And such very pleasant staff. Thanks
Very good all round
Excellent meal and really appreciated the comfortable and quiet seating. Will come again.
Fantastic high tea, thank you so much. Will definitely be back.
Helpful, friendly young lady served at our table and food and coffee arrived quickly which is always good when you're in your lunch break.
Great service & food thank you
Wonderful food as always! We have never been disappointed, and would love the recipe for the Pad Thai :)
Excellent brunch, the food is always delicious and with great service. Thank you.
Thank you so much for our recent high tea reservation. The food and service were lovely and we all had a great time.
The staff were lovely, the table looked great, the food and drink delicious and the plants in the garden centre looked lovely and healthy as usual, thank you for helping make my mum's birthday special.
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
Lovely place to meet a friend and chat, great atmosphere will def be back again soon! Thank you Xo
Always a good experience at Terra Viva.
Nice breakfast reasonable service
A most delightful lunch.
Thoroughly enjoyable brunch thank you 😊
Friendly staff, atmosphere relaxing,food out of this world, complete yum.
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.
Super dining. Only complaint is the noise in the inside dining. But that's ok we went outside super duppa place.
Food was delicious (as always) and the staff were awesome, the wait staff were helpful, efficient and very friendly.
Thoroughly enjoyable experience and an excellent and varied menu.
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!
